    Alright! So I 'm planning on turning my stock 2.7 regular cab into an offroad/expedition rig. nothing crazy no sas (yet) just armor maybe a lift, offset rims and some good tires. I want to be able to wheel and not worry but at the same time it will still get me from a to b without needed 7 tanks of gas!! here is the start!

    And the start of the sliders, thanks to the kid building my armor!!

    This will be a slow build seeing as I work at radioshack and the cash flow is more like a trickle! but hey if anyone is interested in wheeling around the central pa area lmk!! also the tool box is for sale will trade for parts!!

    Bolt pattern is a 6x5.5 correct. as far as backspace you want like 4" to set even with/ over the flares. and no lift the biggest tire you can hold is a 265/75/16 if 16's are your rim size
