    Tired of having your tire size limited by your vehicle's body or frame? Tired of flipping over during sharp cornering? Can't quite span that crevice?
    Well, take a look at this set of axles!

    With these, you will no longer be held back by such silly things as clearance issues. Go wild with your tire sizes!

    What's that? You recently bought 100-inch tires, but you can't fit them on your vehicle? Well, now you can!

    Just look at that clearance! The sky is the limit on your tire size, now!


    You don't want to be like this guy, do you?

    Then get these axles today, and quit rubbing your frame with your tires!

    And just when you thought life couldn't get any better, life gives you wider axels for the D-series!

    What's that? You say that the independent front suspension is not an axle?
    I say, who cares?

    Just look at that amazing beast!





    Current axles / suspensions available:
    Hopper:
    • Live axle suspensions
    D-series:
    • Front:
      • Off-Road Independent Suspension
    • Rear:
      • Standard Live Axle suspension
      • 3-Link Live Axle suspension (No more axle wrapping with larger tires!)
    I plan on adding wide axles to all of the off-road vehicles, but for now, it's just the Hopper and the D-series.

    Here is the link to the repository:

    D-Series rear axle wants to explode? it seems to be fine with the D-Series regular cab short bed but likes to act unstable when on a crew cab short bed with the 100inch tires with offroad leaf springs and shocks.

    Thank you. I haven't tested the other cab configurations other than the default yet. I just assumed they would work the same.

    Was it this configuration?

    Also, I updated the mod late last night to address the exploding rims.

    That is actually the outdated version. The newest approved version (1.1) has the brake rotors corrected and fixed the wheels blowing off. After it's approved, version 1.2 will include the wide version of the three link suspension that will resist the axle wrap that destroys the driveshaft.

    The U bolts let loose under hard acceleration and the rear solid axle moves forward . Any chance you can add a Wide Brake option for each brake selection i.e. Wide Brake Race Disk Brakes, Wide Brake Offroad Disc Brake etc. The current version is extremely ineffective.
    Awesome mod that brings alot of tuning options.

    I am investigating why the axle still wraps around. It is strange because the only beams that were changed were those for the wheels and hubs.

    The brakes will be easy enough to do. The current update waiting for approval adds the 3 link which is slightly more resistant to the wrapping problem. Once that's been approved, I will start on the brakes.

    No More Axle Wrap!! The rear brake option disappears after being selected leaving no brakes for the 3 link offroad rear suspension on the D Series. Other than that, ITS FRICKIN SWEET!

    Noice!

    The independent rear might be a ways off, but I really want to get it on there.

    Need to make a 3 link front axle for the d series. You should make dana 60s for the d series that would be cool that's only if you can.

    3 link front is definitely in the works. I just need to figure the axle wrap before I tackle another axle.

    The back axles keeps getting broken right after I respawn it. It also happens when I first select the wider axle configurations.

    I mean on the hopper, didn't tested it on D-series.

    Do you know which version of the mod you are using? This was an issue with the first version I made.

    The latest version?
    --- Post updated ---
    It's the version Alpha v0.20.2. (It's what my BeamNG says on the top right corner of the screen in the menu.)
    And I can't find the D-series wide axles, even I got the name correct.

    Can you post a picture of what you show in your front suspension menu?
