DSE Minitubs & Fuel Tank question

Is anyone running TCI's torque arm rear with minitubs? And what have you done for fuel tank? Narrowed?Stock? I want to run my 3"exhaust all the way out behind the rear tire, and right now it looks like the stock width fuel tank is not an option.Any input would be great before I drop coin on DSE's carbed minitub tank.

I think the main reason for the narrowed tank is for when someone moves their leafsprings in. The way I understand it, with a 4 link or torque arm setup the narrowed tank is not needed.

It will be a real challenge to get pipes over the axle that clear through your suspension range.

you can run a full width tank, but will have to notch the corners for exhaust clearance.
