The 2001 will be a better axle, the CAD in the earlier ones can be problematic. With 44's I would not run the unit bearings from either.

Nope, front axle has no disconnect. Only way to accomplish this is to put lock-out hubs on but, they are not available for the 1500. Have to go to a solid axle 2500 or 3500 to accomplish lock-outs.

Getting closer to having the hoods welded shut from the factory!

Wondered when the auto makers would find a loop-hole.

10-13? Those are heavy tires and the lift will not help either. If going that big on tires don't forget to upgrade your brakes, you might want to stop in a hurry sometime.

Wonder what the load rating is on it in the down position. First steer to step on it would probably be on the ground. Could see it toasted in a hurry at the lumber yard also.

Don't have to worry about it in Iowa, $25 fine plus court cost. At least the fine is cheaper than for tinted front seat windows!
