It's Been Awhile

Postby BcP28 - April 21st, 2016, 9:32 am

I've made a handful of changes to my 2010 since I last roamed this board. Most notably wheels and tires as well as new LED lights and a new stereo. :thumb:

Image
New wheels are Raceline Raptor 16x8 with 0mm offset. Tires are Hankook Dynapro ATM 245x70R16.

Image
Single row LED light bar on the basket with Thule bike carriers on either side.

Image
4 LED light pods mounted to the front. The 'tow' hook is for tying down a kayak to roof, not actually for towing. It's just bolted into the steel bumper underneath.

Image
Jensen Vx7020 with bluetooth and navigation. It's cheap but it does the job. Sound is amazing for stock speakers.

Enjoy!

Me too! What kind of suspension modifications did you have to make to get those wheels to work, BcP28? :shrug:

Thanks! I really like the way they look as well :shades: As far as suspension mods, there aren't any :shrug: It's still the same suspension that was on when it was built 160,000 miles ago. The driver-side tire just barely rubs when the wheels are turned all the way to the left, but other than that there aren't any clearance issues. I just made sure the hub diameter of the wheel was big enough, the back spacing and offset were both reasonable, and 245 width tires will fit 7 and 8 inch wheels, so it really didn't take much :yes:

I have the same deck in my '05. I bought it because it was one of the cheapest ones with nav, so far so good after about 8 months. :yes:
