Guess what came today?!!!!!!!!!!

So my truck came today!!!! yAAAAYYYY.. .. BUT it failed inspection:(..


1) window tint has to come off

2) tires stick out too far

3) front codder pins have to be put in..

4) front diff leak..


Also, the Tires are rubbing HARD CORE when i turn.. So is there anything i can do in the meantime while waiting for my body lift to get here(next week) to keep the rubbing to a min. And not rip off my front fenders?

Also, there seems to be a wobble coming from the rear after around 45+ mph.. got any ideas?

Thanks guys! ill post up pics ASAP.. i gotta go to sleep though..

Thanks Zach, i have an appointment with my mechanic next week.. Ill check the lug nuts tomorrow. I know its not a bent axle.. so it may be that there are some loose lug nuts..

I can still drive it.. I have temp. plates for 30days.. I am going to borrow someone's smaller tires for the next inspection. for the flares, i may get gheto and get some double sided tape and tape some garden gutter in it to "extend" the flares just until it passes inspection then take them out..

First thing i would do for the vibration is get your tires rebalanced. That sucks about the tires being out too far. could you borrow some stockish wheels from someone with the same bolt pattern? or flares?

I just got my truck inspected today. I passed! i wasnt expecting too though haha

Wow beautiful photos!!

Sucks about failing inspection, but then the German TUV is probably pretty strict about a lot of stuff like that.

Great to see the truck made it over there. That's cool as hell.

Good luck with getting it to pass inspection!

Do you get a lot of confused looks when people see the truck?

Thats cool that you brought your truck to Germany. I don't think I've ever seen your truck till now except for in your avatar. Truck looks awesome. Good luck with passing the inspection.
