I thank y'all for the heads up! I didn't think about the side load on the heim.
The heim will be horizontal and the bolt vertical. I just hope this doesn't change up my squat numbers to much.

Anyone got any good pics/drawing on how to make the strongest mount and reinforce it?

Well, those springs aren't going to work.

CO
8's reb
10's comp
3 bleeds open

BP
8's reb
15's comp
all bleeds closed.
Thank you for the feedback!

These are the original measurements from the bypass shocks.
I'll need new rebound stacks for both and compression stack for the coilovers,
but do you think the comp stack on the bypass will be sufficient?

Yeah, that should work.

Getting the reb fast enough might be an issue.

Springs are going to be like 200/200 at most LOL......

Also, as noted on previous builds, going from leafs to links actually moves weight forward and reduces traction. Moving your tank forward will make it that much worse. You should really scale that thing before you hack into it to get an idea of where you are at.

What about flutter the Reb stack?

The fuel tank will be 5gal more and will be slightly back from the stock local only higher up. Over the upper links. (If it fits).

There will be two ammo box for tools. also two spares mounted vertical off the sides of the cage. Eventually pannel in the rear to make a "trunk".

This truck will probably never race NASA or ARA Events but will definitely be at SCCA events. I want to build it (like a prerunner) to the point where I could drive it there, race it, and drive it home (close events).

I'm hopeful to have it together to race the next event these guys have
