How much lift will I need??? :sign0020:
I guess it would be a 60 inch lift, , new axles, new transmission, and a new rear diff that would not buckle trying to turn those.
Holy Jeez. If that fell over...no more Enkeiavalanche :lol:
Maybe just a level kit? lol
You think??? It's a place by me called Giant Tire. They do all the BIG truck tires in the area..
If you just put 2 on the back then you would get better gas mileage because you will be going down hill all the time. :sign0020:
ahh i think a 10in lift and about a 12in wheel spacer should do the trick lol.
So if Money is tight, just remove the rear box and the front fenders... be careful in the turns. May need to shave the front bumper a bit! :great:
Oh the chromed step bars will have to go...
im thinking just get some real long axles and do it that way.
good grief... lol
what we can do is take and earthmover unbolt the sub frame do some cut and weilding and than take your small truck and modifide it to fit. :sign0020:
I think 1 of those tires would exceed the weight limit on the avalanche...... let alone not being able to fit it in the bed...... might be able to 1 on a trailer and tow it.
Might be fun to use one of those for tubing in the lake, then again...... it would sink the boat.
@donyms. That was good :rofl:
I want to know where he plans to put the full-size spare. ( Actuatlly, perhaps I DON'T want to know!)
This might actually be a frugal investment. Once the tread wears down you can still recycle even a single tire into about 10 years worth of tires for another vehicle.
See? Makes perfect sense.
I guess if you had a fully equipped 3500 Dually you could put "1" of the Cat 797 tires on a trailer and move them to the location where they are needed:
The Caterpillar 797B uses six 5,300 kg (11,680 lb) Michelin 59/80R63 XDR radial tires.
11,680 pounds is just under the towing limit if a 3500 Light Duty pickup.
Oh and each tire is about 42.5k each
Whatever it would require would be worth it.:lol:
on a serious note. Those are fricken huge:gasp:
