    I was wondering if anyone can throw some pics of there rigs:k5: on 44s or 42s with somthing to refernce height?? I am trying to determin if I can make It still street legal I was going to just build for 38s for simplicity and legalitys. then decided Its my damn truck and the man cant hold me down and I am going to build this thing as big as I can "legally" ,because its still going to be a daily driver (even if it makes to 44s)

    Here is a bad ass show rig sitting on 46s. Only had 3/4 ton axles, but damn it was impressive.

    This guy was probably around 5'10".

    I cant tell if those are VA plates but I think he's part of the same crew that roll into the mud bogs here in VA every month...those guys dont mess around..they come with some serious rigs..cept the Chevy with the 10bf. Last time I saw it he was runnin 44's and I tell yuo what, that thing will sh!t n git!!! He was a gas staion about 3 miles from the bog and just lit them up pullin out, I wanted to turn around and go home after that LOL.

    oh yeah that thing was a piece of junk.

    As for that 6" lift and 44s, I'd do it too but I'd use 1 tons not 10 bolts ;).

    Thats what I was looking for now I know what i can get away with
    I can run the setup I was planning
    52"s in front with zero rates should be around 5"s lift with good ride
    56"s in rear with S- flip and 3" blocks should be around 7"s with good ride
    and bushwacker cut outs and 3'' bodylift that should keep me legal and still can wheel like hell to
    How does that sound any flaws in my plan to take over the world ??

    Everything sounds good except the bushwacker cut outs. I think you may have to trim more than that.

    I guess you plan on running x-over steering?

    No VA.

    ****in' retard.... And you know someone was looking at that For Sale sign thinking, "Damn, this is a SWEET truck!"



    :dunno:


    But that Blaze on 6" and 44's....!!!!! Now THAT'S how ya do it! Minimal, usable lift with big meats on stout drivetrain parts....kinda makes me feel all funny, like when we used to climb the rope in gym class. *shudder* Uh, I need a moment - I'll be in the bathroom.
