    Talk to Pete (pcorssmit). That is roughly what he is running (39s with 3" I believe). Yeah, you gotta be real intimate with cutting tools to make it work. If I ever get that far, I am attempting to build a rig that runs 40+ tires (44 I hope) on 4-5" total lift. But, to do that, I will be moving the axle about 2" forward and modifying the firewall.

    Oh, in the future you might want to use a more descriptive title. I (and many others) only read what we find interesting. People who have the answers you need may not even look at a post with a vague subject.

    Some day: 4" lift, 44" tires, massive cutting, shorter wb and rear overhang.
