hell yea! i designed, made patterns, checked, redid, etc for about a month. i made about 1/8" clearance everywhere. its TIGHT. perfect fit. i think the extra time spent will pay off. im a bit of a perfectionist/accuracy freak lol. i garantee you, you wont find a straighter, more square tuber out there.

New Bright Avalanche









There's also a nice Hummer body as well









Also, if you are going to use Clod axles, I found a VERY Cheap way to extend the wheel base by 1.5".
I got all this hardware from Home Depot. There is some trimming required of the screw heads inside the hubs and drilling out the wheels to mount the new screws but not hard to do.
