Hey Kris, will you be using this thread as your project log? If so, I'll move it to the project log section and rename the thread title for ya.... to represent the swap at hand.

REALLY funny story, buddy has a jacked f150 with 39' iroc;s and he split his tire, and had to get a ride from deep in the bush to grab my front two tires today for the dana 44, keep in mind there still BRAND NEW and put them on the front of his full width d44 to drive home! 35 on the front and 39 on the back and it looked allright! wish I had pics but i was busy cutting and grinding

When all is said and done, were thinking around $3500 - 4000, if you price out the superlift and all the good things that do with that its not that much more
