get your tires all the same or your 4x4 will blow up
 






This should work.
new exhaust clears
new total chaos u-bolt plates give 2" more clearance under springs
leaf pack is starting to break in.
front appears to be drooping nicely.

Why will it blow up?

I am gonna get some crager soft 8's. Do you guys know if the auto locking hubs will still work with those wheels?:exp:

Yea the hubs will fit through the hole in the center of the wheel just fine.
Running in 4x4 on paved sufaces with different sized tires front to rear isnt good for the t-case which might in fact cause it to fail becuase of the difference in speeds. Its kinda like having different gear ratios front and rear and since the t-case is "locked" and doesnt allow slippage then it will either drag the tires or break. But on the trail where traction is minimal then you shouldnt have too much of a problem.
 






Ummmm?:roll: Who in the world uses 4x4 on pavement? I thought that in and of itself was means to kill stuff? I only used 4x4 offroad.

I am VERY VERY impressed with the 4-lo on my truck! Crawled right up a really steep hill that I couldn't even get up with a running start in 4 high. It just walked right up and didn't even slip one bit! Nice going down the other side as well in 4-lo. It works great as engine braking! Is that a bad thing to use it as engine brakes?

I've got to ask..is your camera fawked up, or is that photoshopped?
I suppose I should add, or was that just a setting on the camera?
 






No, I photoshopped it!
Rather 70's I must say.
Like ya been trippin on acid or something:salute:
 












OK I'll play that game too.

Make that 4... Can't forget Paul's. 22" of usable 4x4 travel. It might be too late for the "jack and 4x4 piece of wood" pic though... :)

...and yes, that's me driving.
