Bettis..off the DL

k so recently I had a second hub replaced on the truck, and got it back a couple of days ago. Some of you may have read the post about the 07 grille ....anyway while we were waiting on the hub to arrive, I swapped wheels and tires...again....


It looked like this when I got it....




..then this about 3 months ago...




then this.......



those wheels and tires went on this truck.....




and these wheels and tires....




went on Bettis....






So what was the purpose of this....I have no idea.... Actually the F-250 HAD 20's w/33's and the owner wanted "more tire, less rim" his truck would only clear 33's and they rubbed a bit on the inner finder, his springs are a little soft. So after some negotiation, I gave him my stuff, and he gave me his, and then I went and bought some 37"s for the 20's. Should have the new shoes on by Tuesday......woo-hoo



oh and here are the new headlights and side markers and the new/old grille....'bout time
