Um, I didn't try to fit it or measure it last night. I measured with Bryce before we started the build to confirm the front would fit between the wheel wells. I'm positive we decided the rear would not fit with the paddles BUT I NEED TO CONFIRM.

why not just take your grand? it'll go the same places as anything else out there....

Jim, now it is starting to come back to me. the front would fit between the wheel wells with both sets of tires but the paddles wouldnt fit in the rear. I remember now.

Well back up and get some speed. I'm sure it will fit if you go faster. Kinda like how the caddys drop a little at speed.

BTW nice looking rig.

Yup, I've had to reweld it every time I took it out. Dam thing nearly had the belly dragging the ground because the frame was so wacked out of place. Oh, and the shock angle really sucks too. I can't climb anything with bumps in it and have to idle down my gravel road.

Sucks bad.

That's why he's asking questions about it now. Trying to figure out how to do it right.

Nope, shocks at an angle don't work. Don't you know anything?
