Welp, picked up 5 wheels and 4 tires tonight.. Drove 300mi round trip in my buddy's crew cab cummins on 37's at 18mpg the whole way in the wind, but we got em!

37x12.50 Cooper STT's with approx 85% tread on all four wrapped on 17x9 chrome 10 hole wheels. Not sure on the wheels, I'll have to get a look tomorrow when he brings em by, since having a 4 foot bed doesn't allow you to carry 4-37's lol.... Also gave me center caps and a 5th matching wheel all for $1100. On the way back we drove up to Bremerton, WA to one of my best friends' house to see him, his wife and my god daughter and had dinner.. Got to drive past where he works at the Naval ship yard and see the massive carriers they have there that are like 50 years old he said, he's an engineer for Peuget Sound NSY, they have 4 acres of area you can drive on up top, that's crazy!

Anyways, got the last major piece to the puzzle... Just need a 17mm fitting for the PS box, E250 shaft, u-bolts and spring plates and basically I've got it all or have it ordered to be here within the week... Evan is shipping me his leafs for my rear, and after that... It's anxiously waiting for the 26th to roll around to start it!

Well a quick update...

Picked up my E250 shaft for $25 and it was already pulled! Gotta love that..

Only thing I think I have left is u-bolts and spring plates, and the 17mm fitting for the PS box... Everything else is on the way... I'll go snag a pic of the wheels and tires right now before I go to bed

I loved the STT's when I had them. They are great in the snow.

And the hard to find E-250 shaft! Mine was already pulled at the place I got it from, only $25 :)



Ordered my front hangar today and should be done Thursday. My buddy that owns the 4wd shop is gonna go to his friends garage tonight and see if he still had some d44 u-bolts and spring plates for me, that'd be sweet! Cuz that's another freebie!

Keep those pictures coming!! I (we all) wanna see plenty of pics of the modding before/during/after.. I'm particularly interested in your front hanger setup, the leafs mounting, and ESPECIALLY the E250 shaft and how it fits during the process.. Oh, I forgot, also the steering box, tie rod mods, etc..

This is straight up **** dude.

Ordered my u-bolts and spring plates today, since my buddy didn't have any like he thought he did for the d44.... Got the 17mm PS fitting ordered up a day or two ago also..

Now I play the wait game for the parts. Here's what I still have out there comin to me and once they get here I've got everything!

1-ton TRE's (Trail-Gear sent the wrong ones to me so I'll get those tomorrow)
U-bolts and spring plates
Front hangar
17mm PS pump fitting to the steering box
Pro-Comp rear chevy lift leafs
20' 1.5" .250" Wall DOM from work for drag link and tie rod, possibly shock hoops.
