Now I have a great wife!!!

Well the wife is going to let me take $1,000 from our tax return and get some parts for my truck!! That will get me everything I need to get Mater street ready!! All I will have to do is save up another $500 for gears and then later on more for lift and tires. Looks like we will be having a big wrenching party in the next few weeks!!!

So....she wasn't great before this?

I'll probably need at least a weeks notice so I can make sure the calendar is clear.....preferably on a day that isn't going to be below freezing.

6" will clear 38's on that truck. You need some 40" Hawgs for that lift.

I would love to go 40's but I am just worried about breaking the front axle. I am sure it is bound to happen. So untill I can afford a dana 60 swap, I will probably just go with the 38's.

Do you think there is that much difference in the pressure applied to axles? I mean a 38x15.50 and a 40x17.50 isn't going to change much IMO. They'll both twist a stub shaft off in a heartbeat.

I think you should go with the big dogs up front. That way you're not always kicking yourself later for not doing it.

Besides, there's 30 years worth of Dana 44's in the salvage yards. Parts are cheap and they're easy to work on. Plus if you save your money for the strong parts you can build a 44 a lot stronger than a stock 60. Likely not any more expensive than a junkyard 60 too.

Unless of course the 60 is just an "I want it" thing.....in which case I understand completely.
