I was doing some measuring last night and I think I may need to raise the floor up a bit back there to allow the stock tank to fit and leave some room for clearance to the ground. As it sits now I think the stock gas tank would be wayyyyy to close to the ground for my liking. But Id like to use the stock and retain the stock filler location so I guess Ill just have to make it work.

You definitly have a badasss pathy tho, what are the future plans for it?
Im running the factory tank. If the truck is sitting oakland it will drag the gas tank skidplate, but a single lick will bring it high enough to keep from dragging. Yeah 20s are a lot more work. Especially the rear latches. I have a set of rear doors tubbed for 22's they have tiny latches

Yea, I think I may raise my cargo area floor up about 2" to add some extra clearance for the gas tank. I like to ride low most of the time so I may as well do it now.

Those are hand made cross shafts, and all the mounting for the the upper arms and bag plated was fabricated. I dont know of anyone else running surpa stuff on the front or rear of their mini. I had to shorten the HB lower arms to correct the camber issue so now it sits in a reasonable place from full lift to full drop. Theres about two degrees negative camber at full lift and full drop, and 0 degrees in the middle.
