    Well, after almost 2 years of crusing around on some wimpy "little" 37"ers on a 16.5" rim (w/ no bead) I finally get to step up to the big boys. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif the only thing i had to do was relocate my battery. A special thanks to DBALZER (Nash) for hookin me up w/these badboys (let me know when you are gonna sell the 44's cause im right behind ya /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif j/k)

    Thats right-----15/42/15 TSL's on a 15x10" rim with Rockstomper beadlocks (which makes the rim about 15x11.5 or so.)

    Very cool, I like the front fender cut, do you have another shot in the sunlight like the first pic? If I did that I think I could cut out the damage on both my fenders. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    It's behind the seat for now, we couldn't finda long enough battery cable (did it on sunday) to put it in the back, but that is where it will eventually go.

    Sweet, did you ditch the inner fender also, I would think that you would have to?

    I think you will also need to cut the core support to clear, I did. Do you hit the fire wall? Any mods back there?

    <Edit> BTW, how much lift you got? Looks like allot more than mine, but I thought you were at 4"? /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    ditched the inner--probably gonna make one if i can find someone w/ a brake (to bend some aluminum) and if time permits.

    Russ--I have a 6" lift-- i would really like to go lower but ill have a lot more problems w/ the crossover (hitting the crossmember, and firewall. and i dont have the funds to remedy these problems...

    I do have the option to get a free blazer frame and "fix" all the problem spots before I start wheelin hard. but i still need to get a decent TC.

    right now i feel i can wheel in 85% of the places i want to go, but i feel i have a real weak link in my drivline (mainly the TC and driveshafts.)

    Russ--is the 1ton fram back the the same as a 1/2---cause i really like that idea for the battery.

    Nope, it won't fit like that in anything but a 1 ton frame. On the K30 frame, it fits like it was made to go there. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif
