    I don't know why, but the more I see 44" boggers, the more I want some:D

    Just thinking out loud, I'll have to use the 38.5" boggers for now......

    In utah, the lift laws require that the frame be no higher than 26" off the ground :rolleyes:. I am already there with 35" tires and 4" of suspension lift :mad:. I really wanted to go with some 39.5's or something, but I am going to have to settle for 37's with the one ton's sitting on my porch--and even at that, I will be a couple inches too tall.

    44's...? yeah, still dreaming.

    Larry_in_TX has 39.5s on his '72 Jimmy, maybe you could get an idea of what they may look like. & Lucas has a sweet narrowed one on 42s. but 44s, i guess i'm going to have to be the first one to run the setup. :D

    I am wanting to do the same thing. I have 44" Boggers, Dana 60 front, and Corp 14 bolt I want to swap under my 72 blazer. The lift spings are from a 81 chevy 1 ton also. My delima is: Do you think it would be best to try and adapt everything to the 72 frame or just put the 72 body on a second gen. frame?
