what should it be? i would imagine this discussion would bring many opinions! the jeep guys say short the truck guys say long. this project will be based on a lwb 85 chevy truck. 52's front,63's rear 4"-5" lift. 39.5 iroks by the way tim's offroad kicks a$$ thanks timmay! sheetmetal rub is not an issue. 1ton axles- doubler-1410 yokes and had shafts throughout etc! big question is before i start hacking what wheelbase is a good balance between short to fit tight spots and long for more stability? truck has the 131" wheelbase. since no box will be used a 115" to 120"plus wheelbase can be done. thats with the long springs front- rear approach-departure angles shouldn't be a factor since i will try to maximize those whatever wheelbase. is shorter better? no mud just trails and rocks!
