    You dont need those Being reliable is a major goal for mine. I like to hit the back wood trails that don't see much use. So The mods I'd recomened would be: 3/4 Ton axles (cheaper then 1 Ton, but 1 Ton is better) and either a 4" or 6" suspension lift, and 33" to 36" tires. Now I don't know how you feel about trimming fenders, so I'll leave that one alone. That'll get ya out in the woods.

    lets see, I wanna go with some 35x15.50 TSL-Xs i just wanted to do 6" sup but friend said i would have to get my driveshafts extended and [censored] and i dont wanna deal with all that so i figure on going 4" sup and 2" body so i wont have to face the sawzall, plan on bumpin the 350 up to a 396 getting 14bolt FF in rear and keeping the D44 up front, gutting interior do complete makeover on that, and I dont like much the seats that are currently in it so thinking about some racing bucket seats with a 5point harness, and a new paint job is in need cause this army looking green with black top to a nice blue with a nicer looking black top

    well thats what im hoping for as a final product, lets see how long it takes me. /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif
