    Pic 1 looks like the UAV is giving a big smile for the camera. On a side note Steve, with the way the front is trimmed do you think 38.5's will clear at full stuff?

    Well, I plan on stuffing 39.5's but I will need to "trim" some more of the front for sure, maybe even a little more off the rear.

    Well, if my yours is anything like mine, you will need to tub the rear and either move the front axle forward, or do some serious floor pan mods. I think when I go one ton and to 38's or 40's I will do some serious floor pan mods.

    Yeah, I plan on doing floorboard mods at that time, I don't think I will need to tub the rear just cut a little more sheet metal, I run spacers in the rear.

    I moved my axle forward and one inch body. I'm clearing 35's that are TRUE 35's without cutting the inner fender. I mean the innerfender is in factory stock location still bolted to the fender lip. Well I think I am. At the Reaper proving grounds (ditch in my yard) It looks like it will work. I need to back it up a ramp and get it nose down with weight on the suspension and double check for sure. I could have gone 1.5 inches forward but I didn't think I have enough drag link to pull that much off. When I do the cross over I can get that extra 1/2 inch.
    I bet you could clear 38's without getting into the floor if you go the 1.5 inches forward. That's on 10 inch rims with a 4 inch back space. You start getting into 14.5 wide tires...ehhhh doubt you can do it without more lift or hacking the floor pan.

    Well, I am running 36x14.5x15's now and in the rear under full stuff you can hear the inner fender BONG when it gets the inside of the fender well. On the front I am going to have to do some hacking I think. Probaby in the rear too when I go one ton and at least 38's.

    Grim how did the moving the axle forward work out? I was thinking of possibly doing that myself.

    I moved mine 2" forward. As long as you have cross over, it's a sinch. No problems so far. Had to cut the core support to clear the 42s, but I expected that. Added 3" to my front drive shaft to account for the axle move and the 4" lift. I'm very pleased with the results.

    I know that Keith and I both have 14.50 SX's, but i have a 14 bolt, and he has told me in the past that his tires rub in the rear on the inside. mine have never hit ( ORD shackle flip, extended shackles, stock springs w/ overload NOT cut or flipped), but his ass end may be a little flexier, however i think it may be the fact that the 14 bolt is wider.

    i have seen Deps rig, and can tell you, his rear springs are VERY flexy.

    Right now with the 35x14.50's on 4 1/8" backspacing wheels and no spacers in the rear they just about touch the inner well when stuffed. The front clears by just a bit. I am planning to move the front axle forward 1" and adding 3/4" of lift to help clear the 38's. On the rear I am going to move the axle back 1 1/2" but in order to pass inspection I am only allowed a 1/4" spacer.

    I think I'll put a rock like that in my garage. Make it easy to change my oil. Could probably sit on a chair and do it....

    Just wondering,

    Corey
