might be able to swing $300, but it'd be a stretch, and if I can do it myself, I'd sure like to have a lower ratio rear end....

skoolies are expensive! $300.00 is only 2 tanks of fuel. If the rear end swap increases fuel economy, it might pay for itself in realatively short order in the fuel you save.

Mixing Radials and Bias-plys:

Read Jarlaxle's reply above. He stated that he had radials on the REAR and bias-plys up front.

In a tire site, I read that if radials are mounted on only one axle with the other axle using a different construction of tire, they radials MUST be mounted ONLY on the rear axle.

Could someone confirm this with a web link?
The tool storage is nice, but where do I put the bed?
