I was thinking on doing the same thing with the axle flip. I have not done it yet. For my 1993, the one problem with going to a bigger tire is the lack of clearance on the rear of the tire. The trailer frame cross member which boxes out the wheel well area just behind the door side tire, is really close. Maybe two inches at best. Do you have the same clearance issue? Looks really nice and I like the new trunk lid. Regards to the axle flip:, I have been assuming I have a straight axle. Being that there are no brakes, I was going to just do a literal flip of the axle. After having the axle off....do you think it was straight or do you think there was a camber in it? What kind of welder do you have?
