Thanks for the comments John. I have lifted a few ifs and solid axle vehicles before and decided I want to keep the suspension on this one near stock for now so I can drive it harder without breaking things. I have a set of 30s and 31.5s available and am trying to decide what can fit without lifting. I would like the clearance of the bigger tires, but they are much heavier so I worry about over stressing the front end.

Not committed to welding the front; just wondering if these trucks are strong enough to handle it. If I need to turn, I can always just unlock one hub... This one was super cheap and is beat up, so not too concerned about hacking it up a bit.

It will be 99% off pavement, so I don't need to retain road manners.
