Your truck looks really clean. I prefer the stock look myself. More professional and less high school, thou I do love the lifted look. I just can't do it for work. I really like those tires too. Just got my level kit done, so I'm tire shopping. My last truck I ran 295/60R20 on stock rims, but I might look at those.

I just went with the regular. I can add coil over later. Since I don't do a lot of off-road I did not see the value in getting them, mostly aesthetic would be all they do for me.

Yeah I had fuel coupler and 35x12.5 on my 2013 5.0 Screw. The v8 had trouble at highway speeds shifting back and forth. Thanks for the compliment.

Any pictures?

I don't think there is enough offset in the rim to have gone any wider. I was real worried about getting the pizza cutter look but after it's done I'm happy with it. Plus a little less rubber to push down the road. Plus plus I had wide tires on my last truck and it was always slinging mud and rocks up the sides and tore up the paint.

Stage3 love the beige truck. I was wondering how the 4" can be so close to your 6" also. If I go with a lift it will be bds with coils.

These things are too expensive to leave outside year round in my opinion. I might feel different if I wasn't in Texas where we can get softball size hail in May.
Yes sir. It fits just fine and I agree, this truck lives in the garage that's made for storing vehicles, not junk.

I had a 2013 with a 6 inch lift and 35's on 20 inch rims and it still fit in the garage with about a half an inch to spare. My garage has a 7 foot opening and a slight slope going in.

It IS a BDS. I was not interested in the Zone.

Here is my 2013 (sold) that also fit.
