    After talking to Mr. Joe about this topic and also looking at the way the Ram Charger Central set their forum up like this, I felt as if us newbies needed a place so that we can look and see what tire/lift/wheel combo everybody is running, to decide whether or not you want yours to look the same. Also, this should cut down on some of the normal questions, such as "What size tire can I run with such-and-such a lift". Here are the things I need you to answer for me:

    1. Truck info-Year, Model, Make, Long/Short Bed, Crew/Extended/Regular Cab. Also 4wd or 2wd.

    2. What axles are you running, and what are the gear ratios. Don't just post up "stock", tell everybody what they are. Also, any lockers or limited slips or welded rears?

    3. Lift size. Who made it, or did you piece it together. Did you have to do any :hack: .

    4. What size tires you are running, and the make. Don't say 35" TSL's, because we do not know the width. Be SPECIFIC.

    5. Rim make/size/and backspacing.

    6. What kind of off-roading do you do? Is it mud, rocks, pavement, trails, everything, or what?

    And, if you want to, post up a link to your cardomain page, and 1 pic if you want to.

    Also, NO COMMENTS ABOUT SOMEBODY'S TRUCK, this is a post to say what kind of tires/lift/wheels are you running for the newbies.

    And YES, you could go to the rides and look, but this would help the newbies out to figure out what combo of lift/tires they want to run.
