I know this will generate alot of smart ass responses but I wanted to ask--
what actual travel at the axle tip are you getting--what is safe as to not destroy the axle-
thanks

thanks for the tips on travel---
got one side done and every thing cut for the other, got to finish the loom, and plumb it, and install the rack, seat, cooler, helmet blower,floor, main bottom rails, cell mounts, cell fill, spare tire racks, piece of cake.

Might be in need of a ride in a pre runner on Thursday, anyone ??
