    Back near post 132 I gave up on bringing my build thread to date and just started with the SAS updates. I get alot of questions about stuffing 37's with IFS so I will add an update from when I tubbed the fenderwells.

    The beginnings of fitting the drivers side...

    Removing everything from the wheel well:

    So far it looks like battery is going to be relocated out back, and I may luck out at the firewall. If not the kick panel electronics will be relocated as well to allow firewall tubbing. It would be way worse, but the AP Long travel pushed the spindles forward 1". Only time will tell.

    Almost done with surgery on the drivers side:

    Drivers side complete. New wheel well welded in and seam-sealed. Slight set-back when welding on the outside of the firewall I had a small fire under the dash :eek: Luckily I had a fie extinguisher handy and nothing major burned up, some carpet, sound deadening and a few relays. Really just a big mess from the fire ext. :(
