    Rim size. My NPR tires are 12p.r. but only 16 inch rim. $150. each mounted and balanced.

    Funny, seems like less tire equals more money.

    Done deal! All removable so I can put the salter back on in the winter.

    nice work, but I dont see it going into the receiver hitch, so how do you have it mounted to the truck? can you post a picture from the side?
    Also looking at the rear of the truck is that a strap coming down at an angle towards the far rear drivers side corner of the rack or it that 3-4" wide metal

    It's not at all mounted to the towing receiver. It's basically an extension of the truck frame rails and there are two "receivers" on the frame rails.

    He's a friend of mine. I particularly like the pro locker and the cutouts for the hi lo blades for R and R.

    I still think it should be chromed though.

    He has since rhino lined the entire thing.
