joesho76 asked "just wondering what offset your running ?"

Joshy quoted " Personally I think it needs the -15 offset, would have got more if I could..."

From Lcool...

I just happened to be reading the 35" tire section. ;)
Cheers

you shouldnt have to modify anything for on the street. The superflex arms push the diff forward and i had to trim the bullbar to clear offroad properly.

Damn I've been hiding under a rock. Didn't realise you had a 76 till i saw it haulin the nav about. It sure gets up and goes well mate. Good lookin rig mate, might get a chance to see it in action on the tracks someday.

What happened withe trailer today mate with the nav on it? I tried calling you up on the uhf at the speed camera to let u know the trailer was smoking then next thing a bit of rubber flicks out then the wheel comes of and heads bush. Hope u got it sorted alright and lucky u pulled it up ok.

Thanks for tryin mate! Trust it to be the time the UHF isn't on. I'm guessing you were in the truck?
I think the brake on the wheel locked on and self destructed, I seen the smoke just as the wheel flicked out... Was lucky it happend where it did with so much room on the side of the road considering we just got down mt vic.
Spat most of the brake set up and obviously the hub. Got the nav off and unhitched the trailer and went into lithgow to get a new hub. Had a full tool kit thankfully that I carry with the nav as one of the old bearings didn't want to come off.

We were on the road again in about 2hours

Yeah it has. I would've called into macca's to have a chat but had to much freight to move and not much time to do it.
