    You aint gonna find a 40 in a 12.50 width. Yer gonna be in the 14.50 and up zone. To run with the 40 dawgs, yer lookin at a 3" body lift and some Bushwacker cut out fender flares along with yer lift at the very least. Even that prolly wont be enough to stuff the 40's. Then the gears, then the weak links in the drive train if yer gonna let the dawgs run off road..........
    35's to 40's is a big step. both in size, mods and cash.

    To really have fun with the 40's, Dana 60's front n rear would be my choice.

    I've actually got a 502 BB(race ready, used to run the 1/4 strip) and a Dana 60 accessible to me if I really wanted to leave my tranny sittin on the side of the road. But, I don't want/need that much power in my burb, so I'll stick with the good 'ol SBC 350. I am thinking bout snaggin me a Dana 60 though

    But mine came from the factory with it...... : )
    Same combo used in the work horse and top kick gas chassis.
    8MPG, up hill, down hill, sideways, towing, empty.........
    but it sure is fun to drive, 'specially pullin up next to the diesel boy's on the hills.

    Although I wouldnt mind a D60 conversion up front. I've got a '83 HD D44 (8 lug) sitten in my garage but thats goin under my Samurai with the 14 bolt sitting next to it.
