Here are some quickie photos of Kris's truck. He has a few more pictures on his roll and then we'll have more.

I love the way this truck looks!

3" bodylift
4" Trailmaster
33" Baja Claws

(lost photos)

Know I just need him to cut the bottom of his bumper off!

The 01's seem to have a tiny bit more room only because of the rocker panel design. Other than that and shape, they are the same.

BTW, he has plenty of room for 35's.

34s ?

i knew the had more space. I think it makes a difference since that where I rub. Are those BIAS claws or radials? You think SSR 33.9x12.5 would fit with just the 4" on a 00? :D

They are radials and no the 33.9's would not fit.

It is a Surco Safari Rack, I have the 40x50 sized one. It makes no noise at all and it is solid as a rock. I like it better than the other ones out there, because it is made of aluminum so it is light. I lifted it on top with the tire carrier already mounted on it by myself. Here is where I ordered mine from...

Here is the page from there catalog...

Thanks,
I think that I am going to get it.

Which lights did you get? I hope that you don't mind me asking, but it looks so good. I usually like round light, but your X looks great with the rectangle lights.
How did you wire those through your roof?
You probably told many people this already, but I did not see it on the board. Thanks for all your help.
Are you going to Attica next weekend? Looks like a lot of people are going. I am lookin forward to it. Hope to see you there.

The lights are real cheapo lights. $24 a pair at Pep Boys. They are called Ralley and they are only 55w each. I just can not justify spending more than $30 on a set of lights that I will only use maybe twice a year. Autozone and Walmart also carry lights called Blazer and they are a little bigger, but still 55w. I am replacing mine next year with them.
As for the wiring, I just drilled a hole and ran 3 wires (1 ground and two power through. If I was to do it again I would just go through the back hatch, because with the Safari Rack you can hide the wires. I put the lights on before the rack, so I didn't have any way to hide them.
I am also looking forward to Attica, this is going to be my last run of the year. See ya there.
