    I've seen those tires at www.safarigard.com how much are they going to cost you? I can't remember, does Boyce sell them also?

    i'm gettin them at a big truck tire store for about 475 a piece bran spankin new. but they should last forever since they usually transport a truck that weighs about 25000 pounds and mine weighs about 6 and there regrovable and not to mention there RADIAL 49 inch tires hopefully i'll still be able to drive that sucker on the street with the overdrive in the 700r4. but only time will tell!

    no i'm not going to narrow my axles id rather put money in other things that are more important i new it was going to be wide so i'll deal with it. i found some bigger brakes at www.usa6x6.com that use alot bigger brakes than chuckstrucks so i'll run those front and rear. right now i'll going to get them mocked in with my wheels and tires(can't wait till they get here i'll post again when they do) i'll set the bumpstops and cut for the tires. from there i'll weld in my 2link,wishbones,shocks, and airbags.
