on this eral truck with leaf springs id run as close to factory flat springs and get out the sawsall. i see no reason to lift more then 2-4"S to run tires as large as 40s
ive had very good res
sults with welded spider gears. also see no reason to spend money in the axle end on these trucks. and on road manners arent horrible but will ear tires if you run alot of asphalt. if running on paved surfaces id safeyour cash and leave the axles stock.
these trucks can be turned into offroad monsters with very little cash invested.
i would spend most my money on cross over steering and sawzall blades with big tires then decide if maybe welding the rear will be worth it. i can tell you for offroad its worth it.
