yup! 30mm spacers. I didn't run them at first, but the turning radius just got ridiculous. 20 point K turns, 800 tries to parallel park into one spot, tires would also rub shocks when articulated... so yea, if you get 35s, get spacers.

Yeah I should mention they are a bit sketchy. I think its only two guys that run the business. I got a call the night before, asking me if I could drive one of their guys out to Montauk. I couldn't because I was driving out Monday night to my brothers place to see him and to cut the trip time in half. So then I get another call asking me to pick their guy up at the Montauk train station, so I said ok, then they call a third time telling me that their guy will meet me at my brothers place and we will drive out from there. Not to mention the guy drank a RedBull and fell asleep on me on the way out and the way back...then I asked myself how the hell do you fall asleep in a Defender on the highway? Anyway, I meet "their guy" and he asks me,

Guy: "Do you have any cleaning products for the truck?"

Me: "I have some water in the back incase the radiator overflows and some towels and some Armor All somewhere back there. Don't they have guys at the shoot that will clean up the car?"

Guy: "No, thats our job"

Me: "Our job? so what did you bring?"

Guy: "Nothing"

I see a problem with the steering wheel. It's on the wrong side.

Seems like that could have been right out of a Tarantino movie.

your truck looks great--you repped the community well. Not a bad days work for $400. Of course, you should spend it all on the D90.

Thank you very much! Trust me that 400 is going right back to us. Either money toward Paul & Ron's custom rear bumper or some other parts that will be needed down the road.

$400 would be perfect for one set of your 4.11's!

Hmmm, did they reimburse you for fuel/travel expenses? If not, how much is left after paying for the fuel? LOL!

$400, nice. My truck was in a photo shoot a few years ago for Belk dept stores. Not a penny to me??? But it was cool to see the hot chick in my truck, and then have the pic show up in my mailbox on a flyer the next month. Yes, it's framed

Someone told me the photos of my truck were in a Kohl's catalog. I think it was an insert in the paper for black Friday, or this past Sunday. I need to check it out.

Somebody mentioned it but never said which issue (and since I don't have the yearly subscription....).
