    4" lift and 37's.

    With the opened up fenders it clears 40's on 9.75" wide rims without rubbing, but the truck only has 4.10s. I think I like these on here.

    No deal. :D

    I've been back and forth on what tires and rims I want to put on it, and finally decided on the 37x13.00x16 Boggers on 16x10 rims.

    I think they look good on it... not too wide so I don't have to worry about flares, and not too tall for 4.10s with a big block.

    I calculated up what I have into the rims which were new in the box and tires that I had gotten with less than 150 miles on them and it was $700 cash and a 14-bolt axles in trade. That's actually the most I ever spent on rims and tires... but considering the tires cost 250 a piece new and the rims cost about 500, I suppose it's not too bad for basically a new set of rims and tires, hand mounted by myself last night with a screwdriver and Pam cooking spray.

    Duder,

    That is a sweet looking rig, and the tire rim combo makes it look tuff!

    When did you paint her black? That's the best thing you've done I'd say. Good to see you're sticking with the stepside, we can always use more of them.:D

    lol, that picture with the mud on it is great! Do you have any full screen shots of it when it was all caked up like that? It would make a great background.

    I love steppy sides :D. I guess that why I have one.

    View attachment 29395

    That is a picture of the truck when I first got it. Wow does the body look a hell of a lot better.



    Oh yeah as far as Mountain Explorer's stepside I like it. Its a good look.
    I plan on getting rid of my A/Ts and getting some Trxus M/Ts as soon as I am finished roasting my existing A/Ts :D Also my step side under the wrench right now and has no front clip. Soon I will have it back together and painted again. :laugh:

    How much lift is it that you have? Looks like a 4 suspension and 3 body maybe?

    you see enough lifted trucks (which I know allan) does your good at guessing.

    btw... I dont know how you do it, find such sweet tires on tires and wheels! the 77s look awesome on that truck. What brand of wheels are those?

    Eagle Alloys. They were $300 for the set of rims and all still brand new in boxes with centercaps never touched.

    The 37" Boggers were $400 and a 14-bolt rear end from a truck I parted out and had $20 remaining into the motor and both axles. The Boggers were mounted once and used maybe 150 road miles and still look brand new.

    I guess by what I looked up, without tax all 4 rims and tires bought new separately should cost $1549.96

    $700 is alot for me, but still under half of new. Usually I buy a whole vehicle to get the tires I want though.

    You aren't going to get anything from Allan that would work as a background. He needs a new camera! With all the interesting things he sees and does, he comes back with sub-MP pics. So sad.

    I don't have anything that resembles "quality" remember?

    Isn't that picture good enough? Though you figure this is coming from me a person who is just now starting to own CD's and DVD's. I still consider my digital camera "new" since it was bought new... I guess I forget that it was bought new about 5 years ago. But if I buy something new... to me it's always new. :haha:
