    Regular cab SRW 4x4 trucks are great for actually going wheeling, but there is somthing about a massive piece of sheetmetal and tires, which is lifted sky high that really looks bad ass.

    C&C is waaaay narrow.

    You might consider switching to SRW hubs to move the WMS out 2" each side, and then doing discs in the back -- can't keep the drums without moving them around as well. You'll still need some custom crazy wheels or wheel spacers in the center to fit wide tires.

    I'm running dual 235/85-16's on SRW hubs, had to tub the wheel wells in a coupla inches, but have good fitment otherwise. Of course, those are decidedly stock-ish tires :D

    Anyway, this way I end up with a little room behind the wheel for brake fiddling... you'd be clooose with big tires, but I don't see wide tires fitting on DRW hubs without whacking the springs / U-bolts.
