well yeah, I ment that too.

If you didnt need your tires for measurements and stuff you couldve waited until the last minute to buy them. You didnt slap them on the TTB44/8.8 and say Im going to run rocks once these break.

Oh - I'm well aware of axle limitations. When I was building the "BLUE MULE" F100 I used to own, a man told me that "Everyone should bust an axle at least once, so that they never go through that mess again..."

Some stuff you never do TWICE

I don't know if I already said this, but I am only doing the tires first bc the tires that are on the truck now are rated to 20 mph. I am well aware that under serious 4-wheeling, the stock axles will definately not hold up! I had money to do wheels and tires or axles first, and i chose wheels and tires so that the truck would be safe to drive around. The last thing I want to do is have a tire blow up and kill someone's child bc i chose to purchase axles instead of tires...So for now, I am willing to risk breaking an axle!

Thanks for all of you who have supported me and thanks for the kind remarks!

I'd risk breaking the axle during a 4wheelin session over having safe tires for daily driving. sick truck but wheres the rest of the pictures.

Shucks - I'd rather git her home behind a chain than have to drive with a 28 inch on one corner and 54's the rest of the way around!

But of course, it would be easy to follow the divider line... It'd be right outside the winda!!!

Next you need a saws all, or a plasma cutter. Or are you going HIGHER?

- It's always nice to be able to SEE OVER TRAFFIC AHEAD

(Something I always liked about the 'Blue Mule' project)

Of course - speed bumps also become ineffective too...

First off, WWWWOOOOOWWWW!!!!!!! Truck is awsome. Colorado must be different about height of lights, in NC you have a state trooper, county mounty, or city cops waiting at the end of your driveway to right you a ticket. Great truck.Can you say BRAGGING RIGHTS!!!!!
