looks awesome bud. and yea beadlocks are a pain in the butt. we welded and mounted a pair for a good buddy of mine and i swear it took like an hour a rim to tighten all of the bolts on the outside to spec lol.

on your tube doors does your door chime like to stay on or your door ajar light since the door mechanism isnt there? do you have quick disconnects for the power windows, locks and speakers?

A spacer ring? That doesn't sound quite right..

nope thats the beautiful thing about having the doors off, it doesnt know the doors even gone :) so no lights or annoying noises.

oops my bad its not a spacer rig it is a ring that goes between the two rings so when you tighten the bolts only the side of the rings that the bead of the tire (outer edge) clamps
