They look good man. I don't know how you got them that cheap, but I'd say that we both got a good deal. Nice build!

Welded up and installed my clamp mount for my ram. I can finally turn left again. The response on the ram is still ****ty though. I guess I will tear it all apart after NYD.

Truck and trailer…. awesome investment. Makes wheeling and pushing your limits much more comfortable. If all you need to worry about is how to get it back to the trailer it's much better than worrying how you're going to get home. I still like driving to the trail and think that's an important ability to maintain in a streetable rig but I tell ya… it's NICE to get into my clean quiet warm smooth riding v8 truck after a long day of wheeling and cruise on home. Congrats!

Thanks Guys! Too stressful to drive it to the trails. I hate not taking any of the fun lines for fear of breakage.

Just read through the whole thing. NICE BUILD!

Maybe I missed it, I'm assuming you used a Genright tire carrier. Did you have to modify the Savvy Rub Rails or anything on the Genright tire carrier to get them to fit? Looks like a close fit.

Thanks man I really appreciate it. The mounting brackets had to be modified slightly to work with the rails, but it was just a notch in the Genright mounts

Hell of a day. Turns out I cannot run 4 psi on the spyderlocks since they are 9.5 inches wide, but the Allieds did since they were 8 inches wide. Lost all 4 inner beads... Sucked and the new tires need broke in.



I will upload some pics tomorrow

Did you use a lot of lube to mount them? That inner bead might be sketchy until it all dries up, depending on what you used. Freshly mounted tires seem to easily pop beads until they settle in nice and dry.
