    They were made out of an old street sign. Any sort of thin metal would work


    Thanks!

    Truck is off for another alignment today. Spending way too much money on that shit compared to how much I drive the thing.

    I have noticed no matter where I take it there's always space around the alignment cams. Even looking at the gussets offered by a few companies there's still space on one side or the other... which on a hard hit they're going to move. Either they arn't using the correct size spacer or only one option is available. Going to give the 8 cams a tack weld today after I check everything to keep them from moving. Shouldnt be a problem to knock the tack out if I need an alignment later on. Hell one of them the little ears are almost flat :mad:

    Do you guys have a firestone out there? I paid $199 for lifetime alignment.
    Well worth it.

    curious to see what you think of the tars in the snow

    saw a set of 295s in the snow and they didn't do too well...liked to get buried and slide a lot...turned me off of them and side with the 34 mtrs.

    low pressure and siping should help though..

    285/75 is such a great size...wish more offered that size

    Yea im waiting to find out myself... I heard they did pretty good but we shall see. 34 is the perfect size imo. They clear things by so little its almost like they were made for the yota's

    But you'll save more money in the long run with the lifetime alignment. So far, I've had 2 alignments. 2 more and it starts paying for itself.

    Then lifetime pays for itself. Doesn' make sense to pay separate everytime when you can just pay $199 flat for lifetime.
