They came with the wheels but my 7 Year old daughter thinks they look cool, so they will be staying. They are just plastic covers that screw onto the lug.

The LS engine really is quite impressive. The Checkmate is still in hibernation down at Lake Cumberland, and with the COVID-19 stuff going on, I'm working from home so I am doing lots of sanding on the dually. In fact, I actually got some color sprayed on the doors the other day. She's not going to be a show truck, but it'll be fun to drive and pull the boat with!!

That truck will be bad ass and will be the total tow pigg w/your boat behind it.

This was my "coolest" tow pigg. Actually its license plate said "tow pigg".

'69 Dodge Polara, 383 rag top.
Was in line at a ramp w/it yrs ago, top down, hotty GF (of the time) in a very revealing bikini beside me, and a guy pulled up in a way cool Lincoln w/a hot rod 5.0 in it.
We were admiring each others rigs when he checked out my GF and said, "man, you have all the toys"

Ive been avoiding car, toys. Don't think I have the gray matter left for that and the boats.

Already have three V-6 225 JohnRudes inline to be rebuilt.
