its 12" deep, I have the 36" and could probably fit the 42" but the beds too short for the 48" and a tool box.

I really like them, however they are bigger then they seem and I still rub like a bitch working on fixing that issue slowly, have the cab mount but I need to bend the pinch weld more and trim a bit more of the fender. Also had the wheels moved forward a little during the last alignment.
Minus that road noise is minimal, steering isn't affected much with them, your mileage will drop down a 1-2mpg and you'll notice it takes a little more to get going.Offroad they performed great

I like your rim and tire size combo. looks sexy. I have the coilovers and will have the TC UCAs, but I am waiting on the rims and tires to get here(funds allowing). still up in the air about 265/75s, and 285s, and looking at your picture, you are making it harder for me to go 265/75r16...

can you provide a side profile shot of the whole truck?

it really depends on what you wanna do, each of these trucks is different like I said I am still having some issues fitting the 285s but plenty of members haven't had any issues at all

heres the side profile


front is sitting a little lower because I haven't cranked the CO up again lost about half an inch after the bumper was put on

is your truck MGM or black? at first glance of the first pics I thought it was black, the last pic looks MGM. I have an MGM, and DEM WHEELS are fortifying my decision to go black. tire size? 285s look good... but still not sure

and appreciate the pic!

Thanks man, you too.

For now talking to the guy who made it and well see where that leads. I'll end up getting a rear bumper with a swing arm later haha.

Push your caster to 3.0 on your alignment and you should loose just about all the rubbing
