One of the few trucks that wheel on here? Are you that new here or, is your head just so big your eyes are swelled shut?

You're right... that one pic of it covered in mud is just where I took a few buckets and threw them on it.

Usually when I'm out I'm INSIDE the truck... but next time I go I'll stop and take a pic just for you...

The same money? I think you need to go back and price a few things.

Maybe if you would have read the threads I posted you would have seen the one asking about 37's and larger on a 8.8 from pirate.

Did you build this? cause I've never seen someone that wants to pack small ass tires on a huge axle as bad as you do.

So I take it your new here or yet again our definition of wheeling is two different worlds. I am not talking about taking a muddy road home. This isn't a country song.

Mudding isn't wheeling and if you made it in 2wd its not even mudding. See above about the dirt road thing.

$125 for a rear axle $92 for a front. Why would I ever pick anything less?

I believe your exact wording was this isn't pirate, but on that note moat people on pirate remove 8.8's from their typical home (bronco/f150's) and throw them in the scrap pile with the ttb.

Those aren't 37's? I will taje an oversized axle to deal with your typical blown outer in a 44 on 37's.



That's what typically happens with d44's here and yes thats a 30 spline rcv.

They may rub your mudflaps. So trimming could be needed.

Take it apart and see for sure... no there isn't a black box to tell you everything you want to know like the internet is here to tell you how to wheel.

Two questions, What is your definition of wheeling? and Who on here really wheels like you do?

Yet again this isn't pirate, this thread isn't about 4x4, mudding or rock crawling it's about lifted trucks... if you're that hardcore maybe you need to go pirate... and stay.

So you just grabbed a set of stock axles? didn't regear? no disc brakes? no upgrades at all?

I see you did add that bitchin cover tho...

My words about this not being pirate was referring to you talking down on 2wd...

This is about rangers... not bronco's or f-150's

Guess they should have spent that money on a set of Branik U-joint axles instead of that birfield bullshit.

But then again I guess in your mind the ears would have broke right? shit happens.

My reply to you was deleted by admin... as well as several of your posts.

And since the last thing you said before this you went back and edited, the only advice I have for you is go be a pussy somewhere else

BTW... the only thing I've seen out of your truck is one jump... you're welcome to post up some pics of it doing something. to show us what your definition of wheeling is.

Wasn't too far... it was quoted in my post... which is why it was pretty pointless to edit.

Still waiting to see the pics of you "crawling, mudding and grinding with the best" like your sig said... till yesterday anyway.
