yeah, i understand the short wheelbase is certainly not ideal for high speed stuff however, it's great for tight trails. there's always going to be a compromise. i'd like to keep my 35" tires and stay at 4" of lift. i'm definitely considering long arms (which have some adjustability for length/wheelbase). the new rough country LA upgrade specifically. can't beat the price at 900 bucks. i'm also looking into the diy highline fender idea to keep the up travel i have, not limiting it with extended bumpstops. long arms would also give more downtravel. to take advantage of the longer axle stroke i'd have to find a way to run longer shocks. i'v seen a few ppl notch the outside of the frame in the rear so the shocks can be run outboard of the frame. for the front i'v seen modified and lengthened upper shock towers and custom hoops to lengthen the front shocks. those are my ideas for now. any other input?
