My temporary shoes

So i'm running my buddies 39.5 iroks on beadlocks while I dismount my 40" mtr's so I can switch to 37's. They're super crappy camera phone pics, but it gives you an idea. It was dark and gloomy out. that didn't help either...

some trade offers, but no cash... I'm just gonna keep it for awhile. Lower it 5" and put it on 37's. It'll be 7" of lift over stock on 37's. not bad...

looks like *** but it's one step closer to not being pulled over every where he goes. College towns are littered with cops pulling you over for anything and everything.....I have enough trouble with my truck when I go down there. I can't imagine the pain in the *** he has in his! lol.

Oregon Vehicle Code is 1.5" max sticking out the fender and no more than 27" of tire exposed behind the rear wheels. (iirc)

Cory's got fullsize axles, 10" wheels with a low backspace, and 40x13.50's.....his stuff sticks out pretty darn well. State Police and the local police in the town he lives in love pulling people over for equipment violations. Cory told me the first week his truck was on the road, he was pulled over 4 times in town.

You have to have mud flaps covering your tires if there is more than 27" exposed.

Its pretty much the same here in BC

^^Yeah. From the ground to 27" of exposed tire is 'okay'. Anything more requires a mudflap of sorts. I think Cory's still running his stock mudflaps. Covers 1/3 the tire width. lol.

Nope... I got pulled over 5 times in 6 days a couple weeks ago. So I put some mud flaps on. I ran no flares as long as possible. I just couldn't do it anymore. I'm 85" wide. About my whole tire would stick outside of my stock fenders. lol
