    well you have 53" tires. congratulations!

    your 1 ton axles will break if you wheel this. :blush: sorry, but they will. so that leaves rockwells or unimog axles.

    rockwells are top loaders, which need about 10" of lift to clear. pretty tough, not much money. i heard...

    unimogs add about 4-6" of lift because they're portals. they are the better axle IMO. unimogs also come with lockers built right in, rockies don't. :frown1:

    are the blocks in both axles of just the rear? if they're in the front, get those out of there right away. very dangerous. if they're in the back, then take em out and do a shacle flip. this will give about 4" of lift without the spring wrap. or at least way less.

    53's sound sweet, post some pics when you get them on. :cool1:

    The 3inch block are a body lift, sorry about the confusion. I'm still trying to find a 20in 8 lug rim that will work and some that aren't chrome. Thanks

    My brother had his 20" 8 luggers built by Stockton wheel... they were pretty expensive... I think from Stazworks you can get 20" double beadlocks for cheaper than he paid for his thru Stockton...

    www.USA6X6.com has 20 inch rims for a reasonable price, if the stock 1-ton axles s*** the bed I would definatly go with some unimog 406's or 416's.
