Just for the record if a tire is DOT(Department of Transportation) approved that means it is street legal. The warning that you see in the catalogs means that even though it is DOT approved and technically legal to use on the street it is not very well suited for daily driver type applications or regualar street use and is designed for racing with limited (Dry street only! :lol: )street use.

You're putting a shortbed on a long bed frame? How's that gonna work? Or did you trade trucks?

Sweet! It sounds like a lot of work, but it'll beat neat to have a short bed diesel. Money might be the hard part. :D
