    I was originally thinking 4-1/2" for mine,and put it on boxed stock rails....now I'm thinking nearly double the chip and deuce rails.
    It drastically alters the balance and proportion of the car when you switch from a stock frame to a deuce frame.And not in a bad way,you just have to tailor your chip to suit the frame you have.You hit it out of the park.Post some more pics as soon as you take them!

    The body you started with looks like it could have been one of these ranch trucks.

    It looks good now.

    Bad Ass! I love the stance. I'm a sucker for a radical chop. It just screams "HOT ROD".
