    Looks like a show-truck, probably never takes it wheeling.

    Off-Road Mag is not offroad. They are all show trucks. I think they should just rename the mag to Wanna be offroad, or My Sh!ts gonna break if I actually go wheeling.

    yea but 4.56's and 44's is still HIGH
    and a 4.8 even with exhaust and a chip isent that strong its a good motor for like a 2wd half ton rcsb looking for MPG but still... I bet that thing has a hard time turning the tires on dirt...

    Why do all of those "show" trucks have at least 3 craptastic items from the Lund catalog stuck to them?

    YOu are probably right.

    He didn't build the truck to wheel, he built it to look good....and it's going a damn good job too.

    Why would he want the extra weight of a 14BFF when he doesn't need the strength? You guys mentioned something about the 4.8 under the hood...he seems pretty smart to try and keep it as light as possible to help the little motor out. A big heavy rear end wouldn't help at all and is not needed anyway.

    Some people build trucks to go over rocks, some to go through mud, and some to look really good. Each type needs and doesn't need certain things.

    :)

    Thats uncalled for! :mad: Just because someone has a different interest than you doesn't mean someone else footed the bill. If you know this guy personally and know this as a fact, my apologies.

    a simple known fact...


    those tires are adding some serious stress in alot of places,

    the axel its self, along with the brakes, if you can afford to lift it and make it large and look good, you should also make it strong and reliable,

    in my opinion the guy cheaped out, or simply does not know any better

    6" Blocks 1/2 Ton Axels W/ 14" Wides Wheels With heavy 44 Boggers All He Needs Now Is A 4" Body Lift And His Death Contraption Will Be Complete. If Your Going To Build A Show Truck More Power To You But At Least Make It Safe And Reliable For An Everyday Driver. Unles That Truck Is A Trailer Queen, I Wouldn't Want To Stop Short In Front Of Him On The High Way Im Not To Sure He Could Slam On The Brakes Doing 55 Ans Stop

    4.8s are stronger than you guys give them credit. My buddy had one in a rental they gave him while his 5.3 1500 was in the body shop. It was very impressive for the size of the motor.

    as far as needing and not needing certain things an 10B axle is not meant and never will be meant for 300+ lb tires
