Not the carrier. Rocks really don't have a carrier.
I have to pull them to install the Lincoln lockers and reverse them so they are center drop.

I don't really understand that. Other than welding them up.

They make some big units. That one weighs 155lbs. The 20k one has a 14.3" drum and weighs 300lbs.

Wow. I weighed my entire M8000 setup when I pulled it and it came in at 98lbs. That's with wire rope.

I was thinking hydraulic because I will already have a hydraulic power unit to run the 4WS.

Little work today on the Dubz. Pulled off the rings. Some of the wheels had bolts welded to the wheel for the beadlocking ring others were the factory studs. I removed all and will just use the same bolts in all. I ran them trough the blast booth and the turned out ok. I see I missed a few areas. I will have our guy at work touch them up then off to powdercoat. Dempsey gave me a few pointers on powdercoat to see if the coating will be to thick and my rings not fit back on the wheel.
I will check that out after Manny gets the wheels looking perfect.

Back is a bit sore from swinging them around all afternoon.

I'm treating the sore back with 12oz treatments. I'm on my seventh or eight treatment.

Manny cleaned the rims up for me.

Did some clearance testing as per Dempsey. Test SAT. Go for powder coat.

They should be done when I get back from Florida.
