straight up yes.

my 5 bfgs, 4 with procomp wheels and 1 on a stock rim traded for 4 35in grabber red letters on 17in procomp wheels, with 2 35in grabber short course tires on procomp rims for spares.

dont mean to toot my own horn about these, sorry but im really excited

not looking forward to dd'ing these with 4.10s though. looking to be about 3-4 weeks till i can get the 8.8 done. i think ill save the disk conversion for another day just to save time and money right meow.

if i plan all this right, and time it correct i should be able to take the bed off, and swap in my chevy 64s, drop hangers, and new axle all in one go. do it all at once just like the front.

yup, sounds like a good idea, you dont want to be taking the bed off multiple times.. if I were you Id probably paint the frame under the bed while you have it off. Im probably going to do mine when I don F31s or something in the future. 35"s will suck for DD, I think probably no mater what lol :P your going with 4.56? or 4.88?

me too. not like we have to worry about rust alot here in cali, but undercoat is something nice to have.

diff covers for the 8.8:

ruffstuff:
http://www.ruffstuffspecialties.com/catalog/88DCOV.html

of SOLID:
http://www.solidaxle.com/productcart...4&idcategory=7

kinda leaning towards the solid cover.. ruffstuffs will be stronger id bet, but always require modification for the ring gear to fit, plus solids is cheaper.

Ruffstuff definitely looks stronger but I'd hit up the solid one too. Personally

hes cutting them for 35"s.

Id do solid too, I personally like ruffstuff better, but solid is cheaper :P

yeah Im not too worried about MPGs on my truck, Ill just be adding more weight, and might go to 33"s in the future, but that might be awhile, Id probably regear as well.
