    Oh, I was going off of a 3.5" over kit. So 2" spacers might be a little shy but close.

    So with a 4.5" over kit, your front WMS to WMS should be around 74" and that ecocoline is 72" so that should make the front 2" wider than the rear which sounds about perfect doesn't it?:confused:

    Or order a speedway housing, you can get them any width and the are very reasonably priced. But keep in mind the housing is the cheapest part of going to a 9".

    Question for you! I have that set of PRP seats and several sites show that there are mounts for my truck but PRP is saying they dont make any for it... The sites all show 1995+... Any info?

    Its been a long process but finally starting to work on the Tacoma again, should be back on the road in the next few weeks, planning on using it for a little while the weather is nice then chopping the frame at the bumps early next summer for a more functional back half.

    Your forgetting spindles. I believe the custom Solo Spindles that come with that kit are wider as well.

    Does he have/is he getting solo's kit then? I just assumed the 4.5" over included the spindles. I'm not 100% on this but I think solo's kit, spindles and all, is around a +6 to +6.5 kit.

    Not Solo but American Motorsports.

    ok. I was trying to figure out where Monte was getting Solo from. haha Pretty sure it will be almost impossible to have a track width under 90" with the Solo kit, maybe if you were running 235's on skinny rims. haha
