Re: Extended Wheelbase
well if you are asking me you are asking the right person. i've done it. i cut my jeep in half and lengthened it to a 100" wheelbase. here you go
stabilitly, more room (depending on how you lengthen it), better on hills, better on climbing ledges, did i mention it is alot more stable!? longer rear d/shaft. more room for mufflers, track bars etc under there, etc.
not as small of a turning radius, more sheet metal to ding (depending on how you do it).
i love my 100" wheelbase ALOT more than i did the stock one. it is alot more capable and less roll happy ( i sya that but i only layed it over when it was stock and i have rolled it completely since i have lengthened it). if i had it to do over io wouldn't lengthen the body but rather cut the rear of the back fenders out and slide the rear back. why? well like i saidd i have more sheet metal to ding and now with a rolled body i would have to buy another tub and then cut and lengthen it and i'm just not going to do it. i will run it like it is until i decide to build something else. this might not be an issue for youe if you don't wheel hard like i do. if you are just looking for more room the cut and lengthening is a good thing.
