Working on it sir. Pulled them the other day and measured the largest offset I can fit. Truck has a 3800 stall and I haven’t even got close to that in RPM yet. Per my gauges, I gave it 40% throttle max so far.

Got the bed back on and ran it with the laptop hooked up monitoring all the gauges and sensors. Running like a top. Front lock ups, exhaust and electric dumps should be here soon. Rear wheels and tires coming soon as well.

The truck went sideways equipped as is, so you order a 250 shot of NOS and some bigger tires?! I like the way youíre thinking!
