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

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!
