I'm thinkin about them, double beadlocks that don't affect balancing.

But weld-on outers are still only 300 so i'm still not 100% sure.

Start my new job tomorrow. So work on the truck will slow down. It's getting really close to being finished and yet again i'm just waiting on parts to get here. If i have parts here for me i will be working on it the whole time during the weekend if i don't get home early enough to work on it at night.

bead locks are usually flat in the clampin area. the centering rings have a ridge that make sure that the bead of the tire is centered in the rim. this gives a good rollout and makes it driveable...

Used to be a tech at a local dodge dealer.

Now i'll be on a field crew for a surveying company and slowly move my way up as i go through school.

does your truck have a flair side bed?? i've got a 95 ranger and with a bod lift and roughly 6" suspension life the tires clear the fenders fine (37's) although the bastid stays broke and i haven't taken it out yet....

19 pages is a lot to mull over. How much are those Alcan springs? I'm still attached to the Rancho 44044s. $300 for the pair isn't bad, and they offer awesome performance.
