Question for you guys, as you do or do not know my 1995 was written off into the Sea To Sky Wall (Carnage section). Well today I just bought a 1990 to start doing a swap with, but this time I want to go BIGGER... BIGGER THAN BIGGER!!! And since I have never installed a Solid Axle, I look to you guys, where does one find one, and what is the approx. cost?

Thanks crew.

RIDING AGAIN SOON!!! :D

those look like full width axles, probably d60?

what size tires do you want to run? 35-37 is good for a toy IMO

Yeah, I am thinking 35-38. I was running 33's on my 95 which was great with the chasis lift, but as soon as I did the 3" suspension lift, well they just look a little tiny now. I am thinking Chasis lift and about 4-6" suspension with around 38's.

screw the body lift and tub the fenders a bit. If you do it right it can look really clean. plus the lower certer of gravity is always nice.

I've got maybe 3-4" suspension at most and I've got room for 40's easily up front. Flatdeck in the back, so anything could fit back there.

38's are pushing it for toy axles depending on what you want to do with it.. Mud? easy trails? hardcore crawling?

Play out both worlds, Mud 40% Trails 60%

So... yeah maybe 35's. *shrug*

Just know my big mass beefy 33's look the small. :(

Reece seems to do alright with his 38.5 boggers and 5.0L. but he runs mud mostly so the wheels are usually straight ahead which is pretty easy on birfs. he blows up a lot of R&Ps though

Unless you went with the chromo longfields I think you'd break a lot of birfs on the trails with 38+


I'm worried about breaking mine with 36's. but I'm also welded up front. If you leave the front open I think you'd have no problems if you upgraded to o-fields

i dono guys first thing i would do with that style of truck is put a 2" body in atleast, everything is soo difficult to change on it, unless your going to a small block and then youll need one anyways

body lift sucks asss
all it does is rape ur body mounts, I can understand a 1" lift to make it easier to clean, anything bigger is stupid

WHAT YOU TALKING ABOUT WILLIS?!?!?!

I bought the Toyota, so the main project for now is to start ripping apart the old Tri-Pod and seeing what all we need, what all we can sell, and what all we can donate. But you have peaked my interest.
