My '79 Chev had 6" springs 1" ORD body lift and 38"x12.5 TSLs with minimal rubbing on the front untrimmed fenders.

jesus do you write your highshcool papers like this too? my guess is theres tons of other shit on your truck that you need to fix before you make a trade for 38" tires and snap your axles. not to mention your still on stock gears. best case scenario you only snap an axleshaft and can find another if you save up your lunch money.

How wide are the beadlock rims?, what is the backspace? ( distance from back edge of rim to the face that sits against the studs ) As for the ten bolts
standing up to 38" tires, They won't tolerate much abuse, on or off road. If you excersize good judgement with the skinny pedal, they can last a while.
( brakes are on the overworked end, though ) If you are planning to get aggressive off road, I'd stay with 35" And wait for bigger axles to go to 38"

Lighten up ...... that was NOT FLAMMING at all did you even read any of it??


So to answer the question, .......

you have a 1/2 ton truck with stock gearing, If you want to build it bigger your going to need srtonger axles.

You said your 16 and your "fuonds are low"..... I've been in those shoes and looking back I wish I would have kept my truck in good reliable shape while collecting parts to build it bigger.....

i would have to agree, collect parts as they come along, you will save alot more money in the long run. i know its cool to have some big tires on your rig but it wont be so cool when its sittin in the driveway at home broke down until you can afford to put a bigger axle in there.
