Nice choice! Please, keep us updated on how the tires perform. Also, are the brake lines a necessity or an option with the CST lifts?

The brake lines come with the kit standard so im assuming they are a necessity.

Rolled the Fuel wheels in front to see how it looked. Still have to get an alignment so I didnt want to ride on the brand new rubber.

Man, I love the Fuel Krank wheels. Not that popular yet, but they are one of my favorite wheels

@Wandell, the brake lines were a necessity the stock brake lines were no where near long enough after the front lift. Very easy to swap them out though.

Tires are good so far, dont hum until you get going on the interstate around 60+. And it isnt even loud. Turn the tunes up and you cant even hear it.
