Been forever and a day since i posted, but im always lurking around seeing everyone's rigs. Just wanted to post an update with my fender flares on. Kinda crazy how many compliments i get on this truck when i have it out. Just crossed 100k, and for an '09 it runs awesome. Only mod left to do is get some wheel spacers for a slightly more aggressive stance. Runs great, looks great, very happy with it (trying to talk myself out of a 2500, lol)

PS - thanks everyone for the comments!

sometimes pics dont do it justice. 35's sometimes look small in pics but in person they look just right. i struggled with that decision as well. I have the 3.55 gears in mine, so 37's may have been a struggle. I mentioned wheel spacers, hopefully that will give it the illusion of having bigger tires when they bring em out a little more. good luck with your decision!

thanks! i have the 3.92s so i dont know if that will be an issue. im more concerned about the fit, and if they will fit well with stock wheels for a month or so till i get new wheels. and some pictures look good with 35s like yours and some just look hokey, its a rough choice lol

sorry for the delay on answering this. been away for work.

ive seen anywhere from 8.5 to 12.5 mpg. prepare to take a huge hit. no way around it. Unless you live on some very flat region. I live in central PA, mountains and hills galore.

The tires hurt MPG, but the lift is a big deal too. Lots of air catching underneath.

power initially was pretty bad, but after about a month its seems the computer adjusted and it launches just fine as of now. Currently my truck is just a weekend warrior, but i get on it pretty good when i run it. Runs up mountains with zero issue
