when you get the Tires on, post a pic, and tell us if they rub, I have 205/70/15's on mine, I know I can run 235/75/25's, but if I could, I would run 30's or 31's.

Well guys. I am faced with a very tough decision.... to make the truck a pre-runner... or a 4x4? :( Its so hard to picck!!! I know where i can get a good 4x4 donor for $150. body is starting to get bad, and the 2.9 has a rotten oilpan but other than that its really good... Was just taken off the road about 4 months ago.. and should i get a mig welder for xmas with my xmas money? or the other wire kind...? please help me decide :O [I'm HORRIBLE, at making decisions...]

I guess 4x4. What year is the Donor? Dana 28 or 35?

Might be the cheaper route but both would take a while if this is your DD

just a little update. I got a new impact gun so i can change my tires tomoro after it stops snowing.. and i also found out my father wasted $2000 on this peice of cr*p






Only good thing in the car really... a sb 350 making around 450-500 hp. I guess that because the car is a 10 second car..

most of the car is mine. minus the Engine,tranny,shifter,and RPM gauge. It needs some body work.. so i unno. I may just sell the pos...
