I can say their 44s and 47s measure actual size. Those are the only sizes I've been around to measure.

for the front im running 14" fox coilovers with reservoirs. i will be doing a 3 link, just not yet. axles are out of a 79 f150. drums in the rear. for the winter im using stock gearing 3.50's because i will be running 255's for the winter. my plan is to keep it simple for now so i can get it done. after winter i will be putting a full spool in the rear, 3 link the front, locker, 5.13's and 39.5's.

You need to adjust your pinion and caster angles. Bad.

thank you.

yes, the bl is staying on.

no need for bigger jack stands. if i need it taller i can use the lift to raise the truck and add more blocks.

zach, i did end up having to bend it about half an inch. which was no big deal since i found out one of my friends has a tube bender. i was very impressed with how close you were able to get it.
