    255 85 16 is an excellent tire size. I think the skinny tires work great. Just wish they had more options in this size.

    Those look awesome! At least for me, the price is hard to stomach though.

    Painted. Just rust-o-lium. First time doing something like this so the fronts I used a dremel and wire brush bits and ground the flaking parts of the original coat. The rears I ground all the paint off and I picked up a spare and sand blasted that one. The fronts are going to need to be touched up or redone, the rears have some scratches from my clumsy self, and the spare hasn't seen much action but is the best finish for sure. The original plan is to not clear coat them to make touching up far easier. Though a clear coat would be great if you don't hit hard trails or no trails at all.

    Thanks for weighing in. Does anybody have thoughts on the OME Spacers you can get for that bearing?

    Chevy 63 swap progress. Spring hangers and shackle mounts are tacked in. I’ll throw on the 37’s and then Start cutting into the front end for 3link. This way I’ll hedge my bets and be able to adjust shackle angle once I see how the front end sits.

    Moved fridge out of bed to free up some room and keep the dust/rain off of it. Now just to decide how I am going to strap it down.
