    Ya not the best way to do things. Well i blew out both CV for the four time in less than a year. I got very good at changing them out that was back in Nov. So parked my truck and didnt touch it until Feb probably. I rounded up some money and started buying parts and decided that if im going to do it im going to "try" do it only once and the right way. So i found a deal on a 60 and then cut my ifs out. So about 4 months but hour wise of fabbing on the truck maybe 40 hours to get to the point that im at right now which is figuring out brake lines.

    Bigger tires equal more money. lol I want to run 39.5 but i got a killer deal on my 37 mtr. I got them brand new for 1200 otd And they are the OLD style which i think is better than the new ones.

    I was thinking about bobbin my bed but i haul 2 dirt bikes to the dunes so i couldnt bob it more than 8 inches which i think isnt worth it unless your going to take out a 12 inch.

    truck looks bad ass, but ive always heard that with tons and anything less than 40's you dont gain much ground clearance over a 3" independent lift. can you get some measurements maybe to the chunk and the frame.
