I like how quiet they are but they seem a little soft. And I really dont like the fact that they are directional. You can only rotate front to back and if I get a flat I can only hope that it matches my spare. I ended up using the BFG as my spare on long trips so I dont have to worry about it but my chrome H2 rim and spare X Terrain look better on the carrier.

This is an old picture with just the leveling kit but it sits pretty much the same now. Just about an inch higher all the way around.

Ha ha! I knew YOU would say that! They are pretty nice though. I especially like the little skull stamps. Too bad you cant see them when the arms are installed.

Thanks man. The arms are sure a lot beefier than stock and your joints look pretty stout. The truck sits even better now with Thuren's shackles. Its within a 1/4 inch level front to back. I might go with the bottom hole next and leave it about a 3/4" high in the back just so it will sit level when towing my dirt bike trailer:thumbsup

Oh yea, I installed my Diprocols too! The picture sucks cause I left the flash on but they are actaully pretty sweet looking. It was a busy weekend! My garage is trashed and my tools are scattered everywhere but at least my truck is almost done. Yea, right!:rof

Can you get a better picture of the gauges, I think I have the exact same interior. Do the gauge's match the dash like speedo?

Im offshore working for the week but I can get some better pics when I get home. I will say this though, Diprocols are the best match for our trucks. I did alot of asking around and looking as guages before I bought them. They are great looking guages.

Nice lookin' rig! That's a great way to mount an oversize spare. Mine just floats around under my Access cover.
Thanks! I got tired of mine bouncing around back there too. The Tiregate is cool cause you can mount the tire angled in our out and the rack opens so it still works like a tail gate. And in the "out" position you still have the whole bed for space.

I've got King 2.5 with piggy back resevoirs back there and the res. will hit the tire when I compress the suspension. Even before the Kings were on the spare would rub the rear diff cover enough to take the paint off.

Ok, the res. hits I can understand, but I have run 2 trucks with a 35" spare and it doesnt even come close to the diff cover. Mine are 35"x12.5"x17"
