Project: "Turboyota" (Tur-BRO-yota would probably be more accurate)

I don't think so. I don't know exactly how close right now, but my shock will mount ~13" forward from axle centerline. For a 53" link, the shocks would mount out 40" from forward link pivot. At a 1.325" motion ratio, that would net me 18.55" of travel. Granted, it doesn't take into account leaning the shocks forward...

While not as fancy as Turbo’s, I built this little stand for a $99 HF bandsaw and it kicks ass. I use it a lot and found it really saves me time. It lacks throat depth, by much like in my personal life, it hasn’t been a problem.

I can't wait to move into my larger shop with my big welding table so I can get mine setup permanently since I know I will use it 1000x more than I do now.

It's a blessing and a curse.

I've spoken with Morgan Clarke about how he sets up his ground clearances, and he says he goes negative lol. Not sure how the suspension is supposed to keep working after the chassis hits the ground...
Better get a good skid plate of u plan drive hard at all. In the race truck we have tagged rocks before with the carrier bearing crossmember. ( never felt it) I want to know the magic to tune negative travel. Might be good for grooming the deep 2 track. Lol
