Default Trimming Rails?

So, if I install a anti-stab kit (such as SLP's) and replace the limiter strap cross shaft, can I trim the rail tips back quite aways and not re-install the black plastic tips?
If I can get away with out having to remove the suspension I'd be really stoked!

Thanks!

Pulling the suspension is SUPER EASY.

Dont try to do this with the skid in the sled.

The ONLY reason to trim the rails is if you are running Combo drivers (Avid, Wahl).

Are you running combo style drivers?

What is your reason for trimming the rails back?

Yup, I've got Avid 8 tooth 3.0 extro's. Done a lot of work to the sled lately to fit my new 174x3 didn't feel like dropping the susp to add the anti stab. Plus the Anti Stab kit looks like it can be installed easily with the skid in.. Can I leave the black caps off the front of the rails with out any issues

You must have a big skid setback as the rails would have to have been trimmed to fit the Avids.....

Post up some pix of that bad boy...

I couldnt imagine putting a anti stab set of rollers in while strill in the chassis. I have done 3 of them. Pull it would be my recomendation for what is is worth. Also how the heck did you get the front bolts in without trimming the tips? I put the plastic tips back on the 3 I did.

I've set the skid back 2" and down .75 Yes, I have trimmed the rails 1" already and with the skid fully extended the tips hit the extros, looks like I'll need another .500" just to clear! Okay, so it looks like I'll need to pull the skid arrrgggh! Has anybody trimmed the rails back to the cross shaft and left the black caps off? Maybe 45 degreed the bottom corner of the rail?????

I'll try to post some pics of the Dragon Slayer!!!

I'm pretty sure you'll be pulling the skid when you put the new 174 in.....or am I missing something here? Takes 10 minutes to pull the skid.
