Haha! Nice.

It's mostly a mall crawler, but will see off road duty, nothin extreme though. I only drive it a week a month, if that. Haven't seen it since nov. 29th, as I work out of town. So with the fabtech, it will work at 7.5"?

Sorry, you mentioned the fabtech lift is adjustable but they don't recommend you adjust it? Is it unsafe or what's the story?

No I am only home 1 week a month. I bought the truck the day after my birthday on June 8th, pretty sure I'm right around 8000kms, might not even have 8.

Just realized you are running the same wheels I got. I went with the 22" deep dish fuel hostage.

Just went back and re-read your big post about the lift options....correct me if I'm wrong, but if I did the RCX 6" with the 2.8" bils, and a 1" spacer in the rear, I should have level (ish) 8.8" lift?

Sry man been busy. The say not to adjust it bc of cv angles and ball joints. Basically the same reason why thy say not to stack bilsteins or leveling kits with a suspension lift. You'd be fine, youd just have accelrated wear. Obviously not at the rate you drive it tho lol. Are you quad cab or crewcab? Yeah ur exactly right, a 1" rear spacer should have you dead nuts level with a 6" RCX and maxed Bilstiens.

Hahahaha yea you and those 22s, fyl for sure! Ive been pricing tires and just for 20s its rediculous!! If your gonna do 22s...go 40s

You could just go with the aftermarket cv axles for lifted trucks though couldn't you? I can't remember what they are called....

For bigger wheels you should look into the Kumho KL971 Mudders, they hold up very well and a buddy of mine had them on his 08 F250 38x1350r24's and they held up very well and performed great in the mud (even on a heavy truck). Also rode and drove very well, didn't "float" on the pavement like a lot of big mudders do.

I checked those out, but they seem to be special order where ever I look. Cheaper then the Nittos for sure though.

The cvs are Kore CVs. Their a solid 800 bucks for the pair. Im always looking at the Kumhos mudders, in a 38x15.50x20. I'm just really trying to stay away from the "me too" tires
