Have you had a chance to give it a good looking over? Do you think it's feasible to shorten the wheelbase any further?

Ive decided to listen you the more experienced guys on here and not fight with ackermans angle. I only wanted to shorten my wheel base to improve cresting hills in off road applications. So instead im just gonna fab some rock sliders.

At least you have a tractor, it's fairly short. My dump truck is the same wheelbase and you can tell it's teetered at least once.

Its probably easier to remove the needless low hanging crap than to shorten wheelbase. 99% of these trucks that have seen real off-roading have the steps wangered. Removing the steps, relocating the batts and fuel to somewhere else will raise your ground clearance considerably.

Spend a day laying under the truck and you'll see what can be relocated.
