Perfect. Thanks for getting those dimensions. I had figured I'd go with a 15 gallon but if I can fit 19 that'd be better.

I think Svaras is going to run a rear seat...only so much room in a flat fender.

Hey Svaras love your build. I read in one of your posts that you have a Chilean version of the ultimate adventure that your going on in a couple of weeks. Is there any youtube videos of the area you'll be wheeling in, all I can find is what looks like an open desert bowl. Are you going to do a Gopro video? Love to see some of that Chilean action! Sorry about my pic cluttering up your page, it's hard to describe things accurately without pictures. The bed is flat except for the shock towers.

How much up travel before the upper links get into the tank?

You also raised the rear floor correct?

There is a track bar behind the shock so the upper links are not triangulated, they set directly under the frame. There is 6 1/2" between the frame and upper links. The shocks bottom out 6 1/2 also. I had to raise the floor 4" to get the tank up so the dif. would quit bottoming out. I've been trying to lower the rig, it's always been top heavy.

Ok...then I will go lower just to win against you lol....
Yes...at this point I only have the lids.....I will work on something, but its gonna be difficult having the "C" pillars from the cage right over there.
Tomorrow we will assemble the cage and see.
I have not measured the travel yet.

Looking at the seat location, are they going to get mounted that far back all the time or are they on sliders? Honestly it looks like they are a bit too far back?Maybe I have short legs.....
