I am pretty new to off-roading, I know some [bleep], but you guys prolly know a hell of a lot more than me. What kinda truck or SUV do you think I should be looking at? I want something prolly with about a 6" lift and 35-37 inch tires, and atleast a 350. Other than that I am looking for ideas. Of and this is definately not for just show, it will get a pounding every weekend, i promise. thanks.
IFS is not made for rock crawling. It can handle up to about 35" tire. It can handle mud fine but there is no locker for the front so you can only have 3 wheels spinning all the time.
If you want a 350 then you will have to get a 1998 or older truck because they now put 327s in the new body style trucks. Which is still a good motor but some people will tell you different.
Actually they did make the old style still in 1999's but the half ton only came extcab short box... And they still made the old style in 2000 on 3/4hd's and 1 tons.
Also its a 325ci [img]images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]
Well I have a 99 SUV with 37's. No problems as of yet. I expect some down the road. If you want something to "pound" then get something just for that. Mine is a daily driver and is treated as such. I do love to get out and tear it up everyonce and a while. I just know the limitations.
Oh and 6" will not get you 37's unless you plan on pounding the fender a whole lot.
