I said "stock style" as in box, arm, drag link ect as opposed to full hydro. I know with stock its tough to get more than a few inches and I know you couldnt push the rear back 10 inches or anything but with the reversed arm I didnt know if there was a minimum distance you needed to push it forward. I am thinking of making my own tank with whatever room I have left under there and I was curious as to how you liked it. With making your rear frame half (as I'm doing) I dont really need one that mounts in the stock location.

It's hard to get more than 1" of front stretch with the steering box in the stock location and highsteer. If your willing to run a flat pitman arm and limit your bump you can get maybe 3 comfortably.

I moved my box 4" forward to get 4.5" stretch. Seemed like the best option to me.

Looks like he is running an astro box, tilted flat, with a flat pitman arm. Should work well.

you got it, the box is right up against the radiator so that's what limited the front stretch, I think it ended up being about 5.5 in the front and 5 or so in the rear....

it ended up a little wider than I would have liked on the iroks but that is easily fixable. it's 82" to the outside of the 37" iroks. with my dads creep's it's ~80"

It's a Koz tank.

Gotcha Tab. Yes, hydro assist, not full hydro.

Oh yeah! If I was paying him by the hour to sit on his ass and look at it, I would have to remortgage my house.

Tab, the target was to make snofari. I think if we keep going, we'll make it. Just not shure whether it will be 09 or 10. Actually, if the driveshafts show up next week, we may try to roll it out next weekend. Still gotta take it for the exhaust though.
