Re: 3/4 Ton 4x4 Duramax Questions..

Uh... where did you get 315/75/16's that only measured 32.5 inches?? That particular size measure 35x12.50R16!

Just curious. [img]images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

Re: 3/4 Ton 4x4 Duramax Questions..

Tires are often not as tall as the measurements stated on the sidewall. Especially once they have been mounted on your truck. After my 33x12.5x15 BFG ATs were mounted, they measured around 31" tall. My 35" Wild Countries measure around 33.5". The only tires that I have heard are true to their size are Super Swampers.

I've heard RCD and Fabtech are the leaders right now as having the best designed suspension lifts, especially for the newer vehicles. I've seen a few HD's around with the RCD lift and they look really good.

Re: 3/4 Ton 4x4 Duramax Questions..

Not trying to blow smoke at ya, but where did you hear this about Fabtech? So far I have heard NOTHING regarding Fabtech's 4x4 kits. I know of NO ONE that has one on their Chevy.

Just wondering if you can post some examples, or maybe some pics or something.

Re: 3/4 Ton 4x4 Duramax Questions..

Don't blame you for questioning me. I thought the same about Fabtech as well. I have not seen any 4x4's with the Fabtech kit, only pictures. I heard the RCD and Fabtech kits were now the front runners from a reputable 4x4 shop. They recommended RCD first though.

Cool. One of these days, I'd really like to see the Fabtech kit on a truck just to see how it stacks up against RCD, Rancho, et. al.

Re: 3/4 Ton 4x4 Duramax Questions..

Thank's CodyZ71
I also installed Bully Dog's "Dyno Dominator", with 3 power settings.
Stock setting with 300hp & 520lbs, "Towing setting " with 370hp & 600lbs, and "performance setting" with 410hp & 700lbs.
With the ZF6 trans and set to the highest setting, I can snip the tires going through 4th. I mostly leave it on the stock setting but it's fun to play around with the others,
