Talking BFG's

Got my rig some new shoes -> BFG KO LT265/75/R16 on the stock TRD suspension. I was a bit freaked out there would be rubbing but so far so good! I had to go all "white lettering out" FTW!

Ding! Custom 6" bedsides. Part of the problem I think is just the angle the picture was taken, as if it was low to the ground. The other part of the problem is I don't think the bedsides were lined up all the way when mounted. They are sitting about a 1" high. Glass is a pain in the ass to get mounted up and lined up right. Observe:






For the record....a Tundra axle "can" work with 4.5" bedsides, it just won't work with a f67 leaf pack unless you bump early. With the 50T, the pack goes negative arch right where you want to bump it, it just doesn't tuck under the bedsides:

i have never seen the general grabbers with that tread pattern... (second pic, front tires)

Not sure if there are any writeups. I bought the stuff through auto-interior.com for $135 and it came as 1 big piece. Needed to be trimmed down considerably and took a while but turned out nice.

No doesn't seem to be. Dynamat is next on my list though.

As it was said before they are 6 inch flair bedsides in order to tuck the tundra rear axle. The body lines do not match up perfectly but are pretty close and will just take a little more adjustment to be perfect. Perfectly straight body lines from ALL angles is sacrificed when they flair out as far as they do.

Just a side note the tires are the short course race tires. I picked them up for a killer deal and decided to run them as test fitters until I buy a new set. They have weird road manners as expected but of course hook up awesome in the dirt.

Did a couple things to mine today
Oil change, removed sway bar, adjusted driver coilover preload to try and get rid of my taco lean
Also bought K&N recharge to clean my filter tomorrow, and new Bosch iridium spark plugs to be changed out some time between now and the weekend.

took the topper off, pulled the bed seats, reinstalled the bedrack. Got a short trip I'm trying to do, and then will be building some bed racks and needed the top off to get correct measurements.

it does matter
there can be fitment issues with brake calipers and backspacing will allow you to fit wider tires.

most wheel sites have you select your vehicle make/model/year to narrow it down to what will fit your truck.
