    the truck is getting lifted 6" with either TC or BDS front springs shackle flip in rear and 2" block till i buy 2" rear springs.


    i want to do 35/36" swamper radials/SSR's

    what is the proper backspacing. to get the least rubbing. /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif

    will a 15" wheel fit on the dana44 front and 14boltff rear? /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif
    if they dont i was looking at

    16.5x9.75 or 16x10 wheels.

    not sure which either one is gonna be a chrome or black steel wheel.

    Welcome.
    A 15 x10 wheel with about 4" of backspacing will be good to go.
    Yes the wheel will fit on the rear no sweat. You will have to /forums/images/graemlins/grind.gif the front calipers a bit to clear 15" wheels though.
    No big deal.
    If ya do a search there is shloads of info on that.
    I got my wheels from 4wheel parts for $41 each.

    same procedure as grinding ona dana 60?

    ive not ehard of grinding on the dand44 so tahts why i asked.

    4" back spacing okay sounds good 15" makes tires chosie a bit more broad.
