    Post up your 4wd STRAIGHT AXLE ONLY trucks with specs lift & tire size. A nice side shot would help out greatly.

    Id have to find and scan one that I built. Started off as an 89 GMC 3500. Used Offroad (Un)limited 48" kit, 12" Superlift springs. It was huge. Running 40" ground hawgs. Took a coupe of the lower springs out so it will actually flex some, wheeled it for a bit, then lowered it with 4" junkyard springs, ran 35" Baja claws then found a deal on 36" swamper SXs. Then found some cut out flares, bought some 40" boggers, lifted it lil more with 8" BDS springs. Between the 36s and 40s, it looked the best. Was a bad ass truck. Parted it out for some reason, but miss that truck. Now I have a 96 Yukon that I'm eventually gonna SAS, DIY4X mounts, 4" or 52s springs, H2 wheels, see how it sits with either 315/70s or 35s. HP 44, 4.56s, van 14 bolt full float.....

    I did a 97 sas with a d60 from a 76 Chevrolet 1 ton. Cut the tubes ans switched sides and axle shafts and used the stock push button transfer case. Swaped the 14b rear with 4.11 gears. Rear was stock springs with shackle flip kit and 2" blocks. Front was 6" lift springs fron the 76 and i removed 3 leaves for a smooth ride and to lower it a bit. Full flex on 36" tires. Ended up putting 38.5s on later.

    98 K3500 Offroad unlimited solid axle kit, 4" Tuff Country springs, 35x13.50R20 Cepek FC II on 20x10s. Sold a coupe years ago to a guy in Florida and he sold it to a guy in michigan I am told. Last I saw of it, it had red SS stripes and 454SS decals.
