    thats right yall, I felt like a looser today flexing with my poorly lubricated beast... but I guess its the limits of what a stocker will do, because I firmly planted the bumpstops :laugh: ... this is embarrasing, but here it is guys..

    Well....it's higher than the curbs at the mall. :D

    James, get that set of half worn gumbos (the ones you told be about for like $50 for the set), stuff 'em on your rims, and trim like hell, you won't regret it.

    I called the guy the other day. I think he would definitely sell them... but they're 36.5's............ that means lift and gears............ that means $$.......A strong motor and some 33's would be nice.

    Now if I could hack the fenders ALOT and put a 3" B**y lift on, then maybe I could run those 36's... that would be a budget build... hmmm.......... so many options..

    I bet add-a-leafs, a zero rate up front, and some good fender trimming would clear 'em. gears are another story but I bet it'd take less than $100 in suspension parts. You stated your truck is primarily for mud so I think it'd work. I say try it :p:

    yeah, just trim and add AALs and maybe a zero rate up front like mentioned...$40 for the zero rate and like 110 for front and rear AALs...then new shocks (i got by with super duty rear shocks in the rear of mine and swapped the rears to the front). Thats about $200 for suspension. Then trim up what rubs and run it. i see its a 3/4 ton so it should be geared 3.73s or 4.11s which should turn those 36.5s ok if you were to get them. Look at it like this, a newer set of 33s will likely cost more than 250$ like what you would spend on the 36.5s...and at the end of the day they still would be 33s.

    trim them up like I did and add zero rates and you should be good. The 4" I did to clear 38.5's was overkill. I was suprised how well they fit with no lift.
