To get wheel spacers or to not get wheel spacers? Nothing drastic like 3" but something around 1.5".

Question is from where and what does everyone have to trim when they get wheel spacers?

I think that becomes a problem with bigger tires, rather than spacers. Idk though.

Well haven't done anything to the truck because I'm pretty much a broke college student so nothing new. But since LEDs are cheap I'll probably buy some of amazon but I'll need to look at the reviews on some. My dash lights are dropping like flies these past few months so I've decided it needs to be done.

Got the brake bar on I even splice it into the reverse lights so it also has reverse lights!
But tonight me and my dad wire in my bar and pods so I finally have them to use but need to re aim the bar but other than that I'm glad to finally have those done. So my lay off list is complete now I need to get rid of my old 32's and find another rim.

So my college pays for a set of brakes wether it be front or rear so I ordered my rear breaks since my fronts are all new or fairly new (pads,rotors,calipers) so I'm really excited!

Also here's my lights we wired up
Switch panel
Lights on
Definitely need to get nights shots especially with this HDR iPhone 6S plus

Got my new drum brake hardware
If I only had the money for these.
My buddy has them 31x10.5x15 but there on Chevy rims so I'd have to transfer them..

Haven't done much to it other than wash it

Then about a week after that I took it off roading and then bottomed out a few time and now have a front end noise.

So I will track that down sooner or later but until then I'm driving the Escape.

Tracked the noise down to a sway bar link and then a yesterday I was driving to work and it started missing and the CEL started flashing so I took it home and haven't had time to look at it so next week I'll have to look at it.
