Yea i think...or 32s...not sure yet. Ima gonna see how my 10.5s look with wheel spacers. If i like the look ill go 33x10.5. If i want wider ill go 32x11.5. I dont really want 12.5 wide tires, even tho they look freakin bad ass! i just don't want to have to worry about triming tooo much and the gas hit too.

Wheel spacers came!


Hubs were pretty dirty


Using a wire brush, scotch bright pad, WD40 and a rag latter


Much cleaner.

Spacer installed at 90ft/lbs, i used Allpro 1.5'' spacers and also Used the Allpro ET nuts. Didn't REALLY need them for the back...defiantly glad i got them for the front.


Here is a ET nut next to a standard thread nut


Rear driverside tire with spacer


rear pass side tire without spacer


The fronts were much cleaner then the backs. Cleaned up better too


Driverside with spacer


pass side with out spacer


Driver side with spacers


passenger side with out spacers


Over all im very happy with the look and parts. I will be checking the torque tomorrow to make sure everything is still snug. Defiantly made my truck look more aggressive and meaner. Just putting around i have already noticed ppl lookin at it. Sorry i dont have any good pics of it but they will come!

next big thing is my Elite bumper, whenever Tim finishes it, plus color match grill, satoshi, think ill paint the skid plate too, and im gonna get exhaust too i think. im tired of not being able to hear it. Also Deckplate mod will come very soon, just waiting for the deckplate to show up. I have been talking with Marco of DSM to see if i need 10'' 5150s. Will have an update on that soon.

thanks for looking!

Thanks man! defiantly looks better for sure. I'll defiantly be getting 33x10.5s now i think when i get tires. And i don't really know yet...im going to go talk to the exhaust shop, he knows his shit for sure. Trying to really decide if i want dual exit pipes or not. muffler tho...not sure..heard you get 6-8hp from the dynomaxx turbo one..my dad has a maganaflow..so idk haha we will see.


On a side note, shock mount to shock mount in the rear at rest is 22 1/4'' VERY VERY bad! as my current 5150s max out at 22.5''...sooooo looks like ill be getting new rear shocks...again..lol had em on for a week..lol

Would it fit a 99? The gaurds look too narrow for my front end, I'm not sure if it would look good on mine.

Yeah, thats the brake proportion valve. It balances the braking pressure for the rear brakes. If you lift too much, you can loose braking power in the rear.

Your suppose to raise the same aboum you lift your truck. (eg. 3" lift - raise it 3")
