Hey dude ssssssslow down when you type.I know you're excited but the missing letters make my stomach hurt.I would junk the stock TLT tires ASAP,seriously.Besides that looks like you're off to a good start.

IS your wheelbase longer then 12.5ins or so? If so I would shorten the front links a little and get some Moabs or Maxhers. Then your set.
