Thanks haha it's a big learning experience building the truck but I keep at it. My truck is "all show no go" lol

Get the Maxtrac spindles or WNP (WheelsNParts) off eBay or Amazon. They are the same just let your wallet make the decision. They run $289-$330

Just be careful, don't want your truck ending up like his, don't run 35's and ensure they're installed properly..

You know, every post, every build thread gets really old.

I'm from Lodi! Didn't realize there were other members up this way.

And as fas as your width goes I think Brett (auburn something is his name on here) is running 1.5" spacers in the rear to even out the "stance"

I don't see why not lol

If you want fiberglass you want at least 33's though.

Those were probably the mirrors that came on it. They had them available from 1998-2005

What about fiberglass, 31s with no lift? Would it fill the gap more? or I could go with a 2.5 fabtech kit and just have more downtravel right?
