    Re: What\'s your wheelbase measurement?

    I'm just over 107 which seams funning since my front is 5" forward, but my rear is flipped and with 57" fords with non altered center pins. i was trying to turn the fords around to put me at 112" but it was a no go. depending how it turns out after my new front shims I may move the rear with a zero rate to put it as far back as I can.

    I don't want to spoil it so I'm not gona say just yet. pics will be coming soon. Right now my approach angle is like 89 degrees!!! I haven't measured it but the only thing in front of my tires is the very tips of the frame rails.(No bumper yet) I can't even turn the steering wheel. The tires hit the fenders. Sawzall is coming out tomorrow.
