    Yeah, they'll fit. I think you might have a slight issue with some body contact though, definitely when you flex it out!

    Re: 7\" of lift Can I fit these tires?

    Or how about fitting a turbo under the hood that's physically larger than a small block chev. How about a nitrogen shock that's 33" in diameter, 12' tall and has 2' of travel? Full hydro steering with a 50" stroke cylinder? If you want a set of those tires, I'll see what I can do. They change them every 8 months on the nose and use the take offs to build road barriers and stuff. They're 84,000 grand a shot new, but I think I can get you four for about a thousand bucks. Shipping becomes an issue, since they're 13' tall, 4' wide and weigh 25 tons each. Some of the gouges go over 12" deep, but grooving them shouldn't be too much of a pain (if you have a jackhammer with a headed chisel) How about a set of rims? They run beadlocked inner/outers... Put power to the ground? Whenever they take off the dump box for whatever, they spin some pretty wicked dougnuts. How about spinning up an MTU 4000, all turbos at max boost (3200 horsies) and dumping the resistor bank? 4 tires roasting! Exhaust? Dual 36" pipes!

    Re: 7\" of lift Can I fit these tires?

    My old man took those pictures of that flattened ford. Happens more than you'd think really...

    It's not often that these trucks get stuck, but they do have a tow truck for them. I've seen a D-11 bust both the axles (before the planetaries) pulling one of these out of the ditch. I've also seen these things rolled. The usually use a series of D-11's or Komatsu 575's (or whichever has the offset cab) with winches to pull them back over. If they ever get stuck badly enough, they just dig them out with an RH200, since it has an 80 ton bucket. The O&K RH200 is mobile since it's diesel/hydraulic and they have trailers big enough for it to drive long distances (1000 ton off road trailer/trucks)
