yeh, the only thing is I want to get alot of miles/ years out of it. the trans is on its last legs, and I just bought it this summer so I don't know how well everything would hold up to the extra strain of having to move those larger tires. how does yours do? have you broken many parts?

Mine did fine, it was a bit slower, and used more gas. The 8 lug 1 ton axles and suspension handles it fine. I have a 5.8 so the PSD might move better as it has more power. If your worried about wear, some 33's would also look good. I tend to over do everything I do. I put a shift kit in my trans and that was the best thing I ever did. If you have to get a new trans id put the kit in at the same time.

i've got a B&M shift kit in it, it was in it when I bought it, I think the previous owner put it in there as a last ditch effort to save the trans. my goal is to keep it as my daily driver for 13 yrs./ 300,000 miles so thats the reason I haven't thrown on the big tires yet. if it's still running in 13 yrs. i might go all out and lift it with some big tires and make it a nice toy.

My 93 F250 460 with 5speed 6"suspension 3"body. Love wheeling the fullsize rigs. I'm tired of seeing the little jeeps and tube chassis running all over the place. No offense to anyone. Just my opinion. Great looking trucks guys.

Thanks but the pic really makes it look bigger than it is. Those are only 36's like your running. I could fit probably 40's but my axle won't hold them. stupid ttb.

Yeah with a huge truck comes huge problems. You know when it rains it pours. Everything likes to break at once. But like a truck should be driven I beat the crap out of it. It's only got 100,000 miles on it. I wish they would have put the solid axles under all those years.

Have you considered swapping in a Dana 60 from an F350? It a straight bolt up replacment to your Dana 50 TTB.

What brand is your toolbox?
