Wasn't planning on new tires, but a guy off the classicbronco
list sent me a gift cert he was not using for 25% off for any
set if pitbull tires. I got the 44 X 19 X 16.5 rockers.
Currently I have 42 IROKS.
I was worried the 44's would be way too wide, but it turns
out they are less than 2" wider at the widest point over the 42 IROKS.
Not sure if the mog 404 axles will hold up to 44's or not, but I
might soon be finding out.
Right now I have 2" front springs, combined with approx 5" from
the portal lift, means about 7" lift total. Measuring, I found out I had
2" more lift in the back than the front. This is what the front would
look like if I swap to 4" springs with the 44's (will also let me put
in the big block with less worrying about oil pan interference).
