How do you plan to stretch the rear? Flip the springs or move mounts?

Your build looks nice. I'm betting you'll be jumping to larger tires in the next year.

Well 14 bolt is in getting ready to cut for more tire room. Dana 300 is in all clocked flat. had to cut a hole in the floor to get it up that high so some sheet metal work will be main focus for the next few weeks.
