Why only 2" of stretch for all that cutting?

its actually 4" of stretch with the lift. its 104" at ride height

the reason that's as far back as I went is thats where the rear dif begins to hit the tank.

I set it up to fit a 40" tire with a couple more inches of stretch, but that will require raising the tank. which I will do when it comes time for that.

I agree. 106-107 is going to be better, but tell that to the shiny spot on my dif cover from where it rubs the tank skid.

ah the joys of wheeling a cherocar. not having the 2 bottom bolts in the motor mount turns out is not a good plan.



repair time






cut out all of the affected area, both outside and bottom of the unibody completely. replaced all of it with 3/16".
there is also a 3/16" inner plate that is welded to the bottom and the inner part of the unibody that extends from the first steering box bolt all the way to the motor mount. also added a 3/16" stiffener that runs all the way down the bottom to the LCA mount. and is tied in to the rest of the HD offroad frame stiffener

Yes. It tore.

My opinion is that it was really the only thing holding the bracket in the right spot and eventually leverage overcame it and it tore.

Now that everything has been replaced and the outer section has been welded to the inner section that won't happen.

How bad does your tire rub on that trackbar mount?
