    I was told by James Watson that 2" forward is the max w/ thier hi-steer/x-over. James said he runs 6" customs that are moved forward 2" and that it just clears. He did mention that he would recommend a good bumpstop to avoid a super deep stuff of the tire which might make them come into contact.
