    i was wondering who has a first gen w/ 44's, 42's, 40's, 39.5's and if you have any pictures of your trucks. What kind of lift did you use and what modifications were made(driveshaft, t-case lowering etc.)Thanks for any info.

    Hey 1 FN HI K5, how's that 44 living on top of those big tires? Did you beef it up?

    I have a first gen truck with 39.5 Swampers. I have about 8" of suspension lift and cut fenders. Transfer case is dropped with a piece of 1" plate on each side. My driveshafts are lengthened of course.

    Mine used to have 44"s. Mine was created from a newer (76) frame so the lift wasnt hard. But it has grown since then. You can see tons of pics of it on my website.
