Default My 2011 XLT Build

Just got my leveling kit in 2 1/2" up front 3" block to replace the 1 1/2" stock ones for the rear.. Also put Method Mesh 18x9 wheels on wrapped in 295/70R18 Nitto Terra Grappler G2's. Posted a before and after pic.

Can you post some more pics? Up close? From the front and back? I have the same exact truck and am thinking about doing something very similar with Method wheels as well.

Ripped off the old scratched vent shades and replaced with new ones today after work. FYI that adhesive is a PITA to get off. I used 3M adhesive remover, a rag, and a eraser wheel from Oreillys on my drill.. Took like 2hr's

Looks nice! What offset/backspacing did you go with for the wheels?
