Looks like any up travel will make contact with the fenders.

I've been at this a long time. It's best to clearance tires at the lowest stuff point possible. Once finding the lowest possible height with the desired tire size, yields the best CNG. It will not be rubbing anything and handle better than anything with a 6" lift or more. Not like any of the retards with big ass lifts use the endless room in their wheel wells since their tires can't flex into them anyways. Those lifts and tire packages never even see off road anyways, and we all know most of them fall apart as soon as the see a curb or blade of grass.

Way more aggressive than I'll ever go but dang that looks great! Dig those wheels with the 37's but the proportions do look a bit off with the tires that big....just my aesthetic though. You do you.

...and whats up San Jo?

I'm in Mountain View.

Just going off looks it seems as though you have about 3" from the tire to the top of the fender. Have you cycled it to see if you will hit it? With your mods I'm sure you're clear on the sides. Just looks like the top will be the limiting factor now.

Not much. We actually live just south now, but I was born, raised, and still work in SJ.

Ya I know the front still needs to come up and I have over 1.5" left in the coils. The fork lift lost the starter on Thursday so I wasn't able to flex it to make sure that the rears tuck inside the wheel wells before contact, but that will be the next step. If I have to have the rear fenders pressed out a hair to clear that will be my solution rather than lifting the rear any higher.

Thanks for the pics of the slider mounts!! Love the LCG look and like you said, this will perform way better than any 6" lift any day! Coming from a 4 door wrangler with 37's on a 3.5 inch lift and huge clearance fenders its way better to be lower than tall and unstable, just gotta bumpstop appropriately and its all good!

I'm new to the forum here but I bought my Canyon last year. The diesel was the big selling point for me. I traded in my lifted '14 JP JKU. Loved my jp but it couldn't pull my boat up to Clear Lake without laboring. I might have been slightly overloaded but hey, you use what you have. Anyway, this build of yours is awesome!!! I'm glad to see you went with the sensible IVD stage lift as opposed to some crazy 6" crap. I bought mine in November and but the IVD stage 1 on it. I hate the rake on pickups and don't like spacers. I'm running stock tires but my next plan is to run 32's but if I can get away with 33's then I'll do that instead. Your daughter is very lucky and this build is an inspiration. My next upgrade will be the Duramax Spade Tuner. Check it out. Anyway, great looking truck. Thanks for the documenting the build.

UPDATE 5/14/17 Skid Plates

SuperSkidz plates 1-3 going on. Finally we can take it wheeling without fear of destroying the oil or trans pan. Ordering up skid plate #4 for the transfer case tomorrow and then I'll just have a couple plates to make myself for complete protection. Plates still to make will be a plate from the Winch to plate #1, gas tank, and spare tire.
