    Sweet ride, definitely different! You plan on modding it? I'm not much into lowering, but I bet that 5 lug would look sweet slammed!

    Hi toned,

    As far as bolt patterns I am not sure there are some other threads under the 5 lug category that goes into a lot of details on this.

    By the way I have the exact same truck - same color everything.

    What I have gathered so far is that there are two basic mods you can do to address the wheels they are:

    1. Go with bigger tires on the stock rims specifically "Goodyear Wrangler Silent Armor 235/75/15's". According to Pete (pkjr) at the link below. "No lift. No black box mod. No rubbing at all." There are many pics of his single cab at the link below. I think those might make a little bit of a difference on ours?

    2. Another idea would be wheel spacers - 4 x 1.5" wheel spacers you can custom order these from www.motorsport-tech.com or look for ones on ebay.
