    A friend stopped by today to drop off some fender flares, and he told me about someone that was supposedly selling a 12" lift kit, and (4) 44" Boggers mounted and balanced on Weld Wheels. The guy told him he'd sell the wheels, tires and lift, all for $1,000. /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif

    I still have to see this stuff to believe it...but if it's true...I may have to get excited and start selling a bunch of my stuff. I dont think I should pass this up if it's for real.

    That's a good deal...

    Just realize that, to be able to use it all, you will end up spending a bit more than the 1000 bucks. You'll still need new driveshafts etc.

    It's still a helluva deal though.
     
  4. It dose sound like one heck of a deal, if it's all it's cracked up to be and if your into that kind of stiff lift. It'll be great for the mud but not so hot on the rocks and trails, at least thats my opinion and you know how that gose (every body has one)

    Just tires and rims are worth that much.

    I'm curious to look at everything. Appearently, this guy had like $50,000 or more into this truck. Somehow, he nose dived and rolled it I think he said. It broke the front Dana 60 housing, or knuckle. The friend that told me about it just wants to buy the big block that was in it, and the axles, even if the 60 was broken. If this was a $50,000 truck, I wonder why he's selling stuff so cheap. I guess he's just discouraged and wants to get rid of it. It'd be cool if it truly was $1000 for the tires, wheels and lift. Usually, when some people around here shoot out a price, and I show interest, then they're not too sure if they want to turn loose of the parts for the stated amount. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    He's got to be lying if he said that the 44'' boggers are balanced! /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
