    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
    shows the spacer relief

    alright, enough of the tech except
    the new studs are dorman 610-073 napa 641-1110 (1/2"x20 tpi x 2 3/8")
    the front 2" spacers came from all pro off road in hemet
    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.
    here we go.

    first pic is some rock kissing
    next is insuing damage
    last is some rocker tire bulge (crappy pic i know< the rockers WORK though)

    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?

    my mini has an RE in it. w56 and stock duals.
    on the trail its fine like 97% of the time. the gearing will fix that.

    i would be glad to drag race you if you need to feel fast :flipoff2:
