I was just lost did not have the fab skills and I could easily follow that white trucks design because I had somewhat of a price list.

Now I know much more and have waited to find the correct axle I want for my needs, now its a simple procedure, just cost some money.

You still planning on being here in March? If so, is the 44 going to be under it?

No the D44 wont be under it then unless I find a good cheap set of 37x12.5x17 tires which is really unlikely.

I just emailed my uncle but it should not be a problem, just need to make sure everything is a go
