    New brakes are bloody awesome, hummer rims are on, bumper is done, got the rear axle back to as close to center as I could with the bent spring. Thursday I'm going to be moving the front axle forward yet again about another 1.5-2" to get enough tire clearance at the firewall. With the new bumper I have all kinds of clearance in front of the tire now.

    Here is a pic of the wheels since they don't show up well in the above pics:

    New rear springs are shipping friday and will be here next thursday, put them on Friday.

    I will forever love your truck, and hate the old woman(was a woman right?) that reared you.

    Mud? Mud sucks!!! /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif I'm more of a trails and rocks guy myself, wheel base rules /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif But, uh, why did you say SHORTER mud holes? You don't think the truck can handle it eh??? /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    Esteban, I was wondering if you would notice that... I am, just needed something to run for BF03. I was paranoid on our last trip with my 16.5's blowing beads and didn't want to be that way again... So I through them on for now. Still looking for some 12 bolt rims though...

    So do you make ricers nervous when you pull up behind them at stop lights? /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Did you bypass the abs ?
    What did you do to your brakes ?

    What backspacing are you running with the hummer wheels ?

    Completely removed the ABS system and replumbed all the brakes. All new hardline. New master clyinder from ORU and there proportioning valve. Brakes are bloody awsome!

    3.75" back spacing.

    Here, this may help: http://www.industrialoffroad.com/crewcab.htm
