Re: The newest look...

so what do you get, about 1/3 wheel turn before the tire rips on the spring?

I do love those tires though.

Stock gears, its not as slow as you would think lol. the tires arent toooo wide, they are 14.5s so yes, they rub on the springs at full crank, but i can turn them most of the way with no rubbing, but without the front lifted hitting large bumps results in serious bumper rubbing. Im going to lift the front this weekend, level the girl out.

Re: The newest look...

44's and 3:73's. Wow. I hope you don't ever pull a trailer. Do you plan on re-gearing it?

Re: The newest look...

to bad your not closer. I would love to check that out in person. I wouldnt mind running a set of 44s I love those tires, i originally wanted those instead of mine, but found a good deal on mine. What fender flares are those?

Re: The newest look...

Nice! Like to see it when your done lifting.

But, yeah, I'd be scared running 3.73s with 44s. Can't be good long term???

Re: The newest look...

I hope you are saving for a trans as yours is not going to be long for this world without gears. I ran 4.30's with my38's and thenswitched to 41's and that still was a noticable drop in performance from the 38's

Re: The newest look...

Tranny is fresh from transmission wholesales, 4 year 40k mile warranty, so if it goes ill get another lol. Im hoping to do gears and a locker by december, i should have enough saved to do it all at once by then. I was thinking in the area of 5.29s or so. The flares are the bushwacker cut outs, pricey but the look good. Its only money in the end, we all just waste it in other places lol.
