You should move to Florida, as long as you have headlights, tailights and tires that dont extend 6 inches past the fender (you can fab fenders) you're good to go. Theres a guy here who has a body lifted Dakota on super swampers and a pinion brake who drives around town. But than again people (and cops) in N. Florida don't pay much attention to lifted vehicles as they're all over the city lol

Took a little longer to ship than I thought, but Stazworks called to today to tell me they have booked the truck and I should get my wheels later this week!

Now I will be able able to verify clearances before committing to the wheelbase. It goes without saying, but I'm going to get the rear tires as close to the cab as I can.

Nope.... he must be a intruder. I don't do motorcycles and if I did, it would be a chopper not a crotch rocket... not that I have anything against them, but it just wouldn't fit... to give you an idea, I played DT in high school football and DE semi-pro.

For me, Rook is a derivative of my real name. My dad was Big Rook and I was lil' Rook.

I picked up my wheels today. All things considered, I'm overjoyed Stazworks thought of me when these became available. You'll see their twins in TTC this year due to a change in backspacing by the original customer. For me, it just meant revising my original intent to run with the hubs in. Now with the hubs out, I can add disc breaks in the future if I feel the need.



Also finished getting the hubs freshened up and put back together. I'm replacing all the wheels studs due to their condition and should get them from FleetPride sometime tomorrow.



Ran into a hitch when putting the breaks together. When I bought the calipers, I mistakenly neglected to account for flipped my rear chunk and whole front axle, so my bleed valves are both down.... something I will remedy tomorrow, but they served their purpose for mock-up.



As long as this truck has been in project status, it's been known as StormTrooper, but with all the red I have been instinctively adding, I'm thinking about going with ShockTrooper once the project is over... I can even add some "Shocker" gussets.

Shock Trooper has a nice ring to it. How are you going to fix the bleeder valve? those rims are really nice as well with the red accent

I can swap the calipers with those intended for the opposite side. That should put the bleeder up instead of down. Had I left the axles alone and didn't do all the rotating and flipping, these would have been correct.

New studs and nuts came in today, so got those in. My little 1/2" drive impact wrench got a work out... I may have to invest in 3/4 drive with a little more torque before I start on the front axle.

It amazes me how the Rockwells can make 20" wheels look small.
