    :woot:Just called and ordered my 35x12.50R17 Puitbull Rocker Radials from Discount Tire. 2-3 days shipping and then time to bring out the big hammer maybe the saw! I refuse to rock a body lift.
    And then the Camburg UCA's should be in. No more weak creaking ball joints! I'm one wheel bearing away from having a completely new front end.

    Pics will be up as soon as I get parts.

    Discount Tire Direct for $398 + $50 insurance for each and free shipping. So after they waived one of the insurances and threw in free valve stems they got around $1750. Just a lil more than the $800 I was prepared to do with the 15's and KM2's. Ohh well:rolleyes: these tires are pretty ridiculous in the sand and mud.
    Got the new shoes on Saturday morning and went wheeling/camping right after install. I ended up having grind a bug chunk out of my UCA to keep the sidewall out of it. It's fine for right now in a straight line but still hits with light steering. Once the new UCA's are in then I'll be able to start working the body clearance issues. The rear is gonna be pretty easy but can't tell about the front yet.
    Here's the pics finally (Samsung Galaxie S II Skyrocket)

    Wow! Looks great!

    Not to thread jack you, but I have a somewhat random question for ya (coming from a complete 4Runner newb). When you lift a 4R 2.5-3" do you have to do new UCAs like you do for the Tacos?

    New UCA's are in finally! I don't need new wheels after all. They have plenty of room. Very easy install and great hardware, good welds, just very clean pieces....for now.

    Original destroyed UCA's. The outermost portion is what I had to grind out just to clear the sidewalls to bolt the wheels on. The rest of the missing paint is from the slight turning radius issue. Yeah I know it's bad

    Awesome man. Big tires and small lift=win. Not a huge fan of the chrome, but it does look pretty good.


    How are the pitbulls on the highway? Tons of noise?

    Wow wow wow! That's aluminum not chrome! I wouldn't mind blacking them out but they're really growing on me. Flat black was my original plan. The noise isn't really that bad, little more than the Kumho's but no where near swamper loud.

    Thanks guys, it's still a work in progress, always will be. Still got stock 4.30 gears but the 5spd is geared a lot lower in the bottom gears, 5th is still a little lower than the auto 4th. She pulls just fine for me. Has no problems at highway speeds either. I'd deffinitely have at least 4.88's with an auto. I'll never go back to an auto though!
