Icon6 A new flex shot

It's been a while since I flexed out he truck. Had to ramp it out to to measure for a new driveshaft. Should be getting a drive shaft this week sometime now :)

That flex between the body and bed seems normal to me. Mine does it, lol.

Do you have a straight on picture of your truck from the front and back sitting level? I would like to see how far those tires stick out with the SAS and wheel adapters. Thanks!

Front and back widths are virtually the same. I'm kind of disappointed that the truck isn't wider but it still looks good IMO. The tred is literally flush with the outside of the flair but the bulge is outside of the flair.

I see it now on your build thread, duh. Lol. I love that width. When I get mine under way, it's going to be the same setup as your's, just 1-2in shorter. Looks great man!

This is one of the reasons I didn't BL mine.
