38's will be on soon enough. im wondering the same thing, but i think with 5.13's and 4low it should do good enough. now if this set up stays in long enough for me to do front and rear lockers, then im not too sure.

a 460 will be followed by nothing smaller then 2.5 tons.

the major things i ran into is caster, being so tall with the wedge style axle. other then that, if you know what your doing, everything is pretty strait forward. my measurements wont help you out since you want to 3 link.

14" fox non coil over emulsion shocks Off Road Warehouse - Shocks Fox Shocks 2.0 Fox Non Coil-Over Emulsion Shocks Fox Racing Shox 2.0 Pro Series 14&quot Travel Emulsion Shock- .625 Shaft Fox #980-99-090-A

i used the factory lift blocks as well, and lowered the front leaf spring hangers down. if you dont have a body lift, i would suggest a smaller shock, since i had to mount my shock up higher on the frame because they were so long. if i didnt have the body lift my bed would have been in the way.

the radius arms and coil setup flexes extremely well. plus is is super cost effective with the d44
