    Man, I love how those things look. Totally impractical for wheeling around here, but they look great. Lotta fun in the mud I bet, what sort of gearing do you need to run with 44's?

    ah?? i am not sure how i'm going to take that. :confused:
    i'm running them cuse the 39.5 boggers were not big enough,
    i ran them with only a 4", i have seen others on this site doing the same.
    i added a 3" body lift and took more off the fenders along with
    running zero rates to move the front axle forward 1.5". not to
    mention that i have 12 " of room for up travle,not that it tops out
    hitting the fenders.i'm running the 44s becuse i like the ground clearece,
    also the truck isn't so tall that i cant fit on the trails.it is also easy to get
    in and out of. do you watch ttc?, toby harolds k5 ran a 6" with 44s and scored over 1000 on the rti!petersons new ua truck is running a 4" with 39.5
    crawlers! so is it the lack of lift that bothers you or that i didn't follow the standered idea of how to build a truck? :confused:

    Your rig is freakin' sweet! Perfect height for those 44s. Just the right amount of fender trimming, too. Just out of curiosity, what type of terrain do you 'wheel that thing on, rocks, mud, sand, snow, etc.?
