    Default Who's Running A Waggy D44 Front?

    Who's running a Front D44, preferably a Waggy D44?

    If you are running one, can you please post a front-on picture?

    I'm trying to see what size wheel/tire/backspacing everyone is running to help me determine what to order.

    Thanks

    Please post a pic with what size tire/rim/backspacing you are running if you have any pics.

    Thanks.

    No, I'm trying to determine the BS that people are running up front so I can order my rims already. I've been researching for weeks and have almost come to a conclusion.

    Ford HP44 narrowed to Waggy width.
    Hummer rims recentered to 4 1/4" BS 38X12.50X16.5 TSL Super Swamper SX tires.

    First question is do you need to be able to cover them with a flare? If you run 10's you will need a 7" flare. If you run 8's you'll be good with a 4" We just installe a set of waggy d44's under my friends YJ with 8" wheels TJ stock flares won't cover down completly. I'm putting a waggy front and a chevy d60 under mine and I'll be running 10" wheels.

    Highlander, some states are different as far as fender coverage. To the best of my knowledge, MI doesn't require any coverage. I run 35x12.5 on 15x10's. My tires stick half way out with TJ flares.

    Yeah That's why I asked what he had to have. PA is bad about tires being covered, especially local cops looking to make there pay checks.
