I was wondering what everybody's wheelbase is. Im in the process of lengthing my 40 now. With my current plan I should be able to squeeze out 98- 98 1/2 Inches.

How the hell did you get 100+ inches out of a cruiser. I moved the rear shackle hanger on the rear spring. Drilled perches off center. What did you do that I didn't? In detail Please

If you move the spring and shackle hanger on the front you get interference with steering. You must have put your steering box farther forward than I did.

My front has only been moved forward ~ 3.5"
The back has been moved rearward by 11"

My front is roughly 6 inches farther forward than stock. But yeah, my steering box is about as far forward as I could get it, without cutting into the box tube bumper.

Also my front SR hangers are mounted directly to the bumper. The rear of mine is Chevy truck springs, with the rear hanger moved back and a mega shackle/lock block in the stock front hanger location. :D

Works freaking killer.

98.5.....FJ 60 rear springs...front and rear. Rear hanger flip flopped. Shackel reversal up front. Purches mounted to the bumper, and the hanger hung from where the springs dictated.

Yeah I am just finishing up my new tube frame.

108" is long. I am just sick of this short wheelbase stuff. I want to be able to climb. I may have went a bit overboard and went too long, but I just liked it too much when I went from stock to 100" so I guess my rational was that I would like another 8" just as much :rolleyes:
