Ha. I was there picking up one car, and dropping off another and saw your car in front. I was trying to figure out why Brian's truck looked so different.... Smile

Ask and you shall receive!

Before (right), sitting next to Brians' beast:


New shoes - Federal Couragia 285/70/17's:


After install:




Cleaned up a little:


Removed mud flaps for clearance and painted the handles/rear emblems:


As you can see, I still have to order the fifth tire... this one just doesn't look quite right!


Thanks again to Brian at ASI in Charlotte! He's now got a new customer (for all my future ideas hehe) and referal to others!

Thanks for the quick pics ! Wink

Looks GREAT!!! Go Brian and ASI!!!!

Did you do the BMC? If not, any rubbing with the Federals? Did removing the mudflaps make a difference?

Thanks man! There was some pretty severe rubbing at first, but luckily it was mainly the mud flaps causing the problem. I can't afford the BMC just yet, but will have it done eventually. The only rubbing now is just when I back up at a hard angle (which can be avoided if I am not in a rush)... other than that, pretty much everything clears!

Just curious....what lift did you go with and did you replace the stock UCAs?

I went with the 3" Rough Country lift, but haven't replaced the UCAs just yet... Gotta compromise with the wife! I've got a whole shopping list including those, but it'll all come in time Smile

I heard the UCAs help with the rub. I know a few guys running the LR UCAs and they have no rub. I am in the process of gathering my lift components for an end of year install. I have the Toytec Front Coilovers and just got the Light Racing UCAs. Next up the Toytec SuperFlex rear springs and either the Bilstein, or OME rear shocks. I am also going to purchase a set of Toy Outfitter/HFS rear lower links in July. So, I am slowly gathering the pieces........

Sweet!!! Well congrats, that is a nice setup as well!! You will have to give us a review in a few months! I am not sure, but I think CarolinaCruiser15 (Rolando) has that same setup... I THINK.....scratch
