Re: Project (Garage Built '91)

yeah i was thinking that too at first, but i did some research and a 235 30 22 is 9.5 inches wide. and when im doing a 3 inch body drop, smallest tire possible is what im going for. i have seen a 235 mounted to a 9 inch wide wheels and they are pretty square on the side wall.

Re: Project (Garage Built '91)

Unless you are going to the pinch weld only, you won't be fitting those 22's under stock sheet metal.

Those arms look really nice too. But i doubt they will lay a 22 wheel and tire. They are lacking some specific design properties that all flat plate style arms like that do, which is an angled mounting plate.

It's looking good though. Im liking the new wheels a lot. Just trying to point out a couple details before you start really getting going on it and then run into problems.

so will running power performance ball joints correct that? and any constructive criticism is greatly appreciated.

Re: Project (Garage Built '91)

took a break from the truck to do some training out in the field. My good friend at chadcrissdesigns.com has been working on it for me. he is building me a new frame, along with a new back half.

Re: Project (Garage Built '91)

Awsome build love 1st gens the paint and wheels look great together very clean work. The back half is killer too cant wait to see more on this. one question is on the brake booster, did you just remove the booster and use master cylinder only? If so how good of a pedal does that set up have. im about to tub my firewall and stuff and not sure what set up would be best a waylayed booster, hydro, and now i see this way. any input will be appreciated keep up the good work truck looks great!!!

Re: Project (Garage Built '91)

Awesome truck man! I saw that backhalf pic in the random Cell phone pics thread and I had to see the rest of the truck. It looks fantastic.

But keep up the good work I am definitely going to be following this build.

Kevin

I used to be with it, but then they changed what it was.
Now what I'm with isn't it, and what's it seems weird and scary to me.


It'll happen to you...

Re: Project (Garage Built '91)

The tapped holes are there as the theme, my wheels have five sets of seven Allen head screws around the wheel and the whole frame will have sets of seven allen head bolts going down it. I will list a pic later after the rest are installed

Nice man. What kind of axle locator are you running in conjunction with the parallel 4 link?

If so how good of a pedal does that set up have. im about to tub my firewall and stuff and not sure what set up would be best a waylayed booster, hydro, and now i see this way. any input will be appreciated keep up the good work truck looks great!!!
I decided not to run a brake booster. My good friend with the brown first gen with 22's told me to find a work truck edition, it has the plate that goes on the firewall and a different style pedal. I haven't driven it with the 22's yet but with 20's it does ok with out a booster and has more room to clean things up under the hood

Re: Project (Garage Built '91)

Did you have to skip around welding it or being 3/16 thick did it not warp that bad?
