each eh? well that stinks. im kinda ify on his stuff. saw a install where a guy did fenders before a hood, and the body lines werent even close till he put the raptor style hood on. I want just the hood but doubt it'd line up to my mcneil fenders.

thats not cheap! I had my mcneil fenders painted on my truck for 7 all in.

trouble i found is if you go front you kinda have to go rear fenders or it looks weird. those fenders on a raptor conversion wpuld look neat.

I agree it is alot for fenders...at least with mcneil i could keep my rear stepside and it look more natural with the body lines similar and no extra

Little update, still waiting on BTF but got sliders welded up. Going to undercoat them today and mount my t case skid plate after paint and still 2 holes. Getting a roll bent tube for the front bumper made this weekend and some mounts then I can build off the main bar later and mount my stinger.

Thanks once I figure out my rear glass for a steppie I'll add kickouts to go the full length but it may require custom besides...

You'll probably have the build a trans crossmember. I've been trying to find one that's tucked tighter to the frame. No luck so far

Fallen wild peak/ rocky mountain or Yokohama geolander ats in 285/ 75 haven't decided yet which. I like the wild peak cause it's more aggressive and I've heard good things

they did great. didnt put any weight in the bed all winter, and it was one of the worst we had.

i was hating them on one drive home, i was sliding coming to a stop. next day i was told that we had one of the worst ice storms in history. there were hundred of cars in the ditch and i was still there and made it home after a 45 min drive.


also had an oops moment last winter, passed a guy, truck drifted (my lead foot), i swerved, went through a 3 ft ditch, onto a lawn, across the lawn, back through the ditch and back onto the road. the whole time my buddy is on the phone with his gf in the car behind us. all of this was covered in 18-20" of snow.


they dig great in mud, sand, snow, i cant spin them on pavement, and they dont chip or tear like my old BFG's did.

needless to say, i'll buy another set when these wear out.

That's what I needed..I need a good snow tire for here, where it winter 8-9 months of the year and icy. That's the main reason IM not going Bfg that and they get dry Rot cracks quick

if you want to stay inexpensive, just grab some 64's. after my first ride, the ride down the street about the same, and they can handle basically the same travel, maybe a bit less.
