I would not run a D44 with 38's and a healthy SBC....I was just looking on boyceequipment.com at the rebuilt dana 60 rear and 44 front, with 5.13's and a detroit in the rear. Probably going with that since I dont have any fabrication equipment, except for what my neighbor will let me borrow. Maybe 38's, check book willing.
I agree....he was just talking 36" max a few lines up when asked what tire size....I would not run a D44 with 38's and a healthy SBC....
Additionally, I think you would find better deals then Boyce, here on this board.
Hard to offer the correct advice when you keep changing your mind...Hmmph!Maybe 38's, check book willing.
True, but not all 14b FF are the same...the newer ones appear to have more of a trench digger look that the earlier ones. The exact mfg. dates I am not sure of....I am just going by a visual on them though.This is a copy /paste from a post I made last week
REAR AXLES (from centerline to bottom)
Ford 8.8" 5 13/16" completely un-modified
GM 14b FF 6 3/8" mild shave (saving 14th bolt entirely)
for a net loss of 9/16" (of ground clearance at lowest point)
Did you say Dana 44s (as in two?) and 39.5" swampers in the same sentence?I am definitely a flip-flopper. I just bought the Dana 44s from Mopar, and 39.5" Super Swampers from a friend on 17" wheels. I cant pass up a good deal. Might have to do some fender fab, but I think it should work.
I figured with the amount of tools I would have to buy, my experience level, and my lack of patience, it would be difficult to buy an older axle set and rebuild it. Or at least that was the excuse I gave my wife.
I will get some pictures on here of the project soon. Thanks for all the help.
Just to let you know...those exuces won't work here.......we've all already used 'em!I figured with the amount of tools I would have to buy, my experience level, and my lack of patience, it would be difficult to buy an older axle set and rebuild it. Or at least that was the excuse I gave my wife.
