What is need to connect the two together? My buddy is building K-2500 pickup with a mild built 454, sm465 and 203. For now he has a dana 8 lug 44 front and ff14 bolt rear. He would like as much input on a proper set-up for sand, hill & mud and still pull as a DD. PS I think his plans for some where between 35 - 44 in tire size and any recommended on how much lift?
