Time for a Camel cut and a few other bits and pieces

I took the disco into the woods today to flex it's suspension to see what I will have to do to fit it's new 32x11.5x15 shoes next week. Right now the disco has 50mm OME Springs and Pro Comp Shocks and aftermarket 15x7" wheels. I don't know the offset of the wheels but if anyone else has these wheels and knows anything about them I would apreciate the information. The tyres that are on it right now are 31x10.50x15 A/T's and at full flex tried to tear out the guard, oops. So on the list is 2" body lift, camel cut, extended stops, and dislocation cones, (the springs came out at full articulation) had fun getting them back in by myself. The new tyres are Nankang Mudstars. Anything else to look for or modify that I haven't thought of?

Here are a couple pics I took at the point the rear tyre came off the ground. I was on a down hill slope so all the weight is on the front. Nothing special but it sure did like to crawl around in there

Those wheels look like hurricanes. Fusion has a set on his and runs a 32" Bighorn. I think they are 10.5 wide. Pm him and have a chat he won't mind.
Nice flex by the way, It would do me

What are the huge hubs sticking out of the rear rims... lockers, or just plastic bits?

They are just the horrible looking centercaps, they will be removed when the new tyres go on, the front are gone because I had both front wheels off when I replaced the brakepads. The wheels are Cheviot wheels 10"x7", Performance wheels make wheel nuts that fit them, nobody else does so when I replace all of mine, (rusty and missing all of the washers, I will be ordering several extras.
