To move the frame rails on an s-10 in one inch from the cab back to allow for rear tire clearance..keeping the leaf springs..im building this for x275

I would think that is NOT legal. From X275.net - "Rear frame rails may be notched for clearance"

Sounds like thats a bit more than notching.

It's just my opinion but if you move the entire frame rail in then it's no longer "stock rear frame rails" and I would say "back halfed". For me the frame rail would have to be no narrower in the "notched" area than the inside dimension while in the rails are in the factory location, also the entire frame would have to be in the stock location.


. . . in my opinion

i understand..but the rule says complete stock chassis and frame rails...The factory frame rails are still going to be there..bone stock no 2x3 or round tube...what would be the difference in moving the frame rails in and notching the frame rails other than the fact that the rear suspension moves in an inch..

It will be more labor and expense to move them than to notch them anyway! Wheres the confusion?? :p

Moving them = not legal
Notching = legal
