    Sweet. I wish I had missed the Pats and Colts playoff game. My man Peyton really stunk it up. Damn those Pats. Tom Brady is not that good of a quarterback.

    Yea its a little different but I did want the track width to be as narrow as possible, they are taller than my old 40s so Im happy,

    Specs, its on a ORD flip with zero rate in the back, 52s up front with the overload, 3" body and it just got a new 60 and x over steering to go with the 52s. The 60 is a dodge unit that matchs my 14FF without the spacers so thats why it seems narrow

    The new Stealth K5. Big tires and radar absorbing paint, what else could you ask for.

    Good job Sapper, now you can squish your bad neighbor's Nissan.

    They tires are 15/39.5 so they are not skinny, James got used to his 14" wide rims. My rims are only 8.25 but hey double beadlocked with runflats im not complaining:D

    I'll second that. I think it looks very nice with those tires. I guess "skinny" is relative. I'll bet they're a lot wider than my 12.5:D

    Did you cut down your runflats? I assume you're running the mag runflats?

    13 3/4" Rims, not 14. And you know I am just giving you a hard time about it too. This truck is what has motivated me to take mine to the next level. I first seen the skunk when I was somewhat stock running my BIG TIRES (35's). Just think less than a year ago my truck was just another Jimmy and now it is a Jaw dropper.

    [tear]Thanks, Paul[/tear wiped][sniffle]

    No idea what you mean by cutting down the run flats, they are the mags though, i just bolted them together and put it all together.


    Anything for you James :waytogo:

    I've read where a lot of people on Pirate will cut off the tall "backbone" part of the mag run flat with a sawzall or bandsaw. The reason is to create more space between the tire and runflat so they don't make contact when air'd down. I was thinking of doing this on mine, just not sure if I need to or not.
