My hunting rig build! ((56K Instant DEATH))

Been having fun the last couple days with getting my rig hunting trail ready!
Still a bit of work left to go, but its coming along!
The lift is from Iron Rock Offroad and is the 7" Critical path long arm.

Here are the pix for you to enjoy!

A lot of work and expense for sure! How much will your ground clearance increase at the front and rear bell housings?

Well I always wondered that myself.

We lift the body all to H3ll and gone and the differentials determine how deep in the mud we can go.. But it do look neat
