I added Wink and Janesy86.
I also updated the chart on google docs if folks want to look at that.

I added a few more folks. I think I'm going to remove the height and width columns and just leave the sizes to make the chart narrower.

ok Chris, moved you down to the big tire section, removed the height/width column.
To make some of the columns narrower I entered a space in some of the usernames so the columns will line up better.
I might go back to some of the folks that have extensive mods and generalize some of them to make it fit better and easier to search similar terms.

ok, I added a few from the 17 inch crowd, still quite a few to go. If I missed anything in someone's build you think is important please feel free to post or PM me. I'm still not 100% satisfied with the layout yet but it is a lot of good info I think I need to capture as much as possible. I'll try to get more builds added before worrying about the layout too much.

Man, I have been really slack on this thread, I need to try to finish it, at least a few of each size with interesting mods.
Philberto, I updated yours, we aren't tracking shocks yet. Everything else should be ok though.
Christian, I'm not sure if you were in the original Lift/Tire chart, I used that as a template to begin with. I have added you to the list.
Chris, you should be all set as well.
I'll try to add some more over the next week or so to make it a more valuable tool.

I'll work on getting you and Vali set up.

ok, I've spent the last few days working on updating this chart. I think I have an entry for pretty much every size and I think I have an entry for anyone who posted here requesting. There are several folks with new builds that aren't quite complete. When you get your build complete (at least for now) send me a PM and I'll try to get the sheet updated. Make sure your first post follows the guidelines and has the most up to date picture of your build.
The chart was built based on those originally in the tire chart. I know there are a lot of builds out there that aren't in this chart. If you don't see your build and would like to see it or you know of a good build with interesting information PM me and I'll try to get them added. I'll continue to review the builds and add the ones that have interesting things to offer.
