    Very Nice!!

    That makes a huge difference on how it looks! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    What rims did you use, what are the specs and where did you get them?

    Yes, I'd like to know what backspacing you're using. Is it 2 3/4"? If so, could you snap a head-on pic looking at the grille of the truck...I wanna see how much the tires stick out in the front. Not that it matters, I guess, since I already have the rims, I'm stuck with using them after I swap in my D44. I've got the 2 3/4's mounted on the 14 bolt and the tires line up pretty well with the fenders...I can only imagine how much they'll stick out on the front. Thanks.

    By the way...nice looking 'burb.

    i got them from 4wheel parts they are their black steel, they are 16x10, im not sure about the backspacing, ill have to check, and ya ill take a head on pic tomorrow.


    thanks for the compliments. im happy with the result, my next feat will be to put a bigger set of tires, maybe a 36x14, or a 38x14.

    and a 3" body or more spring lift. O and the custom bumpers i been talking about for ages! o then onboard air. lol
