Did you do that to the fenders?! Do they stuff that much? Might just need bump-stops no?
Yeah, this is how up it goes. I'm already running 3/4" bump stop spacers so it doesn't go into the metal fender. The stock flares are almost 2" tall so spacing the bump stop further will be just throwing away suspension travel.

Pitbull Rocker Radial Tires

Picked up these wild 35 Pitbull Rocker Radials from Craigslist earlier this week. I paid $300 for all 5. 1 is whiskery new with 22/32 tread. 2 are 17/32 and 2 are bald with 12/32. Manufactured in April 2016. It was a pretty good deal. What's more lucky was Pitbull was having 50% off sale on their website ending that day. So i ordered 2 new ones to replace the bald ones.

The shoulders on these bad beast are just radically mad with zero f given. They make my 35 General Grabber X3s look like sensible all terrains tires. So you ask why I'm ditching my newly installed Grabber X3s? Wait to see what wheels I'm getting

Re: Tinkerer's T-1 Alpha Build

Are they gonna be more of an offroad only tire? Or will you run them more often? Hope your fender flare trimming is good. If not it will be done for you.

I'm gonna see how they works out. Might keep my old set for "overlanding". I need to trim my rear flares as well now. Those are some killer lugs.
