Talking SCT Finally!

Took my truck into the dealership today to have the rear diff looked at. Guess the clutch pack for the LSD was shot. I noticed that it was acting up before I got the new wheels and tires. Was planning on burning off the old 38's, but a peg leg smoke show is just lame.

Getting my truck back, my SCT X3 finally showed up, new LSD in the rear, and an old set of 38's just laying around. What would you guys do?

As soon as I can get some time to swap the old wheels back, expect to see a burnout video or 2.

Yah, I got a set of 20" BMF S.O.T.A. Wheels. Listed in my sig.

Yes, the burnout will be a good test. I figure a pair of 38" toyo's will smoke pretty good.

They rubbed the radius arm so no full lock turns. Pulling into a driveway with an incline..the rear of the tire would hit the fender. I looked at 37x13.5 and there wasn't a whole lot of clearance on the fender and it would still hit the suspension. The 36x15.5 don't rub on the suspension and I cant get em to the fender(I tried!). I am pretty sure my new wheels have a -19 offset if that helps any.

Procomp recommends no larger than a 35" tire for a 6" lift, but they look way too small.
