    I believe the tires ae 315. There was another thread that he had going that talked about tires and wheels. I am not sure on the lift though. I would like to know too.

    Looks very sharp man! Good Work!

    I see slee sells the rear 1.5" Spacers and the fronts are discontinued. How did you space the front springs?

    That tire size equates to: 35x12.5x16 right? If so, how are the gears with that combo?

    Did you use both the correction bushings AND the plates or how did you adress that?

    Thanks

    I frist found front spacers for downy rear spaces from a toy runner that were the same width as the front springs and the rear were revtec runner as well ... I tryed and worked great...

    the tires are the 315 = 35s

    Looks like a hill in New West I drove for many years to work?

    Your truck looks great, hope to see you at cruiser days in Vancouver.

    I am on the island, if you need any typical mech parts like birf rebuild kits etc I have them.

    I actually like the look of those wheels. I wouldn't take them on rocks though.

    Nice looking truck!
