    38.5" tires and no truss...IMO, cruiser axle housings are sufficiently strong unless you are the type that enjoys jumping. (I don't! lol)

    IF you do truss, make a custom one that goes over the housing, and worry mainly about the long side. Anything under the axle kills that great clearance you add with the SOA.
