I was a little worried when I loaded them into the truck, but I think they are just the right size. I'm fighting my width more than anything else. I'm running them on the stock H1s for now with 2 inch spacers.

you have a chev dana 60 right? I have a set of dually hubs that would space the front out? We could work out some sort of trade for your single wheel hubs? I have been looking for a set of SRW hubs.

Have you cycled the suspension with your new tires on? Maybe they'll clear and you can save yourself some work?

Mine is a Ford KP 60. The front is tight but not too bad, I may need to limit the steering an inch or so. The rear 14bolt is where I need a touch more room. I rub my airshocks on the side walls during articulation. I have some longer brackets to move the top of the shock in a few inches. Should be enough to clear.

Well you gotta love pulling apart a rig that someone else built. My Ford KP 60..... has Chevy knuckles. After I installed the new tires I was checking clearances and noticed my driver side high steer arm was loose because 3 of the stud holes are stripped. Picked up a Ford knuckle and pulled it apart to find the modification lol. Now I need to source a Chevy knuckle

Well I installed 8 new (factory reconditioned) Bosch Mustang injectors, and 4 of them stopped firing and stuck open. The company sent me new ones, but it set me back trying to troubleshoot. Also found the phantom radiator leak that happened on Pickle down in Moab. I thought it was a burping hose, but I pressure washed the radiator and found a pinhole leak that was covered in gunk. I guess when I built pressure it was enough to push through the gunk intermittently. New radiator will go in this week and the engine will hopefully be GTG for a while.
