Just means its 100x cooler than a Narrow Track Chero or Waggy

naw really it has larger fender flares front and rear, to make room for the slightly wider axles under it. WT's are generally a bit more preferable than narrow tracks, but not crazily so.

Yeah pics, vin number for decoding, options, what problems it has, post em up.

The Edge... there is no honest way to explain it because the only people who really know where it is are the ones who have gone over.

well I think wide track are 6" wider then your standard wag and being a wide track you can lift it higher then a Narrow Track.
Your W/T should have 31" tires on it now where my N/T has a 4" lift and 31" tires

Do you know what drivetrane you have yet ??? TH400 with a quardtrack
