6" on the chassis, 11" on the axle. Lowers are triangulated slightly wide at the axle narrow at the chassis.

11" is a lot. don't be afriad to get that around 8 or 9". A pretty good ballpark is 6" on chassis, 8" on axle, or 7" on chassis, 9" on axle

Good, that will help keep your upper heims alive (sharing the load)

Here is the back all tacked in. Pulled the axle and suspension today and started final welding.




Redid the top front bar that got bent lifting it out of the tire pit from hell at bundy wo years ago. Moved it down alittle and going to sheet the roof.
