I'm considering doing it sometime soon. I just can't stand the thought of having the car down, though. I think it could be done in a weekend or two, but you never know how it's gonna go until you get the Sawzall out.

It's not that I really need to do it. There's no practical reason for me to do it. My tires don't rub, I don't need more travel.....

IT JUST LOOKS COOL DAMMIT!

It's just so much work, I can't get myself to start.

Thoughts?

My beam is pushed out 2". I like the look, but I now have 1x1 arms on the front so the wheels have move back 1 inch.

I would not go over a 3" push. My tires were real close to the head light buckets. I think 4" I would of had rubbin' problems with the front of the fenders and head light buckets.

They are ready but the spindles are not. You can run them with drilled out stock ones but the uniball version is not done.
