Well since I committed to the 6x6.5” lug pattern I had to get some wheels to match.
Picked up some trophy truck take offs with some 39” BFG’s already mounted. Has me thinking I should just skip 37’s and go straight to 39’s lol.
It’s a lot more weight but the only weak point I’ll have left will be the 7.5” front diff. Hoping if I take it easy in the rocks, I can keep the front diff alive for a while. Still not set on jumping to 39’s but might do some mocking up with them for the meantime.

Saw that on insta. I'm agreeing with everyone else. If nothing else just use them to clear, and stick with 37s. If you find 37s aren't enough then you're already set up when you wear them out and can bump up to the 39s.

maybe worth looking into what it would take to run a Tundra 5.7L front diff 8.7"... thought about it myself at one time but never put any real leg work into said...

I bet stellar built on IG would have answers to this.
Not sure who that is. Has he done something like this?
I thought you scored a 9" currie center diff
I do have one but it won't be the easiest thing to build an entire front end around it right now. I already have a pretty limited budget and time to build so I have to take things one at a time. Just the CAD work alone is going to be a lot of work and time that I really don't have right now. I'm saving that project for another time, and that time will come eventually.

That 9" is a whole front half of your truck. Completely understand about the time and money. Glad you'll be able to play with it in its different stages.

What 35 spline axle shafts are in that mock up 9"? Are they a 6x5.5 lug pattern?
The axles are the Currie Performance Axles with 6x5.5" lug pattern. 65" WMS.

Also a new build update video for those that actually give a shit.


Watched that the other day. It's crazy watching how much the body flexes around with all the supports cut out. Going to be fun watching it all come together. I got all this sound deadening in my trunk for you too but you're a ways off from needing it.

Ditto, sans the sound deadening

Eventually I want to do the same, doors and floors mostly

Did my roof. It was a pain in the ass and my driver side seat belt still doesn't work quite right. Definitely helped wind noise though. Got other plans for the interior eventually when I've got motivation, I'll strip the interior when I handle that.

Insulating the door skins helps with noise, heat and preventing lock solenoid failure. I'd like to replace my front speakers while I'm at it. Just the 5.25" midrange, I'll keep the factory tweeters if I can.

Insulating the roof would be amazing. What did you use? I would also consider a few costs of clear coat outside But first, the hood needs to be re-painted to match the body..

KILMAT 50 mil 50 sqft Car Sound... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0751G6TMV?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share

I used about half a box for the roof and then I bought 80 mil for the floor that I didn't use.
