I've always liked black wheels. What is the off set of those wheels and what size spacers are you running? Problem with the wheels out that far on a 4th gen is now you will be rubbing in other places Very Happy

With some minor trimming Im not rubbing any more. Had to trim out the front of the inner fender liner... pulling it forward didnt help anymore. Had to trim out some the rear inner fender liner and some of the plastic fender inside the wheel well. Also had to trim a corner off the inside bottom of the bumper cover.

They are 17x8 with 4.5" backspacing and a .25" spacer. In order to run this setup you have to change to 1/2" wheel studs that are .33" longer than stock and change over to 1/2" 20thread lug nuts.

I will probably go ahead and chop the body mount up front just to prevent any possible rubbing.

Long travel isnt going to happen. good guess though.

started rearranging the rear end of my truck in getting some idea together for my cargo area.



Im thinking that I will run my totes like this with the spare held vertical. Sourced some 24" full extension slides rated at 500lbs and can be mounted flat to save height.

I cant afford much height because the spare tires only has 3/8" clearance coming out the hatch.

I dont miss it. No sense in having a truck made to go offroad and rarely using as such.
