    [censored] wish i woulda known that when i ordered my body lift and 0 rates today lol, damnit,
    Truck is coming along slowly but surely.... Doing the suspension, cuz its kinda cheap, and saving money for the front end, then want to change drivelines to one ton, then want to get a winch, then bumpers, the list goes on forever, but i hope to be wheeling with my Different suspension (not new juss different) and my new gears and lockers, and x over steering in about a month, give or take, Im sick of not wheeling so ive kinda put 63" springs on hold, jsut so i can get my ass out to the trails and use my truck instead of always wrenching on it

    Yup, C=2(pi)R => C=2R(pi) => C=D(pi) => C/(pi)=D
    (pi)=3.14159

    Sorry, that looks a little crazier than it does in my head... here you go:

    To get circumference, you take the diameter times the constant pi...which is 3.14159.
    So, in order to get diameter, divide the circumference by 3.14159.
    There, hope that's better.
