Here, this is my friends truck. A stock 2002 FX4 running 15x8 Mickey Thompsons and 2 inch wheel spacers. Her truck fills the fenders really well. But I think with the proper offset on your wheels will get you almost the same.

*Beware of what spacers can do*




Do you have any lift/wheels/tires coming soon?

I plan on saving up for new tires and investing in some spacers. I need new tires as it is and in the future I will be lifting my truck

It's been a long time due to blizzardzilla hitting NJ but the fun is over, time to get back to work!! After I get out of school today I'm gonna be cranking my t-bars for the front end and inspecting the undercarriage for any damage from the snow storm...

Alright folks, it's that time again and not the kind that you would use with your girlfriend/wife.... BIG UPDATE!! Over the course of the last couple weeks I've been searching for new rims, trying to figure out new tire sizes for the rims, making measurements on Shenron to ensure that I'll be able to fit the wheels that I want and Im putting a small amount of money to the side each time I get paid so I can finally paint my fiberglass fenders. I was also "obsessed with trying to create a spare tire carrier out of a Chevy blazer spare tire arm, I was planning to cut and re shape it so that it could serve as a tailgate and hold a spare but I dropped that idea because that would be a project and right now I need to work on my truck itself...after I got that idea out of my head I started to think about what my truck really needs and the first thing that came to mind was wheels, so I began my adventure on the old interwebs (gas monkey garage reference) and started to look on Craigslist, I found a set of of 4 American Racing Outlaw 1's for $250 so I contacted the seller and after some negotiations and rivalry with another person who wanted to buy them for $150, the seller said he'd give them to me for $190 since they're a little dirty and one tire is shot so today I will be going to get them after I get out of school. Once they're on Shenron I'll post some pics!!! Stay Tuned!!!

rims are 15x10, the current tires are 265/75/15. I'm planning to get much bigger tires however.

Hey guys, bad news... The rims didn't fit because the distance between the threads wasn't big enough so I'm going to have to buy adapters, on the other hand, I took a mock pic of it and it looks sick! Not only that but with the adapters, it'll give me a little more of a wider look since the wheels are gonna stick out a fair amount... I'll keep everyone updated on the progress and I wanted to thank everyone who is Sub'd! Stay tuned!!

Since pay day is a couple days away I've been thinking a lot and scolding through some of the forums on here and 5.0 Swaps caught my eye and to be honest, it doesn't seem like a bad idea... A V8 is gonna guzzle gas like a dog drinks water on a hot day but your getting more power out of it and it'll have a nice look to it in the engine bay of a ranger... This is just a thought made purely out of boredom, right now I'm waiting to get paid to buy wheel adapters for 4.5 bolt pattern to 4.75 since the rims I just got don't fit... Anyways, I'll keep you guys updated on anything that pops up or anything else I think of.

Yesterday I brought the spacers to the post office to send them back, costed me $11.00.... Any ways, I have the guy the tracking number since he said once he gets the tracking number he'd send the ones I'm exchanging the old ones for right away, waiting for a response now, I'll keep everyone updated.

Hey guys, the seller finally responded to let me know that he got the tracking number in the email I sent him and he said that the adapters will be here by Friday! Still trying to get the tracking number from him but I'll keep updating!
