Yea .. I see where your coming from. I'm just giving you a hard time man. Full withs are awesome so to say you don't like them ... I had to say something. But I understand they are not practical and take a **** load of work to do them right ... But the are soooooooo much stronger. You can narrow them or just back space your wheel right and you won't be that wide. But they are a ton of work ... An 44/8.8 is much easier. But ..their is a lot of serious value in going 60... Things really get beefed up for the better.

At the same time I don't really do rocks much, so the point of having 60s is kind of diminished for me.

Well it really has to do with surviving the stress from the rotating weight like heavier rims/ tires. Also the steering is much stronger , a bunch more gear options and about a million other things. Just like we were saying they use them in jeep speed. A version of the dana 60 comes in a corvette .., I don't see them doing much crawling. Even my 60 came from an f350 that ace with stock 32s lol ... That thing was not built to crawl. It's about strength. Simply the 60 is much stronger than the 44.

Job interview was a wash, 12/hr to start, with my 2 job income i'd actually lose ~200 per two weeks to take it. Bleh.

Also finally got nabbed for my inspection being out of date, I should probably finish the last few things to get it done.

Still dealing with a stupid O2 sensor code that comes and goes. Going to dig into it this weekend, other than that, it's ready to be inspected soon and long arms should be following that.

Work has kept me from making any real progress on the thing, it's lame. Although I did put on new brakes, rotors, and dumped in my amsoil finally.

Anyone ever use a K&N Apollo? I think I'm going to use one, go straight from my intake to my snorkel, pull the factory airbox out and go dual batteries.
