The metalcloaks will not require any more cutting unless you buy the comp cut armor, however....if you have already cut your rear end, you will probably have to cut your armor to match

So it's update time.....I took my 1.25 bl lift this weekend, I also threw some roller tires on it since I am pretty sure my 35s have sold. I also decided that I am going with the cloak rear stretch quarter amor so I went a head and stretched the rear out a little more I am now at a 95 wheel base and am needing to figure out how to clearance my gas tank some!

Cool. Skye, Vegas and I have all done the gas tank mod in the past two weeks. It is documented in our build threads.

Here's a teaser for how I did it:

What do you need a gas tank for?

I hear squirrels prefer nuts.

What spring perches did you use to adjust the wheelbase and how drastic of a change is it?

The perches where from more off road, between those and my sagging fabtech springs I have a 2 inch stretch in the rear which is a noticeable difference in my book!
