    Thanks guys:waytogo: It's fun to drive as well.I get a chuckle every time wifey climbs in....she does good for a 69 year old Great-Grandma LOL She doesn't like to drive it because as she says...''it's so big!and that thing out front....''.She loves her '99 so she'll be driving it for many years to come.

    I run 275/60 r20, which is equivalent to 33x10.5 in standard. I have a 3” body lift, no suspension lift. They only rub at extreme lock while working the suspension.

    Dang that's a clean rig. Those 33's look sweet with your lift. That's exactly the stance I want. Are you running wheel spacers or is that stance all wheel offset/backspacing?

    All wheels,no spacers,but I don't know the back spacing since they were on it when I bought it in '08.Whoever set this thing up knew what they were doing as it tracks arrow straight,drives smooth and can cruise at 75-80 on the freeway easily.the only downside to it is the rpm...since the diffs are 4:56s it runs about 2500,not real conducive to good gas mileage(8-9 usually).I recently replaced a few broken exhaust manifold bolts on the drivers side,not fun but I got it done.I really need to re-polish the wheels again as they are a but dull currently.The really nice thing is these tires wear evenly,no weird wearing just nice and even across the tread.
    If I remember correctly the PO said he had all the work originally done at 4 Wheel Parts in Van Nuys,Ca.,not too far from me and done in '02.

    I was sick of washing it so much since I live on a gravel road so I ripped a couple of plastic semi truck mud flaps in half on my table saw and fastened them to the fender flares to keep the road grime off of it.
    It does look a little better without them, but it helps keep the MI road salt off my cherry Cali body if I keep them on.
