    The flaps don't look so bad.

    So what are the tire & lift combo limits in our wonderful state?

    I hate mudflaps. They do look retarded and when I got my first ticket for not having them I just rigged up some lame hangers and got the ticket signed off, they were back off 10 mins after I got home.

    here is the lift and tire combo in NJ...
    GVW
    0-4500 7" above stock max 35's
    4501-7500 9" above stock max 36's
    7501-10000 11" over stock max 38's

    now those numbers are the door height..
    so my truck with 38's is 8400GVW for the 3rd option...
    so 22" stock door height (they tell you what your stock height was) allows me to be at 33"

    so 38's and 7" lift would be it... now I have 6" front leafs and my hawgs on 12" wide rims are 38.4" thus they say that is ok... now my door is at 32" and once the leafs settle a bit im going to lift the front a bit.. new shackles to get the door to 33"
    my tires rub like a mo fo and I cut alot.. even cut the cutout fender flares!!! but gotta cut more... /forums/images/graemlins/grind.gif /forums/images/graemlins/hack.gif


    I am going to narrow down the mud flaps.. I think they are like 26" wide and my tire is 14" true width... so I will take 5" off of each side.. but they must stick out the side to cover the tire.. I thought of taking them off once I pass inspection.. but guess Im gonna leave them on due to not wanting rocks to hit peoples windshield... /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif

    FJ-80 = $300 expensive but the wife did not want me to use PVC even though it was cheaper...
    now since my truck has gone on the road and I still have stuff to do to the truck I havent hooked up the snorkel yet... But I plan on it by summer!!!! /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif
