My aunt's brother in law came to visit yesterday. He just bought a new 2002 Mazda 4wd crew cab truck. When he entered my driveway he saw my work in progress Blazer with a 14bolt and 36x16.50x16.5 Dick Cepek Radial FC tires and the stock 10 bolt front with 29" tires (I have a Dana 60 waiting on my yard). The 14 bolt is very noticeable since the Blazer is "bending over". At first he was shocked due to the huge tires compared to his wimpy 31x10.50 Wranlger AT/S tires, but then he proceeded to tell me how I was just wasting my time and money since I didn't gain any clearance at the rear dif and that his Mazda truck would probably go just about everywhere I would go. We proceeded to measure and effectively, I had only about 1" more clearance than his tiny dif with smaller tires. My only point at that time was that my dif wouldn't get destroyed if I hit a rock and that I could shave about 1" more inch off. I forgot to tell him that I'll be installing a Detroit locker soon. What else could I have said to convince hime that my Blazer is WAY more capable than his shiny new truck? /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gifAnd that there is no way he can follow me?
