    Top shelf build, I'm running the same suspension and not sure about how to build the tailpipes, did you have to run the tail pipes under the axle?

    I've run the exhaust under the axle
    Not the best pictures but hopefully will help.

    Thanks for that! with 3" pipe there's not alot of choice for exhaust routing especially if you use the high mount rear sway bar.

    Within the next 10 days, hopefully finished the paint process.
    When assembling the front end ( as not to scratch paint with luck}
    Is this the correct assembly order?
    1. Doors - (have previously drilled small alignment holes)
    2. Radiator Panel
    3. Inner Fenders
    4. Outer Fenders
    5. Hood
    6. Then adjust for final alignment before tightening

    Much appreciated

    I would leave the inner fenders out and install them only after fenders and hood are aligned.
