I finally got my trans crossmember built so i was able to get the truck mobile again. Needed to check flex to figure out what i could do about fenders and qaurters.

My LF shock is fully extended but i still had another 2 inches before the rear reached the point of putting tire into body (which it can). And the RF tire was into the inner fender support.












I was flying around the yard and the truck feels so much more stable being 3"s lower.
