    Looking good.But I think you should have went with a taller tire.Maybe a 37 or even a 38.Just too much empty wheel wells.Just my thought.Brady

    Still on 1/2 ton sticks. The wheel wells look big because that truck was a rust bucket. There is 5 inches that was rust through at the top of the rear wheel opening that was cut out. the front lost 3. Even with the front axle moved forward I proably have a scrub problem. Will see for sure when I get it on a ramp this week.
    The 32's lasted me almost 5 years. I'll be riding on these for probably just as long.
    Just checked the before mesurements...I gained just under 4 inches at the transfer case skid /forums/images/icons/smile.gif Under the rear diff I have as much clearence as a 14 bolt on 38's.

    Well where I was scrubbing on the 32's it would mean cutting a hole though the floor if the Zero rates offest to the front don't fix the problem and the one inch body lift.
    MAN it's big!!!!!!!! It's 7 feet tall! I can stand on my tip toes and look over the lady's 79 and the Bed rail on the 75 is only a few inches below my chin. I can look out my passenger window and see the semi driver withou ducking down now LOL.
