    Re: Post your trucks 38\" pics...

    I'm running 39.5X15X16.5s but they are worn down pretty much to 38 inches. Does that count? /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif I have around 3-4 inches of suspension lift. Three inches of body lift and lots of fender trimming on the front. I have not trimmed any in the rear yet because I'm going to move the rear axle back a few inches and swap to 59 inch Ford springs.

    I'm running 5.13's w/ my stock motor and drive train and 38.5's. The 5.13's help a lot but it will still get bogged down in the mud w/ the locker/limited slip setup in 4Hi. Put it in 4Lo, however, and STAND BACK! I can't tell how high the mud is flying from inside the truck, but let's just say the roof gets about as muddy as the sides.... /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    RPMs are higher on the highway, but I can still cruise at 70+.

    Oh... sorry, no pics. Too buisy bying parts to get a new digital.... /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif
