    too close to the wedding for me. I am probably going to do my 52" spring swap before I run the rig again anyway. I got the springs almost ready to rock. Just need some new bushings and a few little things and it'll be time to take the plunge.

    I should be able to make it. I'll hope to have my new tires by then too. Don't know if I'll have the full 8 lug conversion done by then, but we'll see. /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    I'm not realyl worried about running 8-lug. I have never heard of lug nut shearing off or failing, it's usually the axle shafts/u-joints. It'd just be a little more convenient (sp?) for having the wheels all the same. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif As long as the gears are the same, I'm good to go till I can afford a 60 /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif

    BTW, Grundy99 may have a hook up for a 4.10 geared front for me, so IF it works out...I might beg for a "help Shane get his truck done for TSF" day at my place. /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    You need to look into making your own Bio-Diesel or WVO mix (cut the WVO in half with regular diesel) /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif You could save a lot of money with one of those options.
