Nothing about that conversion is cheap, let me tell you. I believe that you need a 6 or 8" lift to be able to run 22.5's.

Don't get me wrong, if I had the coin I would have done it. I love the look.

You don't need a lift to run 22.5's (look at all the lowered Superduty's on 22.5's), but you're right in that its not cheap. The rims alone are between $500 and $700 EACH. And then you need adaptor plates to go from 8 lug to 10 lug (another $800 total). And you still need tires.

What a find at a junk yard. Are they in good shape? I am not lucky enough to find steals like that.

Post pics as your build progresses.
