    granted mine are not mud rated, the nitto terra grapplers i have on mine will go everywhere anyone else with mud rated tires go. no road noise either if you have to drive to get to the nearest mud bath.
    my BIL just bought a 98 chevy with a 3in body lift. ill see if i can snap some shots of it later on this week being i wont see him until then.

    do not run 35 on IFS if you plan to use the truck for what it was made for.

    how about more info on what you plan on doing. street use, trailer queen?

    Thanks mud seems like you have the info I been trying to get.

    The truck is certainly NOT a trailer queen. The main use of this truck is going to be for work. It pulls a bobcat about half of the week. and then on the week ends it pulls a boat. Then in the fall it is used for hunting season.
    The truck is an ECSB 96 and has always been a **** off road. I recently put the 4l80e in the truck and am now putting new front and rear differentials in it (4.56) When I bought the differentials it basically came with a 6" superlift for nothing so I am gonna put it on (I think). Whats your advise?
