I hope this helps thanks kelly

seeings as im explaining thinga michell told me i should explain the hood insulation to yall. what we did was get the insulation witch was one big peice , then we made templets of the pieces that we wanted to fill and cut them out and then michell sewed the edges with what she calls a blanket stitch [ a setting on her sewing machine ] and then we glued them on with 3m extra strengh heat resitant clue and there ya go .

Awesome. Thank you for the information. Those are the wheels and tire sizes I wanted, I just didn't know how wide I could go. I have a stepside bed so I'll probably have to stick with 235s.
