    I dropped the /forums/images/graemlins/burb.gif off at Performance Ofrroad in Gulfport,Ms. this weekend. It's going up with 12" superlift
    springs & zero rates up front & ORD 4" flip & zero rates with skyjacker 6" sprigs in the rear. The're also swapping out the sm465,241 for a TH 400,205. The truck will also be getting 44" boggers on 16.5x12 Weld outbacks. It looks like this now [​IMG] but in about 2 weeks or so it will be totally different. I will try to get some pics as soon as I can.
    Sorry about the pic.

    Cool, but one question:
    Why didn't you do it yourself? That sounds like a lot of money! /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif

    Its because I don't have the time but I have most of the parts from a previous truck. Chris at Peformance Offroad
    is a good guy to deal with. They will build just about anything you want.

    Well John, I was waiting for the 6" echobit kit for the rear to come in but I could not wait any longer. So I ordered the 4" ORD kit. The rear looks a little bit higher than the front so I hope it would level out.

    Gotcha! I was actually thinking your old (52") 8" rears springs might be better but I remember now the Burb has 56" rear springs. /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif

    Should be plenty big when it's done. /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif

    I play in the mud where you got to run 44's. Nvrenuf might still have pics of my old blazer with 44 boggers stuck to the frame in Jones swamp . I am also planning to run it in the mud bogs.

    I like the rim choice! /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif one question...why not 14's? 44's are plenty wide for them. /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif /forums/images/graemlins/ears.gif

    Its because they are already mounted & I am getting a real
    good deal. Chris is asking $2400 & they only have 200 miles
    on them.I priced some brand new ones for 1840, so I would be
    only paying $560 for the weld wheels.
