its ranger glass, 10" wider on each side

its overall 6'' wider per side. 19" of travel. w/ limiting straps prolly 18. Hopefully it wont look rediculous because the glass is gonna cover up the tires.

Yeah what year cab style do the fenders fit, and what year grille, etc are you running? I am planning on making some fenders that wide because I couldn't find anybody that makes some. I've been so busy though I've only been able to gather some of the supplies. If the ones you have will fit my truck (89 cab running 98 front end) I might be interested in a set. Steve

Just wondering why you didn't build a double sheer upright and junk the spindle?

I may not know what I'm talking about, but the lower shock and C/O bolt holes on your lower links look like they're a little too close to the end of the plate (i.e. not much material strength). Am I wrong?

as long as limit straps are used in a different location it is OK.

I just finish fixing a set of lower links with a similar design. Your Material looks a little thin around the shock radius, I would recommend adding a gusset similar to my attached photo. Add some material and run it>>>>>SLR
