The biggest problem with using adapters is the thickness of the adapter. Most hardbody guys swap to 5 lugs to have access to more wheels that will tuck. The thickness of the adapters reduces the number of those 5 lug wheels that will still tuck. That’s my take on it anyway.

OK, I was wondering about the "fenders will be chopped n rolled and flared" part.

17x9s didn't happen. Went with 18x9.5s instead.
