    It was a 99+ F150 xcab and i wish i had pics, but it had a HP D44 front w/ coils/radius arms and a stock rear 1/2 ton axle. it had some balled 44 TSL's on it and it had a decent amount of mud on it. what the hell is this guy thinking??? 44's on 1/2 ton running gear, and he wheels it???? hmmmm.....makes me wanna run 44's on 3/4 ton running gear you know. it did look badass though. maybe i can pull off 42's.

    very true....all we have down here is a little mud, and that's mostly it. D60's are just so damn expensive/hard to find.

    mud is a lot easier on axles then rocks. especially if you have an auto trans. at least the guy is wheeling it. too many people build them and never get them dirty. or think they have to have 1 tons before they can hit the dirt.

    very very truck....no rocks in FL for sure man....haha, with a 14bolt rear and a detroit, even with an open front, i don't think it would be that bad. i would have to be careful with the skinny pedal...but this truck today really made me think. i may just up and do it!!!!! you never know.

    Crap. I was hoping it would have been a '73-'79 year of truck. I'd ask for pics if it was.
