quick cliffs: ditched the military wheel idea
got some 17" black rock wheels
tires will be cooper discoverer s/t Maxx.
Ordered an 05 CCLB frame from texas for 760 delivered to my house thru my yard.
Figured it owuld be easier and more time effective if I make a full roller, bigger stronger stouter frame, and all the front components will just bolt right up to it! I can put the fuel tank in, run all SS brake lines, bascially have it ready to go and drop my body on it, adjust cab and bed mounts as neccessary.
New wheelbase is 172", mine is 168. so i will have to modify my rear box wheel arches. Theyre home made anyway so no big deal.
The frame will also be wired electricaly ready for the hitch, accessory lights, and my lift gate. Should be fun.
Bought some torches for 350 bucks with 3/4 full tanks. score!
