Have you taken a measurement on flat ground from the front to back?

fronts are both around 34 3/4" rears are 36" iirc. I gained 1.25" from the crank. If i had more bolt left on the drivers side i'd crank more but its almost bottomed out. Pass side bolt has a few more turns left in it

it'll be on the trails. Possibly with a body lift and 33s

Heck yeah! I am free on the weekends if you need a hand. More power to you if you can swing the body lift and tires before the meet.

Get spacers. Also I would get 1" blocks for the rear or cut your stock ones down unless you like the rake

Why are you selling your car?

Steelies can be had for $230 shipped from summit racing. It will get you rolling for now.

Was a while ago but --> http://raleigh.craigslist.org/pts/4624261118.html

I'd rather go with aftermarket wheels so they'd have the right offset

I also don't know how well a 12.5 wide tire will work with a 7" wide rim

Gotcha. You probably wouldn't drive it until the "new truck feeling" wore off anyway.

Huh, I have less rake than that with 1" lift shackles in the back. I think I got about 2" out of mine.
Congrats on the new truck man
