It's going to look retarded with our narrow of axles with 12" of lift and 42's. Full width is a must that big.

Is this for real? 42's on a 30? Thats the most rediculous thing I've heard in a long time. you are the 4x4 equivalent of a ricer.

As far as 42's being much better than 44's on the street. Thats not true..a bias ply swamper is a bias ply swamper no matter what. It just depends, no 2 swampers are the same.

Try to really wheel that thing, with 42's on that d30. Im not talkin about "muddin", take that b!tch to tellico and you'll see why you do not see any people running 42's on that axle. You better get really good a pulling shafts and setting up gears, because you'll be doing it a lot

Whats the point though, why lift your truck 12" on 42's with a 30. What are you going to do with it? I guess the same thing that 3/4 of the people on here do with there trucks, nothing. To me that is just half-a$$ed as fawk

It doesnt matter to me, I just lurk on here usually, some of the posts with real tech are interesting. But they are few and far between. Maybe someone should add some actual tech in this post, like what upgrades NEED to be done to even consider running 42's on such a truck..

you ever think he KNOWS what he needs thus why i am not jumping on him...DUR leave Ryan alone. he isnt a complete moron and who sayed everyone has to build there truck to go to tellico. personally i will never have a truck that will go there not my style. so have fun dont be a dick and enjoy the site.

after the first post you made in Jeys thread was info but after that the last 3 you have been *****ing if you fell the site sucks and there isnt enough tenical info head over to another board move on we dont need people that ***** constantly. really. its not needed.
