Why don't you just do it on the back?

Just checked the sticker on the door with all the truck info on it, says my axle is a "97", so I checked further and found that a "97" axle is a 4:10 ratio..does this mean I don't have to re-gear/axle swap to run 33"-35" tires??? If so, this is freakin awesome!

Hmm. How would a hitch fit in the front? I've seen it done before but what all is involved?

Don't run bigger than a 33 man. There's no sense in it.

Later y'all. I'm out. Keep it cool in here...

What engine do you have? I would go at least 4.56 on 33's. 4.10 would work though. It would just be slower, etc. I'm sure you already know the side effects

Oh well just do that. It would be so much easier then building your own mounting system. And you could use it for a portable winch! lol
