Well I caught the pro-touring bug and did some heavy mods over the winter (which in Alberta runs September to May :))

Here's a few pics of the mini tub, and test fitment of my 20x10 wheels. They fit very well with 7.2" BS (my rear is .5" wider than stock)

Rear suspension is a re-engineered Total Control Air link. It had to be modified to take advantage of the mini-tub.

I'm going with a 295/30/R20 rear tire and the front will be a 215/45/R18

I can't wait either. I had 13" of clearance so I could have safely went with a 305 tire. I do want to ride pretty low so the 295 was a chosen for some wiggle room :)

Very nice indeed!! :thumbsup: Do you fab up the tubs yourself? The reason I ask is that I will be doing this in the future, and was wondering if you had a few tips
I can't take credit. A local shop did the work. The bill came out to about $1200.

I really like the tubs. Do the interior fiberglass side panels fit over the tubs, or will you be modifying/eliminating them?
Yes, the panels will fit and I will use them. I don't use a back seat, I fabbed a rear shelf. Under that I have all my electronics ( MSD, amps, air ride distribution block, subwoofer, circuit breakers, xtra fuse boxes etc...)

That looks great! With those big tires in Canada, you will have no problem with winter driving conditions! ;)

Do you have any pics with the tires mounted? Im guessing you also had the fenders rolled? And did you stick with 65/66 Outer wheel wells, or did you use the 67/68's to get an extra inch and a bit of flare?
Tires have yet to arrive. I didn't have to roll the fenders to fit the tires as I have about 13" of room.

The outer wheel wells stayed stock. The shop fabbed the inner wells to maximize clearance and still keep the inner fiberglass panels.

Are you using the stock springs and gas tank? Did you remove part of the frame rail?

Looks great!
