Finally got done wrestling my 265/70/17 Duratrac with 35psi up into the spare area. Lots of cutting, grinding and pushing it is in......will need to touch up the hitch and install the bumper tomorrow.

Ok guys all parts are in house....changed out the rear discs and pads this afternoon....now running the stillen drilled rotors.



image-2958836703.jpg

And weighed a stock wheel and 245/65 tire......weighed in at 59 pounds vs the AEV and 265/70 Duratrac at 67 pounds.....so about a +8 pound difference or +32 pound difference total....I am happy with that.

Fingers crossed I will be ready for an alignment on Monday.....

^^^ 8lbs difference - that is less than I thought it would be going to 265's. I never did weigh mine but that gives me a good estimate.

Got the rear suspension installed this afternoon.....I did notice that the drivers rear tire seems to stick out about 1/2 to 3/4 an inch more than the passenger side. Any thoughts on that? Will an alignment fix that? It is sticking out a little more than I actually like. Track bar?

Anyway...got the front coil over off and had to stop for dinner....will continue tomorrow...not in a super big hurry.

Just read on another thread your OME went in today? Pics, bro, pics!
You know the rules - it didn't happen without pics.






Edit: After I posted I see you got the rear suspension today.
