Thanks! Yeah it really is a nice tank

For a cleaner stretch you can use LJ rocker guards and Corner blanks to extend the wheel arch back. I think Lu is planning to extend his TJ rocker guards to use with his stretch corners.

I really like how the genright tank has the "ears" that bolt directly the the frame rails with a big bolt in shear. My pure jeep tank doesn't have that and this would make me feel a lot better per my diatribe a few pages back! Nice work it looks great!

Exactly it's a lot of work and money to stretch.

As far as the sliders your right ill be extending my current sliders with some steel to match up with the stretched corners.

Lou are you going to go to a 3" spring? I am going back and forth trying to figure out if I want to run a 3" spring in front and hi lines with 37's or if I should just run the 4" springs I have. Those fenders are sweet!

I went with OME 930 front coils and OME 949 rear coils. They arent a set 3" or 4" type spring for TJs but the front dropped me 2" from my 4" zone coils and the rear dropped about an inch.
