    I was wondering how it would do on a 4 wheel drive trail. I imagine that the extra couple tires in the back would get in the way some times. Plus, the one ton springs would beat my kidneys to death.

    definitely leave it the way it is. That thing would make an awesome tow rig.

    That truck looks a lot like a truck I used to own about 17 years ago, until an old man had a heart attack behind the wheel of his Cadillac Fleetwood, and smashed into it. The front-end frame horns where totally bent and it was totaled. I lost a lot of money on that truck. I had about $15,000 in that truck, and since I did not have the truck appraised and insured for $15,000, the old mans insurance company was only liable for the Blue Book value, which was only $5,000. It was a very expensive lesson on restoring old trucks and driving them on the street.

    I would keep the way it is for the MONSTER effect that a truck like that gives people, but it will be limited on tight trails. Plus, you need to get in the habit of remembering that those tires are out there. After a few months of driving a dualie around, you will get used to it.

    that thing says tow rig all over it... I'd sell the 38s, get some 35s/36s for it instead and tow like a mad man.
