Got to measuring my front and rear track widths today, and have a question: With the ITP front rims and 22" RAZR's, it's 47 1/4" wide up front, and with the 22" rear RAZR's it measures 46 1/2" wide in the back. Isn't the rear track supposed to be slightly wider than the front? Could this adversely affect the handling?

Red-N-BlackXX is correct. If the rear is wider then the front, it can lead to the quad pushing in the corners. Well, I guess in the case of the 700XX, it can lead to the quad pushing even more then it already does.:tup:

Well sounds like I'll leave the rear width alone then, thanks.

As for the truck, I just got the '03 Dak back in November and so far I love it. I had a '97 Blazer for almost 10 years previously. That Blazer gave me a fair share of problems, and when the tranny was on its way out for the second time I decided to get out of it. So far the Dak has been reliable, did have to replace the upper ball joints and a couple emissions hoses. The 4.7 is a beast, but is thirsty for gas.

I do agree, I think your difference in width is good. I run my 450R's about 1" wider in the front.

My only complaint about my 03 Dakota is it does suck down some gas, I have the 5.9 though, so it is really thirsty. My ball joints were done under recall and I just replaced my fuel pump this last Friday. Fuel pump itself was fine, but there is a check valve in it that keeps the fuel in the fuel rail at the engine. The check valve failed, so I would have to re-prime the system before I could start it, gets old having to turn the key on and off five or six times whenever I got in it. (Especially when I have been doing that for almost a year.) Fuel pump was pretty easy to change actually, buddy and I did it in about three hours, and that included some break time. Other then that I have just had normal maintainence stuff to do, it really has been a good truck.

There's abit of leway on the front to back on the 700xx. You get simialar numbers on front to back , you'll not have a problem. I ran 44" front and 50" rear for last season and it did great. This season I am running Ed's + 1 1/4" a arms which should bring it to around 47" ish on the front. I would rather hit a tree with the rear than the front. IMO.
Heres is a pic.
