    Do a search on this "business". Go to www.pirate4x4.com and check around there for their opinions on that "business".

    Hint: take your money and go to Stazworks instead. :wink1:

    No. I've met Daniel, though he wouldn't remember. Even gave him a business card. Didn't seem too interested in building anything with any quality.

    It depend on how much you want them to stick out. Recentered hummer rims are only about 8.75'' wide so you might want a little more backspacing. I'am running 3.5'' and think its perfect but if you dont want it sticking out past the body 4.5'' of backspacing might be better. Also depends on your tire size because my 38.5-15.5-16.5 swampers balloon out causing them to stick out more. there are some pics down below( look at the end of my pics).

    Custom 6'' Deaver Springs in the front and 2'' in the rear with an ORD 4'' shackle flip. I love the way Deaver springs flex and there are 10 leaves per pack so no sagging after 3 years of hard abuse.
