Did you have to cut the bolt to run 245x70 tires on stock suspension?

Thanks guys, the isolators are on the top and bottom...I got them from kolak when I ordered the shocks.

It is the rear guard 2, the current model and my personal favorite of the two models, some like the previous version better

245/70's fit great without trimming the bolt as long as you have wheel spacers...it was pretty close to touching before I got spacers, but they never rubbed that I know of.

Looks great!

What size wheel spacers did you use?

I like the stance with the 245's.

I have read that many have been using 1.25" and up spacers.

Your's are the first I have seen with 1".

I think they look best.

Are they hub-centric, lugged spacers that attach to the rotors,
or are they just sandwiched between the wheels and rotors with the original studs and lug nuts?

I would like to use the same ones on mine too.

Thanks, PA brother.

I agree! I like the 1" spacers the most. I don't like the tires to stick out too far and on a smaller lift not at all. I love my 1" spacers!

And that is a good site, they even have .75" spacers!!!

replaced all my lights with what i feel are the best replacement bulbs out there, the Solux ClearVision Supreme...80% brighter and 50% whiter than stock but the same life expectancy. Unlike the silverstar ultras which are only 50% brighter and last like 6 months sometimes. Picture below has the fogs and low beams on with the stock bulbs on the right obviously:

Where did you get your lights? They look like a nice alternative to the Silverstar Ultras.

Headlights123.com...they were on backorder for like 3 months because they are so popular that the company can't make them fast enough!
