Nothing really just got some new wheels and tires. Then decided to do a rear steer.

Thats a 44 on the left.

That is ridiculous how much bigger the 49 looks than the 44. They both look like balloons. What size wheel is that?
I like the cab; nothing cooler than seeing old sheetmetal out on the trail.

Those are 8 lug wheels you're running currently?

Are those CCKW knuckles, spindles, and hubs? If so, what's the plan for matching 8 lug wheels to 6 lug hubs?

There the old 2.5 GM outers. The wheels already have the rockwell pattern.

I've had it out 2 times with the 49's on it. The second time out I broke a rear axle go figure. I have some spares but I need to get this thing done.

Sweet man, like the 49's. Like the rear steer 14 bolt/ GMC 2.5 also, around me no one has a use for the GMC 2.5s, this might be it.

Buddy of mine uses them in hes river recovery rig. Do you think there are any front short side axles to be had? I bought a complete front axle for $150.00 so.
