    Just swapped my 10 bolt's w/ 3.73 & 31's (actually measured 29.5"). To a 14 bolt FF & D 44 w/ 4.56's & 33's (actually measure 32.5"). I gained 2" in the rear 1.5" in front, measured at top center of wheel opening. Gained 1.5" ground clearance at front diff. & no gain or loss at rear diff. Can't wait to try it out.

    Ummmm, well, with a sawzall they fit nice. The rears stuff very well, but the front required some "trimming" in order to get the feling room I required. By the wa Steve, my case is being installed as we speak WOOOHOOOOO!!!!!!!

    A Detroit, is in the work's. I just have to get the Warden (a.k.a. wife) to approve it. lol. Just needing a little more power to help my 305. Those 3.73's just didn't cut it.

    That's great Ed!!! Now why don't you head on up here for the run that RB and I are doing? It's posted on the Blazin Trails board. After seeing what your 31's mixed with your driving abilities let's see some 38's on there!
