    Yeah but with the tie rod in a higher location, you might have cleared the diff cover, maybe? I know -Matt- on Pirate runs Ballistic arms and the dimensions are pretty similar to Chassis Unlimited arms but his tie rod is in the closer location. He did have to build a bent panhard though... All fingers point to swapping this single hole hi-steer arm for a double I guess :rolleyes:

    Polished? That's the way it came. :p




    I'm half tempted to just go with 37"s... ~$140 less per tire.

    I bought 1 for mock up :eek:

    Between tires, lockers, turbo, shocks, and misc other things that will nickel and dime me, I'm pretty far behind if I want to make it to Moab.

    I'm not really concerned if it'll look better with 37"s or 40"s. Form is always nice to have, but I'll take function over form. If 40"s have that much of an edge over 37"s to warrant the extra cost, weight, and chances of breaking something then I'll stick with the 40"s.

    Meh here's my opinion...


    A good friend of mine 01Tundra...ran 37's on two Ultimate Adventures, then decided he wanted 40's. He ran them less than a year before going back to 37's because he preferred them over the 37's. I have pretty much patterned my truck build after his, getting a lot of insight from him on certain subjects. Basically he is a guy who's opinion I trust.


    That being said, he tells me I will regret moving up to 40's and should stick with 37's. I want 40's just to see for myself, I sure hope I don't regret it since its an expensive move.


    FWIW

    I cant speak for everyone else.. but i can speak for myself and i know when i was building my 94 ext cab toy i kept putting bigger and bigger tires on it.. when i had to part it out and start over with my taco i was shooting for 44's but the most tires end at 42 so thats the tires going on it when i sas and as for my 94 that i still have after the taco is done it's getting 54's so point i was making is BIG FUCKING TARS

    If you have the money go 40's and if
    You don't like them sell them and get 37s. Still prob come out close to even if you do. The other way around you'd loose money though.

    Hey I am new to the SAS, but I am in the middle of a build. I got a 1989 Toyota, and have to rebuild the motor, and plan to sas it , I have got a stock Toyota axle. My plan is to use chevy springs on the rear, put the rear springs up front with a add a leaf, buy a high steer kit and shock hoops and shocks. I built a front hanger tonite(hope its right, built it off the Internet). I am trying to do it very cheap. So far how does my plan sound? Thanks for any input.

    Here the truck

    Started bobbing it this weekend, took out 12 inches

    personally I would advise buying front springs from allpro.. they guys that have done the rear to front thing well ive not been impressed buy the ones ive seen done personally I don't think they flex as well nore do they over come out right youll have to make adjustments.
