Here's what I've been talking about...

Can you notice the mod?

Here's another fab job...

Here's them off:

Here's them on:

Here's the back with them on:

They're held in place by the bendable trailer pins for quick removal... But I had to do something so I didn't get a ticket and this way I can take them off and not have to worry about ruining my newly painted flares! Also, the pieces aren't painted yet cuz I don't know if I'm done with them. I might do a lil more fabbing to them to help push the flap off away from the tire. Then I'll bed line them I think.

What do you think!? Enjoy!

You know that in the trucker world unless you have dual whips that means your gay if its on the left. If you don't believe me go look at any big trucks and see how many antennas are on the left....the same goes for stacks.

Yeah, well ask my girlfriend what she thinks of that. lol

I didn't want two antenna's on the same side, to me, that's even more gay. Dual whips are about as worthless as a midget with down syndrome. You have to be exact with them and only on big rigs will it make a difference.

George, I went with Toyo's because I got these from A-Z wrecking yard off a wrecked 350 for $500. Paid another $100 for mount and balance and these tires MAYBE have 1000 miles on them.... I thought $500 for $1500 tires now was a pretty good deal. Sorta like preventative maintenance if you wanna call it that. I've already sold my Hankook's too.... $500 as they are haha.

Actually Austy painted his factory flares and got a 01+ chrome bumper and 01 valance for free and painted it the other night. Not to mention his 01+ mirrors and his 06 tails, it makes it REAL HARD to identify what year truck he has.

His truck is an 98.

I only did it to keep from getting the fix it ticket in a double flagged zone... Double the price and sometimes they don't get dropped.

You guys can bust my ***** about this all ya want i don't care. When i worked for my cousin we would always break the whips off of his dump trucks on trees and when we asked him why not move them to the driver side that was the reason i was given and the same goes for the stacks.

Does it look like it's not sagging?! I still want a lil rake in the front without sacrificing height in the rear!

No but I did get pulled over a few weeks ago for that reason. Gave me the whole 27" of exposed tire schpeel... Needed to have flaps and font plate...

Get this, he's the same state trooper that pulled me over this time last year.... FOR THE SAME TWO REASONS! HAHAHAHA

Um the guy that put it in that does my stereo stuff like that. The pieces are really thin that he used and the sides have like 2 plastic plates that go on the d3 (screwed to it).

I only had him do it because he is the only guy I trust to do my stereo stuff if I'm not doing it. He also did my bypass, and the good kind where you swap pins on the harness instead of a switch or however else you do it.

Gotcha, with the F90BT you can actually change a setting in the unit itself, so no hardwire required. The kit I got sounds like the one you were describing.
