with the last truck i built, i fell into a trap. bigger is better. started out with a 350/203 and an 86 C10. bought a K10 shortbox parts truck, and a set of 3/4 ton axles. i got to reading, and the 350/203 didnt seem like a good idea, so i bought a hydro 465/205 combo. that wasnt enough so i bought a K30 parts truck for the 60. my 6" EZ Rides werent enough, so i switched to 52s. the 36" tires i was planning on running were way underkill for the 1 tons, so i bought a set of 40" TSLs on beadlocks. fast forward to this project... i bought the C1500, and decided (due to a bent frame) to swap it onto a K1500 chassis, and SFA it. scored a Dana 44 on EBay for $25, less outers. i'm going to need to regear it, and buy some outers (already bought a flat top and steering arm for the required crossover too). then i get my SFA brackets. well, the spring bushing holes in the brackets are too big, and the front crossmember is too wide for the frame. this setup would've added 2" to the lift height of the springs, making my 4" TC EZ Rides perfect for a set of 35s. well i sent them back, and the brackets that i'm looking at buying now will add 4". should be able to clear 37" MTRs. now my Dana 44 doesnt look like such a good idea anymore, as i planned on buying a set of Boggers so i can really play at the local bogs. my buddy who runs every one regularly breaks his 44 with 33" Mud Terrains. am i falling into the same trap? or am i just spending my money wisely by thinking seriusly about a 60?
