    Pics- One step closer to rolling on 44\" tires

    Got the 12" front springs under the Crew Cab and 44" Gumbo Mudders on the front end. Nothing's bolted up yet, but at least I got a look at how high the front will sit.

    Heres how it did look with a 6" suspension lift and 40" tires. http://community.webshots.com/photo/39745434/57511091pgEcPZ

    And here it is as of today:
    Front Corner shot

    Under front

    Side of the tire

    Makes an 8" lift and 38's look small

    Can't wait to get the rear lifted and all four 44's on it.

    It just has some 6" blocks in the rear. I'm gonna put them under my camo Blazer someday when I decide to get it rolling again.

    I'm hoarding all the 60's I can get /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif .

    I'm going to use the chrome oil pan on a 327 that will go in the orange/black Blazer. Last week I threw in a temporary 350 motor so I can at least drive it till I can round up other parts for the 327 and get the heads gone through.

    The projects never end... /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

    Thats about how much snow there is 85 miles north of Spokane. Usually theres about 3 feet this time of year.

    Yesterday I got to goof off in the snow with the plow and I made a big snow mound in our field to try to drive on or over. I also plowed a bunch of snow to the edge of the mud pits, to make sure they would be well supplied with water in the spring. This all left a big plowed area for spinning around in.

    The only thing I wished was that the Crew Cab was running so I could go blast over or through snow banks and mounds. I suppose it being non-operational keeps me out of trouble though.

    Spokane here I come, looks like you are having way too much fun up there with all the trucks and parts laying around...

    Looking super cool! For some reason 44's make about anything look small regardless of how built it may be
