Hey guys! I am puttin the shaffer coil kit and toy axles under my rig pretty soon(when the kit arrives), but I dont know how far back I will be able to move the rear axle before I will need to move the gas tank that is unless I wont be coming in contact with it, but I dont plan on being that high. Anybody know how far I can move the axle back? Should I move the gas tank inside the bed? thanks!

i think i was able to move the rear about 2" or 3" without hitting the gas tank... then i took it out and moved the rearend back another 10" i'm putting a cell in the cab but it wouldn't be hard to just move the stock forward a little. theres room. i moved my front forward about 6" but you have to be careful here. i have my steering box mounted about 4.5" forward of where the stock box was. otherwise my tie rod and draglink would have hit during flex.

THanks poppy for the info. I really like the way you got your rig set up, its awesome. I ordered that coil kit from mike shaffer and now I dont know how much I will be able to move the rear back cause dont know how he is gonna make up the crossmember for the rear links, think I am gonna have to call him and let him know I wanna move the rear back at least 10". For the front I think I will move it forward about 2". HEy what are you doing for transfer case arms? Did you just reinforce yours or buy some?
