    I've got 42's on 4" lift. Shackle flipped with 63's out back, and a 56" spring swap up front. You'll get it to fit, you ust have to trim your fenders, and I highly recommend relocating your front axle forward to get your tires off the firewall. That is, if you are able to (crossover is usually nessesary)

    I'm not sure how to add a picture to this post, but I'm running 44s with 8" and plans are in the works more major mods to make 49s work with the same height.

    Are your pics on the net somewhere? If not you can upload them here in the "Member's Rides" section.

    (go there and log in just like the forums and look for "upload" towards the top right /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif )

    They should fit in the back. The front might hit the radiator support and the firewall, then when you turn they will hit the steering box and whatever fender you have left. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    a ck5 member (55willy) made the rear shock x-member for me. Send him a pm, he might be able to hook you up.

    [/ QUOTE ]

    rancho 4" springs + ORD zero rates. In the near future I'll have 52" springs up there... the ranchos are way to stiff for my liking.
