Got my kit put on yesterday. The 35 inch tires i bought for it didn't fit because of the extra offset on my wheels. So i gotta figure out if i want to get smaller tires, different wheels, or lift it higher to keep same tires and wheels

Truck looks good, just curious, did you do any research before buying the 35's you though would fit?
That seems like a lot of money. I'm going to run stock until I wear them out then look at options using the stock rims.

Yea i just saw that 35s would fit with leveling kit really didn't think about the offset on my wheels. I will figure something out haha

That is one huge bumper setup you have. I'm wondering how that front would look with a black grill. The chrome kinda gets lost with the bumper while a black one would make the bumper & grill pop out more.

I have 0 offset and 35's weren't even close to fitting. The largest tire I could fit was 305/55/20

I'm hoping mine will look ok with stock size tires.
I do eventually want to change from the junk Goodyear tires.
I'll know sometime Sunday.

It will look just fine with stock tires. I ran stock tires for a short period of time with a level.

Lol. It will look as stock as the rear already does just exactly the same in the front.

Our stock tires on this truck are actually quite big already.

The most off road this truck will see is logging roads in Maine. I bought it for economical transportation that will tow my work trailer and occasionally the dump trailer.
Where were you driving? The only time I've ever hear of that happening, the guy was driving down a long stretch of snowmobile trail and picked up some studs in his tires.
Been there done that off road thing. Had a 97 T-100 jacked, supercharged with every option you could put on a truck at the time. Every time I took it off road it took me a full day of 8-10 hours to get it all cleaned up and shinny. Then I'd still have silt & mud running out of cracks that I couldn't get to for a month after that.
Best most dependable truck I've ever owned in my life. The Ford has already been in the shop more then the 97 Toyota was.

it was two different times of coarse both at night tho. the first one was on a dirt tourist loop to see wild horses that was a nail split the tread like 4inches so it was unfixable. scond time it was just a random two track that fallows the Train tracks not sure what it was but it took both the right side tires out but i was able to get them fixed.
