    Truck pulls a tad to the right...I think it's normal w/ the wider tires correct? I had the truck aligned over the weekend on stockers post lift.

    Just due to size and traction of M/T tires, the truck will follow the road surface more than it used to. However, it shouldn't be any different from when you bumped up your tires on the taco. Same effect.

    Check all air pressures and they're the same?

    If it's constantly pulling to the right, the person doing the alignment may not have accounted for fact that roads typically have an arch to them for water drainage purposes. In a safe area, you could try driving on the opposite/wrong side of the road in an area where the road has a slight dome shape to it and see if it pulls to the left. If so, then that's what happened.

    Mine pulls a little and that is after it was aligned 3 times in the same session by Jace's friend at Stevenson.

    No sanding at all. All i did was clean it up and tape out 3" or so from where you are painting. I put on about 5 layers. Pull the tape off and then pull off the overspray between the bumper and the tape. You need that gap so you can get the tape off and peal the plastidip cleanly where you dont want it.

    So easy! Going to add some to my motorcycle soon. I will show before and after pics when i do. Stupid chrome.

    I would have waited for the new tires and rims to get an alignment. You prolly need another. Good thing you got the tires for free :)
    I don't know yet, I wanna get this runner on the move with some more parts first but I will proly want an all mtn bike soon.

    Haven't checked tire pressure yet...any recommendations what it should be aired at? I know tire shops like to fill them up pretty high...


    Appears normal then...

    That's what I was originally going to do, but Chris said to get it before the tires are put on so I went off his recommendation. I have a 1 year warranty on the alignment...should I have it double checked?

    Yeah even name brand on CL could be tough. I have just come to peace with spending money on bikes every few years.

    see, i will use mine 3 times a week to ride 40 miles a day easy. I came to terms with spending money on bikes when i bought my wife a $300 dollar GT mountain bike and warned her that it would suck and then she rode it on trails and complained every 10 minutes that the chain kept falling off. I looked at her and said "lets sell this bike, and you need to spend at least 1k on the next one" she now has a santa cruz superlight and couldnt be happier with it.
