This truck was only supposed to get some wider wheels when I got it last month, but I think we all know how that chit goes. Ended up w/ 6" superlift with rear springs and extended RA's, superrunner steering, 4.56's w/ rebuilt axles, warn manual hubs, trailmaster shocks, and some 35" Cooper A/T's on some eagle fake beadlock bling. I think I need to add another inch of lift in the rear? The ride is awesome, and I kept the swaybars on so it still handles like it did stock. The 4.56s felt crazy as hell driving home from my buddy's shop on the 31"s, it was 2300rpm at 65mph in OD. Very happy with the way it turned out, it doesn't look like a grandpa truck anymore. :thumbup

wow does that ever look sexy now

so you find that the 4:56's with the 35's are a good mix for gears? what size of engine are you running too?

the reason i ask is i'm gonna hopefully be going up to 36's this year but leaving room for 38's when it's done and said and i only want to regear once. i'm debating btwn 4:56's and 4:88's

(sorry for the hijack)

It feels just a little bit faster on acceleration w/ the 4.56/35" than w/ the previous 3.55/31" combo, notice no difference on the highway. 351w motivation
