You need a HighGuys lift.
Or any lift.
Just a lift.
Those tires are gonna be stuffed against the fenders the first time you go wheeling.

UMMM He did lift it. Brian is a masterful builder, and a great problem solver.
He did not just put some big tires on it and call it a day. He really did lift it what your seeing is the tires filling in the wheel well after the lift. Because believe those wouldn't have even fit in a stock height imp wagon.
Now go take you wanna be criticism somewhere else. What you got that's lifted huh? And if you did I bet it was with store bought pre fabbed bolt in stuff, not your own engineered items.

That is a tough question! I personally would stick with the diff lock, but the advantage of the 4.11 diff ratio is very appealing too. With this in mind, some fellas over here have been "building" the best of both worlds. With some ingenuity and good welding skills they've created a 4.11 ratio pinion shaft that will fit the RX AWD tranny with locking centre diff. Here are some pics of the one that is destined for my AWD L box build:
^ Note the weld about a 2 inches from the pinion gear.
I'm not sure if this was made from two EJ AWD pinion shafts, one being the 4.11 gear or if an RX AWD pinion shaft was cut and shut. I currently don't have an EJ pinion shaft handy to compare I'm sorry. Food for thought, sorry I didn't actually give you an answer to your question!
Yeah you were!! Classic.
Totally agree! The thing looks wild with no lift and the large tyres!
Keep up the good work - can't wait for some pics on the tracks!
