What year are you talking about?

2012 SuperGlide has 29° rake.
2012 WideGlide has 34° rake.

The rake difference is in the frame neck, not the triple trees. Wide Glide forks on a Super Glide = Super Glide rake.

Can't go wrong with either...just stand back take a look and be honest with how each one hits you...for me it's wide glide (chopperlike) all the way,but that's me.I believe the WG's have been harley's biggest and best sellers for awhile now...but if you are looking at the current models,and want the "Real" SG or WG then find a nice older used one and don't settle for the (IMHO) the pussy-fied version.
But get what moves you...literally!

The owner of our local independent shop has a wide glide front end on his 2008 Dyna Super Glide. From what I remember, it is pretty much just simple swap out. You have to make some front brake mods for the dual caliper wide glide front end, but nothing major.
