Talking Spacers

I ran a 1/4" spacer and they only rubbed the a-arm at full droop and aired down and it was very minimal rubbing. I'm sold on these. As an added benefit, the stronger sidewall I believed help tow my camper better b/c with the Bridgestones I could only pull it at 65mph w/o sway, but with the BFG's, I went 70-75 before sway cam apparent. This was on the same road (I-85) and the truck was the same except for the tires, so I can't come up with another reason other than that. They are slightly narrower than other 285's I have had.
I'd say the spacers had something to do with the sway as you were out wider with them on. I'm considering getting some spacers as well just to get the tires out of the fender well more, mainly on the front as I usually hit on the backside on a turn w/ a stuff.

Started on Trail 5 by crossing the river, then we got on Trail 4 and after we crossed Fains Ford we got on Trail 8 and went by the top of Slickrock, after completing Trail 8, we got back briefly on Trail 4 again, and then we went down Trail 6 to where we ended the ride.

Hey guys,
Just got down to savannah a little while ago, phew what a weekend, over 1300 miles of driving and even had time for tellico in there somewhere Well, now I have to find a way to get a cf card reader b/c I have no way of charging my camera. grrr... and tomorrow I have a big test so i'm off to bed so I can get up earily and study my arse off. Then after that I have to see whats up with my 4Roc decal order and see if they are ready and if they are I'll be right by bestbuy and i'll be able to go pickup a card reader and I'll be able to put up my pics. As for the vids, send em on down!! Andy, I'll pm you my address. As for webspace, if chris can take care of it then cool but if not I'll see what I can do. Rick, I like the pics, i'll have to take a closer look at them later though b/c my eyes are getting to the heavy state and that won't help you much there since I can't even see them Was the last couple shots a panarama or did you just crop it? If its an acutal panarama we might be able to get it blown up a bit. If not, it won't be worth it. Glad to hear everyone is back save and sound. Can't wait til next time!

oh yeah,
brett is your camera dv or digital8?

andy, now you need to add "scratched" to your sig

No hurry. Just like to get informed opinions on things to improve. And no, the group shots were not panoramic, just cropped. The pano(s) Angie took should turn out much better. Mine definitely are not enlargement quality.
