Well Chaz brought his truck over for some pics, so we decided to go offroading at a small local spot that has turned to complete shit because of people throwing trash everywhere... but, you can still offroad there so fuck it. wish we could have got more pics, but you'll see why we didnt at the end of the thread. Heres are a few random shots:

ryguy
06-17-2007, 11:28 PM
easier said than done.. lol I want to be stealth with my toneau cover, then just take that off when I go offroading. Simple enough huh?? Hey chaz, did you get your frame cut on the cab mount yet? If not, you need to def do that before you even think of running 35's.. Im suprise that you can run 33's if you havent cut the frame cab mount yet. The reason why you dont want to do 35's in the rear is you will hit like a mofo. I had super high bumpstops inorder not to bottom out and rip off my rear fenders. So anyways.. Nice build, Ill show you guys mine shortly.. LOL

Chaz doesnt need to cut the cab mount to clear 35's, if he runs the AMS Spindles it should clear. :)

lol yeup.. Hey where is your skid plate? how come you havent put that thing on??

No need for it on the street just adds more weight = less MPG its gonna be on for Barstow. Im goin with 500# coils now I just cant take the bro look anymore.

ryguy
07-02-2007, 07:51 PM
ahh ok.. just wondering.. So the 500# coils will do the trick.. For me the 600# works since I have double cab, 4wd.. etc.. So anyways..

ya that would help.. See, its still high due to your spindals.. LOL but nothing you could do.. Anyways.. Try taking more preload out?

Tim said he took as much preload as he could out without the coil moving around.

ryguy
07-02-2007, 10:14 PM
ah.. if you do bigger tires that will help with the look. Also you can lower the pressure in your tires.. just nothing will really go down, unless you change the rear.. waiting in line is what we all have to do unfortunately.

HoeRunner
07-03-2007, 08:34 PM
The only reason im goin with 500# coils is because of the spindles, without the spindles it handled the great with the 600# coils. Brock just stay with the 600# coils. Unless you plan on getting the spindles later.
