Beams!

So looking at starting a jeepspeed wannabe desert trashcan. And have came across a set of beams from supposedly a ranger and been extended.

What are the average lengths jeepspeed guys are using??

The beams I'm looking at seem to be LONG. 57" from heim to hub.


And since everyone loves pics here's a pic of the beams

Beams!

I should mention I feel like they'd be long the jeep. At 57" it puts the hub mounting about 3-4+" outside past the body. Which to me would make shock mounting a bit difficult.

But looking for input

Re: Beams!

All the Jeepspeed guys are running a 2wd beam or 4 links usually from full-traction. I didn't see one at the Mint 400 this year running a beam or ttb setup. Also those would be against the rules about extending the wheelbase in most classes.
