I'm not knocking your video at all, BTW. You did a great job on it. I just thought it was hilarious how badly your words were misinterpreted. Some of the stuff it came up with was rather funny.

Got one side done fairly painlessly. Still need to torque everything down. I will make a video when I do the other side tomorrow.

Doing one side before you do the video so you look a pro eh?

Just kidding, looking great! Can't wait to see it back on all fours!

Alright. It was exhausting and took me two days, but I am done T-swapping. I videoed most of it except the last part of the m205 swap because I ran out of time. I will be putting that video together and posting it as soon as I can. Here are some pictures of the finished product:















Still to do soon:

* AAL on the back.
* Spacer for the back wheels (Where do I get one and what size do I need to match front, anyone know?)

To do when I get more money:

* 4.10 gears front and back
* Locker for the m205?? Please ARB....give us a locker this christmas.

We manufacture the best Wheel Spacers money can buy | Motorsport Tech. <--- These guys are local to me. Good reviews and good prices. I think 2" would be pretty close. You could always measure your track width front and rear, but 2" is probably the biggest size you'd want for a truck that goes off road (not even sure if they make them bigger than that, actually).

Make sure you get longer wheel studs for the spacers. I always recommend 1.5" spacers, that's what we run. I wouldn't go more than 2" spacers just my personal opinion/preference though.

Don't most spacer kits come with the studs built-in?

Thanks for the info, went ahead and got 2" from them, the price was good compared to others I've seen. What are the sort of issues with spacers and off roading?

I think Nat is referring to the smaller spacers that are like shims.



Most 1" and above spacers are called "spacer/adapters" where they have wheel studs pressed in just like a wheel adapter, but with the same original bolt pattern.
