    Ok, I need to see if its just me or not. I redid my front suspension and I ended up with the front axle moved forward 2" and about 3/4" more lift than before. Here is the picture. Those are BFG 35x12.5 MT's with around 4" of lift.

    Doesn't look to bad, but 36's or 37's would make it look all the better /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Mtblazer, I got some hybrid-erific front spring in there. Look for a write up in the coming weeks.

    The rear axle isnt the same anymore, I broke it good. I had to but a new housing in. I also regeared them too. Only thing original in the rear is the detroit, disc brake brackets and one shaft.

    Your tires arn't too small...you just have too much lift.

    I just got spanked on newyears by an old ranger with no lift on 29" A/T's. He got up a hill that I couldn't... /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif

    I am starting to think the low CG is the way to go. I'm trying to think of ways to lower my truck a few inches /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif
