I'm ordering 16x8 on Monday in machined and I'll get them powdercoated someday. Need to regear truck, get a limited slip, machine some axles and get brake hardware for the new axle and rotors

I've only seen a set of standards out here in colorado. Having some unique rims will be nice that and I don't like the ones I have

Whenever the snow stops falling I'm dropping out the front axle and giving the truck a good wash. Rear axle will be pretty much assembled this weekend. Can't wait for a working e-brake, discs in back, a true limited slip when I need it, and to get some power back with my gear swap
