    have been offered a set of 44" tsl 95% tread for my 38.5/15 boggers-\ that are still new.
    biggest issue i see is the 44s are 15s but come on a set of 8 lug wheels.i have a d44 front diff now but also have a d60 im preping for install this fall.
    i have a 85 gmc jimmy that will also be getting a tbi 454 this fall.
    jimmy has 8" front lift and 9" rear lift

    Well, I would say don't trade the Boggers. Why you ask? Well, next year, you will go after 44's anyways and I will buy the Boggers!:haha:
    Man, you have been talking about 44's all year..... do it! You can look at my calipers to see how much you have to grind down when you help put in my 60. Hint, Hint.

    tough call

    if you are doing more mudding than anything you might want to stick with the boggers and upgrade later. but if your going to be driving on street and trail i would get the d60 done and in. you still might have more trimming to do? gears? if anything ask if he will trade with money. more of a money issue though i would do it.
