    I have always wanted 44 in boggers on a truck but I only want to go with a 6 in lift on the burb. All of the charts say 38.5 is the largest tire I can go with. My question is not will it fit but how CAN I fit the 44s under the burb. Hacking away the fenders is fine with me. As long as I keep it street legal.

    Another question.

    What size rim would I need? I only have 16x8 right now. Would rather stick with 16 with plans for a D60.

    This is a 90 with a 6.2 diesel, 700R4 and 241 t-case. The mods so far are:

    D60; 5.13 gears, lock rite, 35 spline outer, warn prem hubs, outers completely rebuilt less than 2k miles ago
    Steering; ORU crossover, ORD bolt in brace
    front susp; 4" lift (brand unkown, was installed at purchase time)
    39.5 Iroks
    NP241; SYE, 1410 rear yoke, clocked up
    Brake lines; Black widow performance lines front and rear
    14FF; waiting to regear to match front(have parts, not funds), welded spiders(making a metal softball for this thing)
    Rear susp; 4" ORD shackle flip(need 1" zero rate and longer shackles
    Front bumper; Blazen Offroad tubular
    Winch; Mile Marker 12000ES
    Fenders; Fronts trimmed by me, rears trimmed by PO, soon to be re-done

    Things to do:

    Get 1410 Rear Driveshaft. Thinking of going 1410 in the front also without a CV. Get rear end regeared. Make a rear bumper. Fix t-case leak. Change all fluids.

    Here you go guys. Any other Qs, send 'em.

    ya, I am hoping it works out. I didn't think teh 4.56s I had would be low enough with the 39.5s. We will see in a couple months.
