I'm in EG too. Get that leg healed up & we'll hit the trails. I've been wanting to pick Reids brain on this for awhile now - just had some spare time so started searching & came across this forum.Not to get off topic, but where are you at SickStick? It says Nor Cal on your ID. I too have a Maverick and I'm also interested in changing the rear of my car.
I'm a fabricator by trade, and have a shop, although my experience is in commercial and industrial fabrication, maybe with some of mearsman's and Reid's info we could stretch our cars out.
Also, thanks for your post, I had all the same questions. Saved me some typing.
Or we could just go trail riding once my leg heals.
Ok, back to the thread and the knowledge.
