Default Re: suburban/ranger what i have done and what i am doing

didn't get many pics as i was working on the bumper this weekend. however got the holes drilled and the fairlead hole cut out and the main plated bolted up with the wintch on it. the only real problem that i came across is that the fairlead is not centered up.( wintch is sitting between the frame rails and it just fits like 1/4 in on each side) will have to deal with it the way it is. still need to drill the side plates and then weld them up.

**** that is sick! I love it Kieth. That last picture gave me a hard on. I have a thin sheet of metal 4x6' here at my place you can have for the hood. Easy to bend up.

and started doing a rim change from 14 wide down to 10 wide so that i can use stauns and not have to get more rims. don't have the stauns yet but wanted to see how it would be with the narrower rims first.
pic 1 rim comparing
pic 2 the front mounted
pic 3 and 4 comparing of the tires

while getting the tries off had a flap of rubber come out of the tire. doesn't seem to be any thing wrong with the first tire except for the flap that came out. the second one the rubber flap is about the same size as the first one but is still attached . for those of you that deal with tires all the time is this normal???
pic 1 what came out of the frist one that i unmounted
pic 2 what the inside of the second tire lookes like

well finished mounting the other two tires same crap in the tires. here are the pics. the ties are closer to the frame then with the 14 wide rims was expecting that. with the bump stops and limter straps should be just about right.

The smaller rims look godd but I would get away from the Aluminum for obvious reasons and try to fine a set of steel 12". If you can't run the Stauns then just get Greer to cu you a set of weld on's. I know Eric White Bread had them cut a a couple with his design and they came out really nice. You could even get Your name cut in. How about a set with "RumpRanger cut into them!?

well i don't think i will be useing them i like how the fit but run into the links while runing on flat ground. will have to see if i can find some 12 wide rims to see how they fit. might have to run weld on bead locks anyways.
