I run full widths and love it, the cost of putting a rear 60 in is very minimal, they can be had for 100 bucks or so. then gear it and lock it and be done and dont worry to much. you will have to have some big ass wheel spacers to make it look normal if you keep it full width and keep the stock rear. another thing is having to have 2 sets of wheels, 8 lug for the front and 6 for the rear. i personally would keep everything 8 lug but thats just my opinion. i also like having the full floating rear, if i break a shaft just pull it and stick a big ass magnet, pull the broken part out and stick a new one in. i run chromoly's front and rear so hopefully i wont have to worry about that. as far as cutting it down thats all personal opinion, somewhat like wheel bases it can help you sometimes and hurt you other times. i know that front axle inside and out so if you have any questions just let me know.Reckelhoff said:I just picked up a hp 44 out of a f250. I have been comtemplating to cut it down or run full width.
