Anyone stretch their 90 wheel base?

How far can you reasonably stretch the D90 wheel base? Extended A-bar and adj. rear links gets you what?

You can add to the chassis behind the seatbox. Easier to go the other way though.

You can probably make it 95" but might rub the eyebrows.

Have you seen Lane's build post: http://www.defendersource.com/forum/...ad.php?t=21283

Might be some more pics and info on Pirate: http://pirate4x4.com/forum/showthread.php?t=811933

I don't know what his final wheelbase was but might have been close to 100" when all said and done.

There's a guy in the Berzerkly, CA area that used a D1 chassis to make himself a D100. Had to do some rear bucket extension work though. He's also a HUGE bio-diesel fan.
