Cheers, it's all pretty common stuff. 4" beam, flipped spindles, TQR arches, straight axle rear with adjustable spring plates and some decent spacers.

Not a big Cosmic fan but those deep dish in the rear look freakin awesome. What size are your fronts? (Width)? I see he's making the Cosmics now, I think the next wheel of choice should be the Gasburners, I'd be down for a set of five.(;


Sorry thought I posted the withs. 17x7 and 17x10

Those wide five three piece wheels look great.

Found some three piece wheels for my double cab I so I can play with the offsets and widths to optimize my tire size.
They are OZ Fittipaldi 17".
Final build spec will be 9.5" 50e.t. rear wheel, 255/40/17 tire
8.5" 50e.t. front wheel, 235/40/17 tire

255 tire fits!
