My credo
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.
Some one make that a thing... you do it now! You now!!!!! I'll fight you if you dont!!!
Jimmy Buffett made it a thing. I ain't messin with his work. Good enough as it is.

Is the backspacing on those about the same as the 15" wheels?
No idea tbh. Wanted to find a set of the ones that were on the level 2 trucks, but these will have to so for now I suppose.

Did a two-fer today. My lawyer has an ‘00 flareside that needed service. Replaced his pads n rotors, spark plugs n wires ( fixed the rough running when cold), engine flush and oil change, some Lucas injector cleaner in a fresh tank of gas. He uses it rarely to haul stuff around. Runs like a top now. My ‘03 got an electrical system upgrade, 130A Explorer alternator and a Group 65 850CCA NAPA Legend battery. I’ve picked up a gig doing maintenance for a restaurant group, so I needed to reconfigure my work truck. I’ve installed a 4000w peak inverter to handle keeping my DeWalt batteries charged up and provide power for wired tools when needed. I ripped out the jump seats years ago and built out a tool crib to keep all my stuff safe n sound. I also installed a couple of Garmin dash cams, a 66w facing front and a Mini facing rear. I just wrapped a 2 month remodel for this restaurant group, 7 days a week. Hope to jump on the ‘85 here in the next couple weeks and get the engine & trans put in.

I used to see that kind of stuff when I lived in the UK all the time. The foreigners that ran corner stores would smuggle in anything that sold well from foreign countries because it was cheap AF compared to domestic goods, then keep prices the same as domestics. Would double to triple their profit margins, or at least that's what I was told

You're supposed to check that stuff so the rest of us will know. :p Tires look about the same in the fenderwells. I'd like to find a set of those for my truck.

Those wheels have a 4.5 inch backspace... same as the Alcoa 15 inch wheels.

Naw, sounds good to me. Any idea what RPM you've got?

Mine idles about 1200 for too long. Eventually drops to about 950 in park. I think this is too high but it's been that way for a long time.
