The inspector was pretty cool. When I lift my truck Ill get the recon, its just not worth the hassle now to have to find a hookup.


just my humble .02
so what will they pass for recon though? i know my tires would be slightly sticking out of my fender wells.. I ain't down with drilling fender flares on my truck..

Depends on of the thread blocks are sticking out or if its just the side wall bulge.

If its sidewall you will pass. If its the actual part of the tire that touches the ground it's gotta be covered. If so you can use stock wheels and pass with just the lift. Then when it's time for safety you can just swap wheels. That's gotta be a heck of a lot cheaper than 80-100 a year to pass safety.

Do keep in mind even if u put on flares pass then take off the flares a dick cop could take away your sticker (same with passing then putting on obviously wide/illegal tires) but if its just barely sticking out you most likely will never be bothered.

Yeah, it seems like the state is making up rules as they go...no helmet law! But you need reflectors to pass a safety check!

The reflectors are federal law, so they really don't have any control over that.

I'd oppose a helmet law. Why mess with Darwin? Let his theory do its thing!
Just like those riding in the back of the truck bed argument. You know the risks... I just don't know why the age requirement is 12 yrs old? That doesn't make any sense to me.

That's the same guy who tells us we can't conceal carry, even though it is technically legal to do so in Hawaii.

Well I was planning on throwing a spindle lift on my truck.. with the stock wheels i'd i have to run spacers anyway.. i'd be sticking out about .75 - 1.5 inches..

EXACTLY!! Why is it mandatory for all passengers in a vehicle to wear safety belt, when anyone over 12 years of age can sit on fold out chairs in the truck bed..... anywho, im not complaining.. cuz jumping in the back of the truck is way cleaner when picking up wahine, covered in sand, at the bus stop, on the way home

i say get rid of all those dumb laws already... too bad we cant all sign a petition to get those stupid laws gone. unnecessary.

maui, kauai, and big island do JUST FINE without them. infact i would say we all live a much more relaxed life on those islands............. i gotta get back to Kauai ASAP damn

If you were on the sliders, it means that you would have already been on the frame too, right? Better the sliders than the door!
I was working up on the north shore today, beautiful day! Jealous.

haha yes. I AGREE ---- i think i have something in mind


looks like u had fun today brandon im jealous!!! I need to take a week off soon so hopefully maybe we can set up another truck meet with some 4x4ing or .......... 4x2ing with the assistance of us 4x4


got an update on my rear end situation.. I called Atlas pring and found out that i have the super expensive 7inch HD springs so my rear end goal will actually get to exactly what i want. The guy from Atlas said i would get exactly 7 inches of lift and that i would be able to remove one spring if i need to drop it a lil. so im keeping the springs.

going to hopefully make a full mod day i think this wednesday i could seriously use some additional hands. im planning on removing the C/o from my truck again (taking off the spacer and cranking the c/o with the ratchet strap method) then ill be taking apart the rear. Might neeed a ride to 4wp to pick up my new extended shocks . hopefully will get to start early in the AM to get done early afternoon. ill be happy to buy a case if anyone is down to come
