    Sawzall has already been used, about 3 inches off all the way around and tapered ends and cut the tang off the front.

    Lift is in the garage. 6" Front 7" Rear with ORD flip. It may even end up with more than that since the springs are 34 years old its possible they may have settled just a tad. Just had to wait for the rims and tires for the axle swap.

    I just rolled the tires in front of the wimpy 31's to see how they would look.

    Thanks Burt. I put a couple pics in another post. Hopefully I am a couple weeks out on the swap.

    A big thanks to "old yeller", who sold me the rims and tires. Great guy to deal with and everything was just as he said it would be. Good price too. /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif

    Guess I could tell ya they are 37 X 12.50 X 17's BFG Krawler TA's on Pro Comp Extreme Alloy 1059 rims.

    I figured I would just park it at the mall and put the new tires in front of the ones that are on it so it would look cool. /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif
