Re: Third Gen Mini Tub Kit

Typically a mini tub moves the inner fender to the frame rails. A third gen already has the inner part of the wheel tub at the "frame rails". Well they're not really frame rails. They're multiple layers of sheet metal. The best you can do is to modify the bump stop and reshape the front and rear of the inner fenders to allow a bigger tire.

Do a search on the topic. It's been discussed many times. You can also look at my thread in the Fabrication section on doing a complete back half.
