If he's thinking ahead he'll have a jack stand in the back that he can lower the axle onto for changing the wheel.

Or do they all come from the factory that way?
I hear the rear wing (I call that a "cheese slicer") really helps on front-wheel-drive beaner-boxes.
Out here, it's not a Monster decal, it's the checkmark from INS that covers the entire rear window.
Or a nike logo, they look the same.
Salt Lift and Yeti now. Bone Collector is another of my favorites. Usually have mossy oak seat covers and matching rain guards.

Bone Collector.
What does that even mean?
There was a book & film with that title, IIRC.

"Throw me a bone here" - Dr Evil
"I got a fucking bone for you to collect" - me

People are fucking retarded.
Why would you put giant advertisements for companies on your car, or shirt, or whatever?
I know they aren't paying you for it.
And, you probably BOUGHT that giant nike logo to put on your car.
Asshole.

The more I look at that truck the more I dislike it. I absolutely hate those douchebag wheels. A guy down the street from me has a sweet restored classic Bronco but he has douchey rims on it. Ruins the whole thing.

Asshole.
It is how SnowPeak is to yuppie douchbags, as Bone Collector is to rednecks. It's a "brotherhood". It's like the supreme glory hole for Dan - both in the same household.

Default Re: Holy crap!! It was way nicer than the pictures.

Thank you guys! This forum makes me sooo thankful that not everyone out there is a total db! I don't know how we got to where a truck needs wheels bigger than 16-17" max. Some people like to show off by having things that say "look at me, I have enough money to have something really stupid that sets me apart from you" -I get it. But why the **** do so many sheep have to follow suit to the point where stupid is mainstream, and it gets incorporated into every new truck/suv??

Cause with big awesome brakes, you need room to clear the caliper/rotor.

How do full-size trucks pulling trailers stop with little wee-wee 16" wheels?

Ha, I assume it's about speed?

I don't know if the math works out, but maybe harder to stop 5000kg going 150mph vs. 15000kg going 70mph?

Brakes were never a problem before with regular wheels, why now?? My old toyota tundra had 16" wheels and 4-piston calipers in front, as does my buddy's 4Runner. Why oversized rotors/calipers now for trucks that are getting lighter all the time?? Fords are aluminum now for ****'s sake.

The idea that you need bigger wheels to fit over bigger brakes is just an excuse. These trucks don't need 15 inch rotors....it's all part of the bling. It's even better when you see giant wagon wheels with tiny rotors or, better still, tiny drums.

Wowie! All that bling/$ on a binder? And street tires? Whats the point. I guess as an official “old jack ass” I am 55 after all. I have little use for the, I bought me a blinged out ride crowd. Thats a perfect example of to how do I take something with some level of utility and potential and make it worse than it started. The body and paint looks good. But I am betting its got more body filler than Megan Kelly.....

Off the topic yet actually it fit really well into my compact JD tractor wheel when it got stuck. raised the wheel and placed a ladder under it to get out of a bog I didn?t know was there.

If it was an Icon, it would have had a lizard stuck on it somewhere.

It would also be patently obvious. Icons are a bit like a water moccasin; you don't need to know what they look like to know beyond a shadow of a doubt that you're staring at one.

The last Icon I saw was so damned smooth you could drag your nuts all over it, inside and out, without a single snag; well, as long as you avoid the lizard, anyway.

Cheers,

Kennith
