Need some advice
Hey guys! Just about got the 85 back on her feet. Pictures to follow. I need to know whats the biggest tire I can run with the 7.5" rear end? I currently have 31's with the 4.11s. Will 33s overload it? I plan on doing the add-a-leaf/t-bar crank in addition to the 3" body lift already installed. My next item to address is a 3400 SFI swap, then a D30 swap along with probably a D44 rear(springover) and 35" boggers. I'll probably swap to a Beefed 700R-4 and an NP231 in the final stages before the SFAs and 35s, as I doubt the T-5 will take the added strain. Do these sound like good ideas? Would a ZR-2 rear axle take as much abuse as the D44? This will be a primarily off road truck, and the 3.4 will be stock except for a cold air intake and K&N, and I'll be running 4.10s with a Lock-Right rear and open front diff. I'm also working on the custom flatbed and a HD rear bumper, maybe an exhaust stack!(for added ground clearance) This truck will head up Rebel 4WD, a new off road club I am starting here in Ohio, and will showcase what an S-10 can be-so any suggestions you have will be appreciated because this forum is where it all began. So, Thanks to everyone who has or will participate, and keep the dream alive!
