il be looking out for that. I really want to stretch the rear of mine and comp cut it but trying to find the best way to do so. Ruffstuff makes a spring perch kit that can stretch the wheelbase from 1-3" without changing the hangers or anything, I'm considering that or just flipping the leafs when I get all new suspension parts.

Oh, and I have heard great things about monstaliner too. I just haven't used it personally, but I'm sure it is just about the same as the u-pol raptor kit.

I havent had any issues with axle wrap yet, I havent wheeled it to hard yet either... I did manage to break a shock mount, which is what I am in the works of re designing.

only 4:88s? What size tire do you plan on running... those axles are going to be anchors with 35s... 5:13s and 40s would be nice...

38s or 39.5s is my goal. I choose 4.88s because I will also be doing the TeraLow kit.
