Default Re: Rat Patrol front axle

Beam extension route is easier/cheaper due to the use of standard VW parts. I don't have numbers, but think most of the vrods here have gone that route.

The I-Beam setup doesn't use VW parts and is more involved, but the look is worth it :-)

There's some other alternatives too, like shortening the body, lengthening the framehead, flipping the tie rods, etc. Just dig around the site and you'll find a lot of good info.
