    forgive my ingnorance if this is a dumb question, but i'm not a desert guy due to my location.

    Do you have plans to widen the rear? or does it stay skinny?

    Very different than what is usually posted, but very cool too. :thumbsup:

    the idea is to keep the track width similar. the next upgrade is a 9" rear end and rear fiberglass to widen the rear.

    Gonna run 35's for now 37's or 39's are in the plan eventually.

    Leaving it huge. Size matters...lol :D

    Really its not as big as it looks, and the shackles will be getting shorter when I replace them with the actual ones. so it'll work out.

    yeah and the SAS thread link is in my signature if you are interested. Im updating it now.

    thanks!
