Its been done before
Thanks for all the responses. It sounds like the D44 up front is a min. Whats the stock rear axle and can it handle the 38s? Ford 9in? The actual tire size when I measured it was 37" od. Maybe because there on 12" classic IIs. Any way that should help us out here.
Definite plans so far: Headers, K+N, Dual exhaust w/ flowmaster, crome nerfs, supercharger (Magna or Eaton M112 Custom), Lift ????In, 39.5 claws.
Oh, my commute: about 10 min all back roads. My current daily is a 99 Toyota Landcruiser: True Dual exhaust, Custom made headers, Custom Installed Eaton M112, 3In Body Lift, 4In rear springs (National), Lowered Front Axle with custom ball joint spacers for a 4In front lift. 36" superswampers with 6in axle extentions. The truck was good but a weak IFS. I had to do everything the hard way because there was very little availible in aftermarket stuff. Vehicle is for sale now. The Claws were next but now my Bronco will be ridin high! The Ford IFS seems alot beefier to handle the claws.
Lift Laws: Pennsy is 27in and 29in from original bumper brackets. Ill just reweld them lower like before.
