Its starting to look like a bronco again...


still need to cut the fenders/quarters but this gives an idea of what she will look like.
the rear is about ride height the front is at full stuff.

they came from a race car over on your side of the state, you know the one that does back flips....

they are 1" difference in back spacing from my racelines so that makes the tire really close to the shocks...

no the quarters are tipped in some because they are not cut and hit the tire. the same with the front but they will be sticking out.

or are you meaning the front tires sticking out past the fender?

the fronts seems like they stick out a bit but that's just the fender the grill is nearly 4" thick so that will make it more proportionate along with a little tube bumper which should put it all in a good location. Im going to try to bring it in about 4-5" if possible but Im trying to set it up with maximum uptravel with out sacrificing to much of the looks. really trying to keep it looking like a full body bronco (or as much of one as possible...lol)

I meant how far they stick out past the body. Just used to looking at mine with stock width and 90% of the tires are under the body, but yours is narrowed a bit as well.

Will look better with the fenders cut out too I am sure.
