• PlowSite Homepage Upgrade

    Hello again PlowSite community,

    I wanted to post a quick note to let you know that the homepage of PlowSite will experience a major upgrade next week. We’re always looking for ways to improve our users’ experience on the site, and felt that this upgrade was needed and long overdue.

    With this upgrade, you’ll now see the top trending posts as soon as you visit PlowSite, and these will be updated throughout the day. You can also easily access videos and photos. As always, we encourage you to include videos and photos in your own posts to share with your fellow PlowSite users.

    Be assured that all of the forums, content and data that you’ve been accustomed to will remain intact, as will all current site features. You’ll also be able to easily access the full list of forums directly from our new homepage.

    We’re excited to bring you this change, and look forward to hearing your feedback.

    Thanks, PlowSite Team

Yeah, a friend of mine had an 87 1/2 ton with 4" life, 35" BFG Mud Terrain Tires, and a 300 horsepower 350 crate motor. That truck was FUN! You could get it stuck, but would have to try at it. The 4" lift with those tires was a good combo, got a little bit of rubbing, but only when the suspension compressed at full turn. Fender trimming took care of that too. As for the headers, I've only used the prefabbed ones, but if you have good experience welding, I don't see why to not go with those. Just keep in mind that if you don't get a good seal at all 16 joints, it's gunna leak and tap and be annoying as hell. Good luck.

A 2" body lift would totally fix the problem. The tires rubbed right on the very back/bottom of the fender wells. Keep in mind that you can use 4" blocks in the back, but must use new springs in the front to lift it, as front blocks are not safe. New shocks and some sort of steering correction are also things you'll need. If you don't want to go with the body lift, you could just trim the fenders, or get some bushwacker cuttout fender flares. Have fun!
