I have two steering arms (high steer arms), so basically the crossover steering arm is also used in the high steer. I am getting 2 2" blocks that go under the high steer arms to help clear from the springs.

If you are nice enough to mrpeal, maybe he can take a few snapshots of my arm and his 2" block.
here is the steering arm, but mine is red

Here is the lift block, but these are actually 3", I only need 2".

If you don't mind me asking, how much did the crossover steering wind up costing you?
I built the guys site so I got everything for free. Once it is up I will link to it. Well, I mean once he is done putting all of his products on it. It is already up.
Sweet RC! Looks like it wheels awesome!

tires look good{cool} i thought hummers ran something like a 371/2". ???where did you get em'?bias or radial?how'd they do?
Those are the older hummer tires. Goodyear Wrangler XT. They switched a handful of years ago to the new MT's. You can get used ones from Boyce Equipment for a decent price. $75 each, $25 each for shipping. Good tires too. MUCH better than what they run now on them Hummers.
Sorry Michael, I didn't see your question about the tires. Smokin guns is correct, these are the older style hummvee tires. I can get them for 39 bucks a pop though, the ones I got were in super shape, one looke practically brand new!

I was really suprised with them. I didn't think they would be that good in the mud, I am use to swampers and ground hawgs, but they impressed me. My only gripe is they aren't wide enough for me.

I have to get locked up to do the real testing, but I will be sure to let you know how well they do in mud when locked up.

You can get them for 39? This contact you have, do they have more? I'm very interested ;D

They have like 100 sets or something like that. They also sell the big 52" michelins for 114 bucks a pop.

The tires aren't on the site, you will have to call them.
I'll definitly be giving them a call. Thanks for the info Sam!
I will soon have the high steer setup done along with hydro assist (I hope). I also plan on going with a 3" body lift.
Looking good Sam can not wait to see some Clean pictures. LOL

have the 2" blocks for my steering arms coming in so I can finish my high steer setup and have the hyrdraulic assist coming soon too! Won't be long to have that part finished.
installed the high steer a while back and did a midnight hack job on the rear fenders with a sawzall before we left to Ram Jam. Sucks working in the dark, hard to cut straight :)

But, I now have new ideas, going to do a full coil spring suspension and move the axles around a bit.

Oh yeah, almost forgot, we dropped in a fresh 440 before Ram Jam.
Pictures Sam! Pictures!
that fresh 440 isn't so fresh anymore. Gotta pull the motor and rebuild it. I hope to get started on the supsension soon.
52" tires? holy shiznats! thats a big ass tire. thats 4'4" tall tire! thats taller than my friends brother. u need that and about 15" of lift and a 4" body lift. then have a rope ladder on a winch on each side to get in and out.
RC now has a temp 400 in it (thanks Skip and Mike). One of these days I will rebuild the 440. Broke a hub on our last Chapter Meet, and it happens to be the external locking hub Dana 60. That isn't bad, but since I wanted to convert to 35 spline outer shafts I would also have to change to internal locking hubs. So as you can see, Dana 60's aren't bulletproof, but I would rather loose a hub then an axle shaft :)
need pics...........
