    If you've got a stock truck with a D60 up front, please do me a favor: I need to know how wide a truck is from outside tire to outside tire. Any truck will work, so long as it's got stock rims/tires on it, and you can bust out the tape measure and tell me the total width. ASAP if ya can, please. Thanks gents.

    my D60 is stock width, I can give ya a WMS-to-WMS measurement if you want... then you could just add the WMS-to-outside-of-tire measurement for whatever tires/rims you are running...

    Stock chevy 60 is 69.5 wms-wms. Lock out to lock out is like 82". I want to say around 78" for outside of tire to outside of tire. I measured one awhile back but cant remember the exact inches

    I know 69.5 is the WMS. I need to know what it is with factory rims/tires. If its 82", that'll work - I think the limit to go on a car carrier is 83".....

    It should fit on a standard car trailer (82"-83" between the fenders).......I hauled a '77 1-ton with stock 16" steel wheels and 235/85R16 tires home on a trailer that had 82" between the fenders with no problems. As mentioned above, the lockout hubs are the widest part and could cause a problem if the trailer is a little on the narrow side. If that's the case bring a couple of 2x4's to drive over which will put the hub above the height of the fenders.

    No, no, no.... I mean, on a CAR CARRIER. A 9 car, over-the-road, hauler. I'm gathering info to get a quote to ship a truck across country. This would be a lot easier if the guy I'm trying to buy it from would be snappier about getting me info, but it seems to be taking too long.


    Right now, I'm thinking the only way to keep this 'move' even remotely affordable is to take off the TSL's and put factory rims/tires on it - only problem that presents is where do the TSL's go during the shipping, 'cause te shippers are telling me they charge extra for that crap....

    No bed. It's got a flatbed with toolboxes. And they have something against cargo strapped to an auto in shipping.

    I heard you got lost looking for the GMC dealership. I forgot there is one across the bay in Daphne. You find the pull truck yet?

    Nope..... I think I'm gonna roam the country, pressing every single OnStar button I see until I win a free truck. Sounds like a plan.


    Now, head over to John's and tell me what his stock tired D60 measures, outside to outside. ;)

    No stockers here, the crew cab has 35's and the D60 for the Blazer is a DRW version. :D
