    Detroit Speed and Engineering has a mini tub kit for us now. I wish it came sooner since I just had a custom 3" tub done on mine. They look to be sweet units, and if welded in, ground and seam sealed, they will look factory.

    Very cool way to get low with meats. Here is my mockup with 315/35/17's before the minitubs and 3-link. I love this look!

    For $1700, I think I would go with a martz or Alston 4 link

    Your ride looks sweeet.

    The price for the mini tub kit is in my opinion very steep.

    I dont really see the point if the tires arent much wider than what you can fit in there without the modded tubs. A number of us have 315 35 17s as it is without tubbing.

    I dont understand why that kit is so much more than the 1st generation kit when the base 1st generation kit even comes with the leaf springs included.

    These deep tubs will allow you to fit 335's with no problem. That means you don't have to roll the fender lip, and you REALLY limit the chance of any rubbing.
