i would say i like it but i cant i am so confused and dont understand why waste time and money buying a set of adapters... when you could have gotten steelies for $50 each and go get some 10" wide rims and it will look better... yes cool it has 37 but man dodge rims that are 7.5" wide i do beleave.. no

I love it, looks great, but you should get re-geared and look into brake upgrades.

I had other paint schemes planned out but they were a little more extensive and costly. This is just something simple that accents the body lines. Only thing left to paint it the grill surround. Kind of a mix between RazorsEDGE and Zabeard's with the hood, grill, and tailgate.

And yes, spidertrax adapters is what I got. 1.25" spaced jeep adapters. Work great so far, I'm still a little "iffy" on the structual integrity of these things though. New rims should be in the near future though so I won't have to worry about it too much longer.

Just wait until you get 10" wide wheels, those 37s will look A LOT bigger.

So, who makes a cheap 16x10 for 5x4.5 lug? The cheapest I found was $72 a piece for Rock Crawler 51's. Any suggestions? I got a big check comin on Monday and might as well buy some now. I'm looking for something LESS than $90 a piece.

look into cragar soft 8's, they seem to be the cheapest out of the steel rims.. and i think if you search enough you'll be able to find a wide range of backspacing for them.

There should be 3 soon...well 38's, but it's not my truck.

Mine will probably be on 'just' 35's...unless I can find a good deal on those 37's...I need a good riding tire though b/c I tow the trailer.

Don't get Cragar steel rims. There's a bunch of people who are impatient and buy them, they're very heavy wheels. A little more dough and you can get a nice set of aluminum wheels that are lightweight and look good.
