Do you have the tunnel kit on your site, or pics you can post here? I have been wondering what I am going to do for a tunnel.

Out with the old. You can see what a factory frame minus springs looks like. That's not far off from the ride height potential the ExtReme frame has.



To prepare to swallow 345s out back a mintub was in order. Also note the contoured rear sheet metal removed and the insert that we provide to better conform to the shape of the new frame rails and suspension.

Ask and ye will receive... Because this chassis has such a low ride height we have created and added to our production lineup a high clearance complete trans tunnel insert. It comes in three main pieces that are easily fitted and welded into the floor.

Trans tunnel looks great. Nice job on the frame, I like the color.

Looks great!
Nice to have a tunnel available for purchase.

From a side view, does the frame stick down lower from the body than stock, or less?

Are you able to use a Vaporworx tank, stock size? Or do you have to have a custom tank made?

Thanks!
