stretch kit ?'s
Can some jeepers help me out with this question.
I understand stretch kits stretch your wheel base how ever many inchs you want it to be:whistling:. So you wont flop as easy. But i have no clue what it supposed to help with maybe center of gravity like i said guys/gals i have no clue. What it actully does. Im wanting to get one some day but i think it s somthing i should know about before i get one on my rig.So thanks in advance.

Why Stretch?

Does not help with "flopping". That is taken care of with full width axles, less backspacing on the wheels, etc. (wider stance).

WB stretch helps when getting vertical, like big waterfalls. Also helps ride quality on the road too.

A stock WB TJ is 93.6". Going out 10" in the rear makes a LOT more climbs possible and comfortable.
