I simply have one question regarding your previous stock rims and 255/85/16 KM2 BFGs combo. Did you have to add a spacer or was the stock backspace enough to accommodate the new tires? I believe it's 4.75" for those 16x7 five star steelies. Thanks in advance - keep the great build going!
No rubbing problems, they're only 9.5" wide though.

How much noise did the BFG 255/85R16s make? I've been thinking about an upgrade for my truck.

A few shots from the Owens Valley, 102 degrees, Muy Caliente!


I wish I would have had time to get the Scepter water and fuel cans to finish the rear out.
The first pictures in the Sierra Nevada mountains, where exactly is that?
Love the build though. I am going for an overland and it's definitely an inspiration.

Tacovendor, did you have any driveline vibration from lifting your truck? I've seen where some of the regular cabs have them from the 1-piece driveshaft. I'm going to look at picking up an '06 Reg. Cab 4x4 tomorrow.

Always come back to check out your truck...love this build! Saw that Jason is updating his front bumper and I am sure you will have to get one to put it through the paces?! I'd be happy to take the old one off your hands

love the truck OP! I have a 2010 regular cab 4x4 and I'm setting it up for overlanding as well so this thread is a good inspiration!

Just curious though, did you experience any driveline vibrations after your lift was installed? If so did you address the vibrations and how?

The vibrations might be taken care of with a really good alignment.

Amen. I hope Tacovendor doesn't mind me copying some aspects for my upcoming build.

Such a nice setup! I know you have gone with aftermarket rims now but going to stick my stock steelies for now also and go with the BFG KM2 255/85/r16's. Love the clean look!

Yes it had a vibration, lowered the transfer case 1.5" and that took care of it. The one piece drive shaft is the culprit.
