some red paint on the sleeper and it should really look good.


Or white to match the trailer... White with a couple of black and yellow swoops would be sweet.


You are in my head. My wife was just saying that today.

Lol. Yes. Had haring three days ago. Long story. Will update later. But the magistrate needs more time to research the law.
At least he is going about it the correct way and NOT believing everything the LEO had to say. I have seen magistrates that believed LEO's walked on water and their word was his law....

Amen. I am hoping for the best. I cant drive it till I get ruleing. The dot cop was bad. He put posters up at State Police station a month ago telling his buddy's to tow it if they see it.

Looking good! Any updates on your legal issues with the pickup?

Slap a cattle guard on it a few spikes and you're ready for Mad Max IV

"...the magistrate need more time to research the law." Don't these magistrates and judges get info on a case BEFORE the case is heard??? I had a judge reschedule a child support hearing with two couples and two attorneys present because she thought a rep from Child Support should attend. It was one of those days I wish I had a roll of duct tape for my head so it didn't explode.

Best of luck to you in this one. Have you decided if you are going to run for sheriff yet?


Time to plan to camp.

If you could see these spacers. You would see they are of high quality. The law code says I can have 1/4 inch spacers. But I had 3 inch. But if that is the best problem he could find after the major change I did with adding 3rd axel. Then I am doing good.

Here is pic of spacers



Just catching up on this thread - missed it for a while.

One thing that might be worth checking is this: I've spoken to Leo's in both CA & UT, and the distinction between spacers & adapters makes all the difference in terms of what's legal and what's not. The way I've seen it defined is that spacers slide over the existing studs, but you still use those same studs to bolt the wheel on. Adapters are designed like your picture above - they bolt to the existing studs, and have a second set of studs for the wheel to bolt to. And it doesn't matter if the adapter is from the same bolt pattern to the same bolt pattern - they're still considered "adapters", and they're still legal - at least in CA & UT.

I don't know if this is the same where you live, but it might be worth checking into. If it's the same there, maybe you could show the pictures above and explain that they qualify as adapters, not spacers.
