    I think I took a total of 20+" out. For some reason I'm thinking I did like 11 or 12" per side.

    I took 8 3/4" on each side in the front. I took it from in between the rad support and headlight bucket and welded the headlight bucket back real close to the rad.

    and in the rear I moved it in all the way to the frame, i think it was 16" on each side.
