Cool build, I like
My driveline guy suggested offsetting the pumpkin like this. I mocked up a set of standard offset steel wheels with 195/65-15 tires on them last night and I feel I'm still alittle close to the body exterior with the outside edge of the wheel. I'm been doing some research and I think I've found a way to run a compound angle. If I can pull off the compound angle thing I am going to shorten the right side tube some more and center the diff.

Keep in mind I'm not a building or fabrication god. I am just a dude with a big welder and a desire to build wierd stuff. I am learning as I go so there will be changes made to this project on the fly.
