The red is definitely an eye catcher.. and a speeding ticket on the first drive home?! LOL! Perhaps that's what my dad meant when he called his Thunderbird's color 'Arrest Me Red'!

Just out of curiosity, I noticed you have a black front license plate bracket.. could you tell me if it has a part number on it? My truck should've come with a bracket, but I suppose they believe two bolts are sufficient. My front plate rubs against the chrome bumper.. not good. Really hoping your bracket will fit my bumper.

Not sure what the PN would be for the bracket but couldn't too hard to find through Mopar.

Probably a stupid question, but what's up with your head lights? Looks like they were dark in the original pictures. Are they an upgrade? Truck looks great by the way.

Also did the Bilstein 5100s all around, 2.1" lift front and a TGC .75" spacer in the rear. Looks about level but there is a 1" difference right now it seems...perfect rake! I have 7" clearance over the front stock tires and 8" in the rear. New tires will soak up .75" of that next week so will be about stock looking rear fender space and about 1.2" added front clearance so SHOULD look right as if the 35s belong on there!

Had the grille swapped to a black one and tow hooks installed. Will do tires next week when they come in - 35x12.50 Toyo Open Country AT. Have custom made hub and wheel centric spacers that are about 3/8" thick (.375 looks like as evidently you can't have hub AND wheel centric at only .25") - I am not that comfy with daily driver having nearly half an inch spacers on it though...but could only be hub centric if I went with 1/4" which maybe I will get a set and try...I had my last set only hub centric and they were ok for years.
A couple photos:

How did you go about installing the tow hooks? Did you cut out the holes directly on the truck or did you remove the insert, and then cut the holes?

That plastic tray can be removed and trimmed/cut for the tow hooks.
There are a few DIY threads on here somewhere explaining how its done.
But it's pretty straight forward.

Did you NEED to use the wheel spacers or did you WANT to use the wheel spacers? I am looking at the same tires for my 13 Sport.

Thanks.

If you are using the stock sport wheels and same size tire (12.5" wide) you will need 1/4" spacers. I had some made that were wheel and hub centric and in order to do that they had to be a bit over a 1/4" so mine are 3/8" which is the max I would run. I am considering new wheels but CAI and ported tb and tuner will be first so maybe wheels next year. Maybe...
I prefer not to use wheel spacers but its the only way not to rub the A arm pretty bad. Unless you never plan on turning lol.
