    you can put chromoly shafts in them. but buy that time, you are close to upgrading to a D60. fill out your profile and tell us what size tires you are running (or plan on running) and you will get better opinions from other people.

    right now i am running 33 12.50 and i will be running 35's when these tires have been worn out. i am not a hardcore wheeler but i do enjoy it, and am not into thrashing my truck just having fun.

    OH yeah one more question i got off work tonight went and got some gas and noticed that i was leaking coolant so when i got home i checked it out i think it is the water pump but couldnt tell it was coming from above my crossmember. my question is can a water pump off a 327 work on a samll block 400? /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif
