mine are 3/4" shorter then how they came from jason originaly


edit... i was thinking... since you over body droped your truck and the frame is not laying on the ground now when laid.... do you even need to trim the cups down at all? :dunno:

Not to whore but while we're on the subject. I've got the Cool Ride with ART upper cups. I have a 225/40/18 tire in front. Any idea how much of the upper cup I need to trim to lay it out to the skid plate?

225 / 40 / 18 = 25.09"


Wheel Calculators in your bookmarks become your friends ... :D
Here's a couple I like.

Does that mean I'll have to cut the cups? I think I remember someone here telling me I had to hack off like 2" off the cups to layout the skid plate with the cool ride and tube upper and lowers and that size tire.

Can someone confirm the amount needed to be trimmed off?
