    In my opinion what you should do is ship me your 14ff w/4:56's and i will ship you my 14ff w/ 3:73's and we will both be in business!! This probobly wont help you much but hey it never hurts to try. /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    Yes I would definatly switch. Not only will you get more torque to those 38s but it'll save your drivetrain too. /forums/images/graemlins/usaflag.gif /forums/images/graemlins/burb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/usaflag.gif

    I would run the 14ff. I don't think the rear you have is gonna last long with the 38's anyways. change it before you blow the other up!!

    Anyone seen these skinny boggers in action? Still waitin for the snow to melt to try them out.Im hopin the skinny width will offset the short wide ones and use the same power to spin em.
