Who is running 24x15 rear wheels??

I'm curious about the specifics for running 24x15 rear wheels. What wheels are you using? The backspace? How many inches were taken off the rearend? Any required suspension mods? Finally, pics if you got em. We all like photos!

My mom always had the best advice. It was just a tad late. After a fall that involved blood, she'd say....."Careful!"

Please don't misunderstand, I looove the truck, but what's up with the trim on the side? The piece between the door and the bed. (the 6" or so pice on the cab) Is it supposed to be that way?

Incredible looking truck though.

The whole bed sits high if you look at the lines, maybe they had to do that to get the wheels to fit.

The rocker doesn't line up with the cab corner either.
