Default Who all makes TLT wheel wideners?

I'm gonna get started on my TLT and was gonna do the widening first.

Ive looked around a bit and so far all I'm seeing are the thundertech wideners and the Inet wideners. The Inet wideners are out of stock, and I didnt really like the thundertech ones cause theyre quite expensive to just be plastic ($45 for the set!), the inet ones are the same price and are aluminum.

Next option would be to do what RCCA did and use TG-10 axles with wide hex's and wild dagger rims. But I cant find the TG-10 axles in stock anywhere [:@]

Anyways, does anyone know any otehr companies that make wheel wideners for the TLT, or at least a place that has the TG-10 rear axles in stock?

i would wait for the inets cheaper stronger and can run most of the 2.2 truck rims

Yeah I think I'm just gonna wait for them. Their site says theyll be in at the end of june so they should be back in stock pretty soon.

I also found some Tobee Craft wideners, but I didnt like them.

In the meantime, Im gonna buy this Tobee craft long wheelbase kit I saw. Its supposed to make it 60mm longer, which is like 2 1/2 inches.

hmm.. is it good to have a wider stance on a truck? I like the stock width.. because there isnt much that it will get stuck / hung up on... post pics when you get them...

Dont know if its good for crawling (its good for stability though), but Im just wanting it a bit wider cause I'm gonna make it longer and run 2.2 wheels/tires (proline moabs are what im planning on, but I dont think theyre in stock anywhere yet).

I dont think you can run the bigger tires without widening it, they'd hit on the links when you turned.
