Default 295/70/18 Nitto Trail Grapplers 2" Level 2012 Fx4

Hey all,
Just got these put on today with a 2" ProComp level. No rubbing at full crank in forward or reverse. Love the look, would highly recommend the tires so far. Way better than any other M/Ts I've ridden in. Still not the stock feel though. Can't tell on gas mileage yet we will see.

I know I was looking for a lot of pictures before I made my decision so I just wanted t help out anyone else who was thinking about this. Let me me know what you think too.

Thanks all.

Looks good. I'm planning to get 295/70/18 Terra Grapplers for my truck eventually.

Nice truck man! After seeing your pics, I'm definitely getting my windows tinted soon... I just put toyo m/ts on mine and yes, completely different ride over stock. but they sure do stick on gravel roads, and will get me into places I shouldn't be lol I went with a 285/75/17 with a 2 inch level and no rubbing so far that I notice.

Would love to level my truck, however my local shop guy is discouraging me from doing so. He says just too much stress on suspension components and an overall bad ride. Looks great though, hope you have success with it.

I knew what I was getting into and it's only temporary. I could see the obvious while putting the spacer in, over time ball joints will fail from the added stress and the control arm smacking the coil at full droop isn't good either ... But that's why I'm slowly saving up for camburgs control arms and fox 2.5s, I figure that'll fix those issues.

As far as the ride goes, it rides great. For the added stress I'm sure there is some, but the 2" is much smaller than some other leveling kits so I hope it isn't as bad

That's awesome! Your truck is looking clean how did you do that with your ford logo?

Do are your tires wider and a little shorter? Or wider and taller?
