So now that I have the truck, I need to start getting all the parts in order for when I get home. It currently has 9r 22.5 tires on it. Any suggestions for replacements? Also I have to shorted one drive shaft. When I was home I called around and found a place that does that. My question is, would it be better to shorten both, or have one normal lenth and a really short one? Thanks,

i think rear shaft is 60% and front is 40% of lenght. driveshaft shop should be able to tell you. if you change only one shaft your angles maybe off. if you change both lenghts you will have to relocate center bearing bracket. if you change tire sizes it may change engine rpm and speedometer. need to drive and see what rpm engine is at running at speed you want to go.
