I would be more concerned about the 35 in the rear. But with the type of wheeling that you like, Your rig will be set up very well now.
My rear is a Dana 44.

It's all about HOW you wheel. My buddy has been wheeling 37's on a D30 w/ chromoly shafts for 10yrs. And he wheels tough terrain first in CA and now here in CO!

Sorry Chad, count me out. Since I'm on vacation still I think I'm going to take the time to re-locate/weld my spring perches. The springs look like a damn banana since going belly up with the NV241.

It's a pita but well worth it. I did both the frame and axle perches while I had everything ripped to hell. The difference in ride and handling is amazing.

Hi All, I'm new around here but I'd love to join this run. Finally getting my lift and tires installed this Thursday, so assuming there are no issues I'll be itching to take it out somewhere!

Just had to say that I hadn't run the North Fork trail in a few years, until yesterday. I couldn't believe how washed out the decent from Wise Mountain was. That trail is still totally passable, but much more difficult than it was a few years ago. You guys should have a good time.

When you get off at I70 and Morrison Rd. take a right then an immediate left. then go about 1/4 mile and there's a gas station on the right and the Wooly Mammoth park and ride on the left. See you there.
WOOHOO!!!!
