Yeah big tires will be the last step well after everything else is taken care of. 33's are fine for what I want to do with it for now.

I have a 8lug HD44, pass side drop, and a matching geared D60 here that keep giving me sad looks and saying "uuussseee meeee" but for now they are just taking up space. I bit much for the pair ($400) and the D60 came with completely empty drums (surprise!) so a few more hundred in a disc brake conversion would be optimal.

I just wanna get it going with the 1/2 ton running gear because I need to have a dang truck! I'm missing out on all the great junk I could be hauling home!
