Re: Look what just drove up in my driveway, it's Rusty!

Looks great! I would have expected your track width difference to be more than 1"........what front axle do you have?

Did you spray rattle-can black on the rear full floater hubs?

I have a Dana 60 up front I think. I still have not received my parts list from Quigley. Apparently they have forgotten me.

Yes, my rear hub is rattle canned for the moment, I sandblasted it and primed and sprayed it but I'll be spraying it to match the wheels soon.

Thanks for the compliments everyone!

Yep, now that his van is almost done, it's time for Scotty to sell it and start all over (again).

Lol. Not so fast. Not nearly done. Haven't even gotten out and enjoyed it yet.

Always amazing what a difference a set of wheels makes. Really pulls the van together! Looking good...

Hey Scott, those are nice wheels - are they 8 X 6.5" bolt pattern? If so, where did you find them?

I got the green light for new wheels, so I'm looking around.

Project is looking good. Waiting for warmer weather up here to get more done on the van. Cheers - B

I didn't get my suspension done yet so it will go up an inch or two, but NO rubbing except a tiny bit on the inner plastic on full right lock, so after the new Fox shocks I will be fine. . . . .
Who cares about diesel vs. gasser when it all comes down to good looking wheels & tires with a lift?
