What! what happen to the dually wheels in the back. Love the look of a dually with no fender flares. But you are building a desert truck.

Looking good, wondering if you have any close ups of the spot lights, I want a set but can't figure out where they would go.

I know, trust me it kills me! I really dig the look too. I've got a spare set of 03 Dodge Dually wheels that work on my 01 Cummins, my flatbed trailer, and I suspect this truck too. I also have the wheel spacer for the front, so I will run the duallies (if they fit) every once in a while. I need these 35's for mach up. I've got a set of glass fenders and need to make the front end fit within them when I cut and extend the beams.

My town (Escondido, CA) has Cruisin' Grand where classic cars cruise. It's a family tradition to cruise every Friday night April-Sept. and show off DirtyDeedsIndustries!! The Ford CrewCab would look bitchen with flared fenders and WIIIIIIIDE front end sportin duallies with no rear fenders. I'll post up pics when I do it

I'll try and get em in the next few days. During the week I leave in the morning in a hurry and get home after dark, so it might take a while to get em. Email over the next weekend if I don't get em up over the week as a reminder. dirtydeedsindustries@gmail.com

Looking good Keith. Did you end up grabbing those 32's I sent you the link for? I would guess not since this thing is rolling on 35's. I also forgot it was an 8 lug truck when I sent that link. Had a little brain fart...

It looks like you have some spacers in the spring, only reason I ask is I have 33's and my tires are even closer to my fenders. I don't know if it is because you don't have a 460 and are missing some sheet metal but you have a lot more room then me.


Diging the fam no kids yet but have a niece and nephew about that age and they are a blast. Hope mine enjoy trucks as much as yours look like they do

s

LOL, thx for the link though.

I've had the 35's sitting in my shed for about a year, unfortunately a buddy of mine was going to Ocotillo Wells last year through Julian and hit a patch of black ice. Straight into an embankment and it was all over with. I went up and got him home, 3 of his tires were literally brand new so he gave em to me. I bought one new tire and stuck em on my Tundra. Jumped the Tundra, took a chunk of tread out of the tire and took em back off. They've sat ever since. I used the money I got at the recycling yard for the flatbed to mount and balance them. I bought the rims at Summit Racing the price was right and the specs fit right where I wanted them to.

The sheet metal definitely helps, I never tried to fit these wheels/tires with inner fenders installed. I will maybe someday put in some sort of mini inner fender, but will never run stock inner fenders on this truck.

The spacers, as you probably already know, are to raise the front end back up since the old springs sag from being old, they are to correct the negative camber. But come to think of it sometimes it seems as if there is a slight amount of positive camber. I'll put a level on it this weekend and see where it sits. Maybe it is lifted slightly?

I'll go back through this thread this weekend, I now have 2 questions to answer

Sorry, just your truck is very close to mine and just trying to compare. my tires hit the top of the fender flair, i have not looked at my camber much might be worth a try and see if they are sagging on me, thanks.

glad to help. here's how you check: grab a 2' level. put your truck on a level surface. set the level on the side of the tire in front or in back of the hub. Basically vertical from 2 o clock to 4 o clock, or from 10 o clock to 8 o clock. If you go too far in the center of the wheel you'll get a false reading from the bulge of the tire.

I'll post up pics this weekend.
