as promised i got some more pics. didnt get any burnouts on the skinnys yet:flipoff2: but i will soon. what i have are some pics of the new wheel studs required to fit the wheels spacers to fit the new shoes. i had old AP 3/4" spacers, which had longer studs that had a 3/4" shoulder. my spacers showed up and only had about 1/2" or less spot to hide the stud. that didnt work. so thanks to pirate i found the right ones. after 4 stores and a headache i managed to get all the shiit i needed.
here we go
first pic shows the old studs
next shows the old next to new

the rear 1.5" spacers came from advantage tire in meddy

the white runner is my bud Gabe's. he runs mcgrew with us. 85 SR5 runner with 37" rockers.

these are the last ones.
my digi tire gauge gave up the ghost today so i ended up with about 7psi instead of the intended 4 or so. these tires show some decent flex even brand new. the rocks were slimy and traction was slim. no breakage but i need some more trimmins on dem fenders. the rear bumper needs trimmed a bit too it seems.

jerod, this is a little spot close to my place.
if you want to check it sometime we can, but no net location info.
the area is small, but can easily destroy parts. i like to shakedown out there.

the tires seems to perform alright, the moss and slime are a serious traction detriment.
i got denied on a couple obstacles i normally climb out there. although i got a bit if vid with some smoke off the new tires, maybe when Ty helps me with this new PC i can upload some footage of my denial :flipoff2:

not really much power loss on the street, i used to barely use 4th, now i just cant, at least not without a 10% downhill grade and a tailwind :flipoff2:

its not that awesome, and it is hilarious to think about the poor bastard that gets stuck behind me. :flipoff2:
i have 4.30s now, going to 4.88s shortly. hoping for a screamin' deal in a 3.4L to land on my doorstep.
UPS says the 4.7s will be here tomorrow.
i am not terribly concerned with streetability at this point.

Yeah, not awesome for you, but it is for me! :D You are duel cased right? Are you 2.28-2.28?

Wait, I just did the math... 4.30's and 42's is like 4.10's and 40's Hehehehe I can't imagine 40's... Is that a 20 or a 22 pushing that thing?

on the trail its fine like 97% of the time. the gearing will fix that.
