Drove it to work today, lets just say 42 dont balance out too well. Gonna have to do some looking around to see what I can do, might have to dismount and make sure its centered well enough, its driveable but its a rough/wobbly ride.

air soft BBs, about 14oz per tire.but I am also running about 30psi for a few days then i will drop it down, might smooth out then.

the way they are moving when i drive its more than likely I didnt get it centered well enough on the bead lock. guess ill have to loosen 128 bolts. :(, but im not too worried about it, it still drives and its not like i drive it daily.

when you mounted them did you set the rim on something to get it up off the floor?

crap! good call. i remember reading about that now, ill just do it again that could be a huge factor. I mean it seated good against the rim, but the tire was touching the ground.

So how much did it dog down the truck upping the tire size that much? Also, with that much unsprung weight now, did you have to change the valving in your SAW's? Funny how people talk the tire size is too big for the truck etc, it's a trail rig now, I think it actually fills out nicely.. Like it just went through puberty and filled out its body! :)

it works it harder for sure but it still wanted to go just fine, i wouldnt say it was a huge difference, but it is harder to hold speed.

It did fill everything out nice, I need to fix the front axle shaft and I will test everything else out.(clearance)

As for the SAWs, you really shouldnt need it, you only set them for sprung weight, not unsprung that I know of. It seemed to handle like before no problem.

Ohh ok cool, I didn't know if the unsprung weight would affect the rebound of the shocks etc! Very cool man! The V8 should help ya hold speed nicely... My truck doesn't like the 37's with 5.13's.... But then again a 3.0 w. a 230k plus isn't a speed demon :)

yeah either black or stock, but I have to hack some stuff on the hood for my cage and maybe even some louvers to keep the engine cool, I want to go back to just blue.

some louvers like this

Looks sick. You gonna bring it down to the indy meet? I think it would look even better with some orange on the side of the truck somewhere.
