    Heres the deal my stuck up neighbor just put 38's on his ol Ford. I can't fathom the fact that his ride is taller. So fat 39 M/T's w/15x14 in rims are going on my blazer. 8in Skyjacker w/ 2or3in body should be plenty to oust his rig. My 91 blazer runs 10 bolt's. It's strictly a road toad till i upgrade to a 44dana/60dana axles. Will the 10 bolts hold under the stress of 39's for about a year with pampered grama style driving? It takes me stricly to and from work which is 12 miles a week with an occasional trip to town 8 miles one way. Also can anybody tell me where I can purchase a kit to convert my yoke from a slip to a fixed. I run a 4 spd man. w/ an NP241. Any assistance with this ego trip is greatly appreciated Thanks..............

    One of my hunting buddies here has a Ph**d that is running 39's with D60/44, and I'm the one he calls to come to his rescue (which is a lot). I'm running 33's with corporate 12/10 bolts and 4.10 gears. Even had to go out in the middle of a pasture where we hunt and haul 2 deer for him, it takes his truck about the size of this pasture to get it turned around. Told him he was handicapping the Ph**d when he put the tool box in the bed and he wouldn't be able to tow or haul anything (typical Chevy - blue oval rivalry). Any way about the only problem you may encounter is ball joint wear and the check the frame where the steering box bolts up to and maybe go ahead and reinforce that area. The bigger tires will put added stress on that area. B1 Bomber, aka Bone, HAWK (Holiday and Weekend Killer), SLUT (Strategic Low Utilization Trainer), Been working the Bone myself since '85.

    your power will suffer, unless you re-gear. my 89 is getting by on 35's, i don't think i could go bigger and still hold fourth gear.
