no new updates yet.   i have most of my stuff for crossover and hydro assist as well as my frame repair kit but i haven't installed any of that yet.  i am hoping to get some time and money soon to take care of this. 
 
just all bad luck at this point.  whatever is the worst that can happen will

last night i mounted the new h2 wheels and 35" BFG muds i got from ruben (thanks ruben  :beer: )
 
with my 16.5" wheels and 37" miliatary tires at 20 psi my measurements from sheet metal to the ground in the front were 32" and in the rear 31.5".  I measured at the same point with both wheels.  my measurements with the new 17" wheels and 35" BFG mud tires at 40 psi and the measurements were exactly the same.  now i know this probably due to the tire pressure difference, but i am glad it will be close even when aired down. 
also the offset is much better than what i had before.  my hubs are actually flush now with the wheel which is better than them sticking out.
belwo are some before and after pics

I like the rims!!!!  When...WHEN you get a 60 and use those rims, you'll have the same problem with the hub locks sticking out.  Mine are getting tore up!

The ram seems too exposed.  Have you considered some sort of protection?  I'm sure you've bent the crap out of a tie rod before, well that ram will bend in the same way.

Nice flexy too!
