    Other than cutting the legs off no.lots of figuring trying to keep the wheel stance reasonable and still being able to incorporate the stand and have it come out the correct height....in comes drop axles....I offset the front spindles so I could get a little more turn before the tires rub the frame....I'm prolly gonna put steering stops in it later....the lone star has been up on 2 wheels before when going downhill around a corner and getting the tire caught in the frame:eek:
