Welcome to the site,

I'm assuming you have a Chevy or a GM. Especially with the IFS and blown up rear end. Do a solid axle swap in the front and put that IFS lift up for sale of CL. You'll have to find a ford drivers drop axle or do a pumpkin flip on a chevy.

Make it better? What are your goals?
Daily driver, minor wheeling, or, rock monster?
I like the solid axle swap thing myself, but its $$$$!

Looks like a pro comp 6 inch, judging by the color and the fact that the upper control arms are dropped down.

What size tires are you wanting to run?

Easiest, would be to put a 14sf in and grab a few extra cv joints just incase. Not much you can do with the IFS front.

Or, continue to DD it and buy a toy as you said. It is difficult to turn your DD into a toy.

Otherwise, SAS that beach and have fun.


Edit..when the hell did b i t c h start getting edited??

315s are actually considered 35s. They dont measure out to that but thats what they advertise.

For a 40" tire you'll be wanting to get a 14 bolt full floater and a d60 front with some upgraded steering and at least 4" of lift with some major fender trimming I've got 37s with 3-1/2" of lift roughly soon as i get money i'll be going up to a d60 with at least 42s

Tried to get you a pic but it won't post...
