So I started a solid axle swap on my 2001 Mazda B3000 several months ago, and this is the progress so far and of course I have 14 Bolt rear. Tires are 35 inch Nitto Terra Grapplers and running 4.88s in both axles. The front is a High Pinion Dana 60 from a 97 Ford f350 while the truck sits on 78/79 Ford Bronco 8 inch lift coils, they are about 25 inches unsprung. As for the links the uppers and lowers are made of 2 inch thick DOM tubing with .25 inch wall and the Trac bar is 1.5 inch with .25 inch wall sporting all RuffStuff rod ends. Oh and it's a 3.0 v6 with 5spd and a manual 4x4 conversion (2wd edge to 4wd)

Just finished the rear lift kit today, here's what the final product looks like:
I am in the process of building a bumper to replace the stock one

Plans for bigger tires with that much lift and beefy axles?

I'm thinking I'll go to 37s when I get the money but I also plan on keeping it daily drivable so it really depends on if I can reach 70 or not. I'm planning on doing a diesel engine swap later, probably a 6bt, so I went ahead and got 1-tons
