    who has some rockwells on leafs ? how do they do ? i have a shortbed with a 454 i was thinking of putting some 63 inch rears and putting my 52s on the front and tossing the rockwells on there . I was just concerned with the axle wrap ,i guess i could put on torque arms i also have a set of 49s and a doubler setup would this be to much for the leafs ? i also dont need any lift because i have a 47 power wagon body to put on top (no fenders and skinny body !! )so if anybody has this setup please send some pics !! how well will it FLEX ?? will the 52s be enough ? :confused:

    fenders, body, and flex are the least of your worries. with 52s up front, you're going to have an addition to your oil pan... its called a front differential.:doah:
