Why not? Mine ran 13.1 2 years ago on 38s....

Taking out the rear block will more than likely level your truck...but if the rears too low I would add in a 1" solid block OUO makes one..dont do an alum block...they suck

This is a bit lower than your looking to go...but mines 4wd, and on almost 33" tires here

As far as actual HP numbers I have no idea. It don't snap your neck but.....It feels good.

Pahrump, how do you like those 420s'? I am looking to remove my rear block and do 20x10's with 305-50's... Did you use your factory u bolts or did you buy new shorter ones?

I bought some shorter ones cause without my rear block and bottom leaf the stock ones were too short...The 420s hooked pretty well...but only lasted me about 8000 miles...course some of that was premature wear...lol

I have long since changed that combo and even have a different 6.4 now...I rolled that black truck over here a few months back.
