ok i know this was abouot a page and a half ago but.....dont even think about going with the superlift. as crazy as you are about running over things and rocks and stuff.....dont do it. you saw my truck and how far down those torsion bar hangers are and you know exactly what its like. IMO....spend the extra cash and get the rcd...

richmond gears are the top of the line as far as gears go. I would defidently go with a 15x8 rim if you plan on airing down at all. The 15x10 will pop beads alot easier then the 8's.

if it was a pavement pounder, the superlift would be awesome, did you notice we sat at about the same height?
but i abuse my truck, as you saw, and the super lift with those t-bar hangers just wont do too well, especially doing more crawling than mud runs.
hell heres an example, those hangers would have been caught up probably..

thats what i was under the impression of..

but what about road manners? how does the 15x10 hold up against the 15x8?

i have seen 37x14.5 toyo mt's on a 15x8s he runs at like 3psi, no bead locks lol
and no luck on gear prices yet no ones open

you just wanted to put your vid up again

Yeah I think the superlift would just get you in more trouble than anything, you could get over way bigger drops and stuff and steeper hills but the t-bars are still stock position. talk about bad news bears IMO
