I say Cross Country because It started in Michigan before transferring to North Carolina and will continue to where ever the Coast Guard takes me next.

I started with a stock 2007 TRDSE with about 34K miles on her. Purchased from a guy in Indianapolis, I drove 14.5 hours round trip from Traverse City, MI to get her and bring her home.

These were in the first week, middle of October 2009. This was on a bunker on the Coast Guard Base in Traverse City, MI.

This is her high centered after the snow started sticking to the ground.

I am selling them to a guy in Maryland. I would rather them go to someone on here, but I am guaranteed $700 for them right now.

It looks like your lights used to be blacked out but now they aren't, am I imagining that? Awesome new wheels by the way!

Same backspacing as the stockers so these stick out .5" more being 8" wide. Then add the spacers at 1.5" so should be right at 2.0" even per side.
