Update on anti-sway system. In place now. definately an improvement, but need to make some adjustments. I decided NOT to use coil over shocks, but instead a solid bar on each side with rod-end joints, that have left, and right threads so by turning the bar, you can lengthen, or shorten the length. What I do know is that those front tires, DO contribute to some of the sway. Reason is that they are TOO soft, i.e. no radial ply. need something much stiffer, and a tire that is meant for street driving. why they chose those tires is beyond me.

Keep us updated on the tires. I think I'll be looking for a street legal pair but don't want to stray too far from the correct look. Something you'll be doing also.

biggest problem is going to be finding tires that fit. i.e. if the front tires are much bigger, it will diminish the turn radius. On some of the CG people have done those flat tires look cool, but in real life they would probly be too wide to be of use...

Close enough for me! I think you just found the tire I'm definitely going to consider using... Looks like it still retains some what of a checker pattern and is made for the street. I am curious what the tread life and weight rating is for the tires...

Very nice build do you plan on running this on the road a lot or just a cool addition to the toys?

Great Looking build. Lurking through the forums gathering information and getting ready to start my build lists for mine. Will be keeping a close look at your updates.

First off, great job on your build. Your tumbler has been one of the primary driving forces motivating me on my build. I am wondering how you linked the 16.5x12" rims together to make them dually. Did you use a spacer?
