    Matching adjustable rears I suspect, I'd like some of those. I have the Icon 56505s and have almost the same sentiments. I enjoy all of your pics and trip reports. But updates like these that get me spending dough again. Left shoulder Says you gotta have it. The right shoulder says you're fine without it. :argue: Look forward to seeing what you do.

    Lets just say there will be more shiny blue stuff on the truck in the near future.

    Haha, that's what I went through to get to this point.

    You're going to need a 2-3 week supply.

    No, I still had the OEM toyotas on the rear. And to be fair, I think the wheel came loose, and then the stud broke. Still running the Dormans up front.

    Oh ok. It's going to be nice with the ARP tho. I wish I done ARP all around but I had to pinch pennies somewhere. Maybe down the road.

    Definitely not cheap. I got lucky and found that open pack with 4 on eBay for $20, so I will have 2 extra from the rear and will just need two 5 packs for the front when I decide to do them too.

    So do you think you pulled a Brett and left lugs loose when you changed wheels?

    No, 100% they were torqued when I installed them. I installed the mini wheels right before the trip, and did not recheck the torque on them all week after beating on them. I think what probably loosened them up just a bit was doughnut fail in the Onion Creek parking lot, putting lots of side load on them, then getting on I70 for a few hundred just started to wiggle them slowly loose. We noticed it around Debeque, it was handling really weird like the alignment was off, and stopped and poked around and noticed the driver read wheel was missing a lug and loose as shit. All wheels took a little bit from the torque wrench when I made the rounds though.

    Weird.
    Never had lugs loosen up on me.
    Probably just screwed myself by saying that.
    Are the nuts the correct type for the wheels?
