Will do. Wasn't trying to hijack. Sorry!

no problem BB!

so some , seems UPDATES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ive been convinced to build for 37s. DOT bead locks from a site, forget the name, and military surplus 37" mtrs will be ordered in the spring. we are now starting the search for junk yard dana 60s, 4.10s are dime a dozen but really trying to find 4.56s. ugh inspection will be fun with d60s and 3.5" backspacing. rears will have a very nice limited slip as are, so ill probably go arb for the front. this will be a LOW budget build. after that, drive shafts will be addressed. and then transfercase. . never thought id go this big but ought to be fun.

I could have swore I dropped a line in here but I guess I was wrong. Creeped on this thread a few times and really like what you've done. Just read your post that you'll be building for 37s and D60s. I always tell myself I won't go bigger than 35s but we'll see how that goes.

well i really wanted to stay at the 35 range, get a 44 up front, and call it a day. but the cost to take two 60s from the junk yard and flip is less than to buy and build on 44! and then my buddy showed me a few military surplus places to get cheap tires and dot approved bead locks. eventually i was convinced. ill be doing this all soon after my inspection in june. but ill hopefully be building the axles soon. thanks for the comment tanimal.

3.5 RK with 35's AND flats? Do you have a direct side shot of this? Looks real good from other angles.
