Thanks!

Josh - Rove at the Cove is a no go. While the truck is coming along nicely...it was a bit ambitious to think it was going to be ready for Rove at the Cove. However, I am thinking it will be ready in time to present it to my wife for Christmas!

Barry - Randy is not happy to have his truck in the garage...his engine bay has a huge void in it!

Looks great Chris! It is nice to see it coming alone.

Can I ask what size tires you are running?

Thanks

Thanks Tyler. They're 35 KM2. I really like the look of the tread pattern.

Thanks Chris. I like them also and will be running them on my truck as well. I did not know they made a 35" in a 16" wheel. Or are they the 315/75/16 size with spacers?

THanks

Tyler

Thanks man. So what size spacers are needed to run these? I ran 35x12.50's on 15's with 4.5 back spacing before and was good. I want to get as close as I can back to that but with some boosts or something similar.

THanks for the help.

So can you use a 300 tdi engine cover on a 2.8?

finally someone answered my dumb question. Is that your engine?

I like that the cover can be used. Gives it a factory look. The 2.8 uses the same block right?

Lots more progress:
Doors installed and properly aligned
New door cards get treated to JL audio speakers
Also added speakers to lower dash and dedicated them to CB radio

Chris, where did you get the lower dash with the speaker cut outs? Are they originally for a 110?
