JJohns Thanks, yea I won't be beating on it until I have her set up the way I want first! Right now trying to spend my money fixing her up, not fixing her!

InfernoGirl Yes you can cut down your body lift. and as long as you go easy on the gas you'll probably be fine with the 35's on your stock axles. Lots of folks run 35's on a D35 for a long time. It doesn't sound like you'll be beating on it, so it should be alright. Just don't come back and yell at me if it breaks, okay....

Couple of quick lift questions

1. Bought my 06 with a 3" bl the PO had installed, with the intention of removing it as soon as I saved up the money for a suspension lift. The question is if I pull the bl can I cut them down to 1.25" with a band saw and just buy new grade 8 bolts to fit? Would that compromise the integrity of the bl, or should I just quit being a cheap a$$ and buy a brand new 1.25" bl?

2. I found a deal on skyjacker 4" lift with quick disconnects included, and the guy also said he would sell me a set of 5 35" general grabber tires at about 400 dollars cheaper than usual. The question is could I run 35" tires on stock axles for a couple of months while I saved up money for my ford 8.8 and lockers? I realize that to run 35's I should upgrade my axles but just wondering if I could get away with running them for a little while while saving up money. I am running 33's right now but would probably need to sell them to help offset some of the cost for the 35's. Also my rig is not a dd, me and the wife usual drive it on the weekends and on some short trips. Also I wouldn't want to regear since planning on upgrading axle in a couple of months, and the guy said that I should be okay since it's a 6 speed manual. Thanks in advance for any advice and thoughts
