4" lift and 37's....coming up!

The FedEx trucked showed a day early......damn I love it when things come together!














Current specs:

2.5" Rough Country Budget Boost
305/60/18 Xtreme Terrain tires (33's)
18" Sahara wheels


When completed:

4" Rough Country lift
37/12.50/16 Irok ND tires (radial)
16" ProComp series 152 "streetlock" wheels (4.25bs)



Notes:

These are the new ND tires. ND stands for Non-directional. For us "normal" people that drive the rigs on the road....you can rotate them in the usual pattern, compared to standard Iroks that are directional tires and can only be rotated front to back. From looking at them for the first time....they also don't seem to have that "bubble" look to them like the standard irok radials do....they are more squared off like the irok bias tires. Very excited about getting this going. Unfortunately, can't start on it till Saturday!

I'll post pics as I go and note any issues that arise.

The only thing that sucks is that by ordering the RC 4" kit when you did, you missed out on it yesterday when it was the deal of the day.

Those are some big *** tires.

Actually...if you look at rough country's site....they charge shipping of 70 bucks. I got free shipping from NTWOnline.Com.....for all of it. Worked out pretty well.

While I haven't obviously driven these ND tires.....being radials, they will ride better than you think.


Can't wait to get started......damn work sucks! At least it pays for this expensive *** hobby

37's don't ride that bad at all. They take a little more of the deflection from the road. Pair them with some adjustable shocks and the ride is great!
