Default 6 inch BDS finally on! (PICS)

I finally got my 6 inch BDS put on. I had a leveling kit before but just wanted to go higher. I thought I was going to get a 2013 sport but realized I like my truck to much to part with it, plus I use mine for minor offroading and hate beating up a new truck. That and I wanted 4.56's and it seems that is more complicated for the new diff's.
So here is what I did:
6 inch BDS
Fox 2.0 rear
Yukon 4.56's front and rear
Detroit Trutrac rear
18 inch XD Badlands
35x12.5 Toyo MT

I went with 18's because everyone puts on 20's and I wanted something a touch different. Plus I like the little bit of extra sidewall.
The truck rides great! I'm very happy with it. I was worried 4.56 might be too much for 35's but not at all. I'm running about 2200 rpm at 70ish and honestly anything less I think I wouldn't be happy with.
I was also worried about 35's looking too small with 6 inches but I think it is perfect, for my taste at least.
Here's a link:

Looks great. What offset are your wheels I like the way they don't stick out too much. I am trying decide when I lift my new truck if I want to do flares or not.

-12 offset. 4.53 backspacing.
I am debating flares, but may be able to get away without them. I like the look without them. Another reason I decided not to get a new truck, lol.
