Dang it I was really hoping you'd follow through with the Hummer wheels. I want to run 05+ axles but also MTRs and I still don't know if it can be done for sure.

i can tell you for sure from a bunch of threads I have seen, 16.5" wheels will only clear if you run a minimum of 3.5" back spacing.
the 17s I got are tight around the front calipers, cant fit a finger in there.
9" wide 0 offset.

and recentered to an 8x170 of course.

No real way around this unless oyu get custom spacers from arrowcraft and thats 720 for 4 of em. The 8x170 really screws it up for running military wheels on the cheap.
with new wheels and tires, black rock 997s, cooper s/t maxx 37s, taxes mounted installed etc total package im at 1700. Its alot but 17s are more common and can run any tire I wish pretty much. The wheels are i think 16-17 pounds lighter a piece than the 24 bolt h1 wheels too. the h1s do look bad *** though.

I've heard about the 3.5" rule but nothing concrete. I don't even care about the Hummer wheels, it's the tires I want. Plain steelies work for me since I won't be airing down. If I can get some aftermarket steelies in 8x170 with enough backspacing and a high load rating I'll be set.

dont update much ver here, my main thread is ove ron oil burners.

heres some pics that came in or are coming in.


$30 bucks for htis, picked up a 2500# wireless remote winch to replace the hand crank.

painted. buiulding the rear parking brakes up tonight




should be in next week.

C code springs




06 172" WB frame from texas, got my first coat of paint on it. Came with a class 5 hitch on it already. No fuel tank as of yet, want to get a roller on tires first to see what im dealing with. these new frames have a big cross memebr on the rear.

tires should be here in a couple days. Got some 2" long spline drive lug nuts so people dont punk my wheels.

ordered a set of header flanges from justin at R&D to start mocking up my customheaders and uppipes for the turbo, and a bunch of V band clamps.

going to grab a 6.0 intercooler soon, waiting on a set of factory 4" lift blocks for the rear, Should be a full roller by end of next week.

Dude this is killer. How much fab work are you going to have to do to get the cab to bolt up and sit right? Is the frame the same width? I thought SD frames were wider.

frame is 37" wide. pretty sure obs frames are the same.
I dunno i figured moving or making a couple cab mounts is the easy part vs fabbing trac bar mounts, sway bar mounts, drilling liek 50 new holes, lining up the radius arms etc.

one thing i dont know how to do yet is adapting my steering column to the new 05 steering shaft, and how to use the SD PS pump for the hydroboost. OR get an old F-superduty PS pump but then i need metric to std fittings. everything else should just drop right on. Im making my own front end and rad support so im not worried about things lining up. Im not going for a factory look

I don't know much about resto-mods, but doesn't the cab go on and then the seat goes IN the cab?
