He decided he did not want to respond to my pm that said I would come pick up a pair of them this weekend if he was around.

haha no ****... even finding 37" tires is half the battle. used are basically impossible. Its basically 35's or 38's. But god forbid I run 38" tires on a dana 30, I would probably get banned from every forum I am on.

Annnnddd there are no 16.5" wheels that have the 5x4.5 bolt pattern.

Holy ****! MT/R Kevlars are $319/tire and KM2s are $349/tire on Tire Rack in the 37x12.50R17 variety.

Oh shut it Troy, hahahahhaha dude I swear I was like on the verge from getting banned from MC people hate running anything more than a 33 on a d30... I guess I am too big of a sally when it comes to the gas pedal because I have never had a problem. we run tons of d30's at work on 35-37" tires, never had lots off issues.

Both help a ton, the AA for sure help, and the trusses keep the shafts from bending while twisting.

LMAO thats the only thing a 44 is better for, bigger ring gear. I just dont feel like going through all that work only to blow out the same size ujoint over and over. And then have to service a lockout hub assembly on the trail.

d60's, front and rear here I come!

..........I wish.
