    First thing you want to do is put a for sale sign on that 1500 and go buy a 1ton.

    Then use the 1 ton to pull around an old Chevy truck that you built into a dream mud bogger.

    Well, if you really want to take that truck and build a good mud truck out of it that you also drive daily, here is what I would do.



    Put a small lift on it. 5 inches, 7 inches, whatever. Then run an appropriate size Super Swamper under there.



    Regear your axles to match the tires and while you are at it, put a Detroit locker in the rear. Lock the front if you can afford it. If not, no big deal.



    Make sure the engine is in good shape and runs well.



    Honestly, I went through all kinds of crap in my Dodge when I just had 35's on it. You can really hammer down and just fly through mud. I saw a Dodge on 35's win a competition once, it was the stock class and he slaughtered everybody else.

    It was probably yours, wasn't it? Besides little stuff, that pretty much nails it. But who am I to go behind DJ and say what is right/wrong?

    On that note: Don Thuren's trac bar. The typical 7" sj/dc combo. Atlas springs, posi-lok, 1-ton steering. Unless he wants to get really serious and do an axle swap, hydro a$$ist................the list could go on forever. Just depends on how much time and $$$ you want to dump into it.

    :withstupid: You can definitely drop some money on it... and what's fun is when you modify something, you have to compensate somewhere else by modifying another thing. And so on and so forth until the truck is totally redone. :D:
