Thanks! I've kinda looked at doing the relocation kit and mini tubs, but I think I want to do more. We'll see when it actually comes down to $$ though! Might rethink the big tires.

I'm still going round and round in my head, tub, mini tub, no tub, spring relocation, nothing at all and call it good....... I would like to put a bigger tire under it, just for the "look" really. How big of a tire can I fit under the 63 just by doing the spring relocation, like with Crites kit?

Still going round and round.......might be back to the Crites kit idea. Seems like without narrowing the reareand it wouldn't help a whole lot because their is only so much room to go out? I guess just run a wheel with a lot of backspacing?

I would narrow the rear...Crites may have some guidance if using their stuff.

Narrowing and back half was my first thought, then I thought about cost.....

I know an awesome local guy that can narrow the rear & you can use cut to fit axles, but yeah...all in all it’ll be a bit spendy!!!! :lol: :lol: :mrgreen:

Thanks, I've got a friend that can do the narrowing, its just the rest of the stuff, wheels/tires, third member, metal, etc, etc....... I'm still thinking on it.
