I think beer30's dropped red dually looks cleaner.

I've seen that one in Diesel Power or 8 Lug mag. Awesome paint but he should have put a long bed on it first...

  • Debadge all the emblems
  • Painth the grill and the bumper red. too much chrome for me.

it may look nice but it is now a waste of a truck. If you want to lower something buy a car if you want to lift something buy a truck

Thanks for the kind comments on mine, guys! I can tell you that guy has a LOT more $ in his than I have in mine. That wheel setup is $5K minimum.

The truck has a nice stance, but someone needs to learn how to measure backspacing.
Those are AmericanForce wheels. Mine was originally supposed to be in their booth at SEMA in 2008. Didn't work out. I had a chance to get a set of these wheels (in 24-inch) for a song.

It's not a back-spacing issue. It is an ADAPTER issue. Those wheels are big-rig bolt-pattern. So, there is a cast-iron adapter on the front AND rear. To make room for all of the holes (original 8) and then the whole mess of studs, the adapters are coupla inches deep. There are several reasons I didn't go with these.

1. Weight. That much aluminum WITH cast iron adapters is a BUNCH of weight (rotating mass). It's all fine once it's moving, but getting it going/stopped is another story.

2. Finding tires on the go. Granted, 22s and 24s are much more popular these days, but finding one in Needles or Barstow in these exact sizes may be difficult. Good way to ruin a trip.

3. I can't do the whole tire sticking half-out of the rear fender(s) thing. Looks afterthought, to me, like it doesn't belong. I like all of my stuff to look like it COULD have come from the factory.

4. Kinda back to #2, I can keep/run my spare. Get in the middle of nowhere and blow, say, TWO tires. I can always go single on one side of the rear to fix another corner.

Keep in mind, these are great wheels - probably about the best made. They are pricey, but you get what you pay for. A billet spacer/adapter would be lighter and just as strong, but the cast piece is super-strong. Did I mention it's HEAVY? It's about like bolting an additional brake-rotor onto each corner.

Anyway, I did my homework before settling on my 17s. I just decided they look better than 16s, I could keep my stock tire size and thus run my spare - or be able to purchase a new tire easier.

X2.

In my former life, I would have been tarred, feathered and then fired for putting wheels on like that.

I dig it but those rear fenders are gonna look great when the tires kiss them... Or if its limited to not hit thats gotta be a rough ride.
