    /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif You don't find the 5.13's a little deep for 37's?

    So, I have a 1990 that I want to be just like yours. You have a 4" lift springs in the front with 37's? Also, is your axle flip rear with just the 4" ORD flip or do you have lift springs plus the flip?

    Wow, that looks like alot of fun. If I would stop getting it up the @ss by my insurance company, maybe I could afford some bigger tires.

    Hey Brandon,

    The 5.13's and 37's are a real kick in the arse aren't they?

    would you have gone that low if you didn't have OD?

    Re: Pics from today wheeling and slight fender carnage

    it says 55 when i'm doin 35, so 20 there, but i havent tested it in the higher speeds, now that i have my GPS i can really tell, but when i say 80, its becuase my fiance is following me and she calls me and gives me my speed periodicaly

    Re: Pics from today wheeling and slight fender carnage

    Looks like fun Branndon! Yer definatly having more fun with you're new setup. That's pretty darn good with the swaybar still hooked up... I forsee some ORD quick disconnects in your near future! /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
    Bah.. you don't need no stinkin swaybar! /forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif

    With my 4.56's and 38's and no OD i'm spinning 3,000 or higher on the freeway. I'm glad i didn't go lower... Especially since i'm going back down to 35" BFGs for street use after seeing my TSL's wear over the last few thousand miles, they will be my offroad only tires. /forums/images/graemlins/pimp1.gif /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif
