    Felt like 3” wasn’t enough so I decided to go up to 14”.

    July 10th my transmission started shifting weird, pulled the pan to find this. :eek:

    4.30s and 40s don’t get along. 5.29s are in order.

    14” still isn’t high enough to clear the tires I want so a body lift is in order.

    New pan shipped today and a return label has been mailed. I have my midget this weekend so it’ll be next week before I can get this buttoned up. I’m praying it continues to shift smooth with this thorough service I’ve done. Fingers crossed.

    Close to it, the size was 285/75/18. It can vary because some tires run bigger or smaller

    Yep. Were those trail grapper m/it's? Any wheel spacers?

    Love the width on the 40's! Probably about 15 wide?

    Yep, trail grapplers in for the win. Lol. With 285s you HAVE to run wheel spacers to clear SPCs arms, stock arms are close but they clear.

    15.50 wide with 2” wheel spacers. :muscleflexing:
