    CUstom Fab?

    Has anyone fabed up their own parts before? Is it worth it? cause im looking to make elongated arms. To make the wheel base an 1" to 1 1/2" wider.
    I'm hittin' easy street on mud tires.

    Um, I've made some custom parts, but, they aren't exactly "high tech" LOL. I just made mud flaps, an exhaust stinger, and extended nerf bars.

    Um I think it would be hard to custom make wheel adapters without a REALLY fancy machine...
