Default Just ordered.... 285/60/r20 Nitto...

Just ordered a set of 285/60/r20 Nitto Ridge Grapplers from my Ford dealer. They're going to install a Rough Country 2 inch leveling kit, the tires, and alignment for $1410.00. I felt that was a pretty good deal. Opinions on price and setup, please.

Those are nice tires and the size should be pretty good with a 2" level. If this is going on a stock rim i would look into some spacers to push the wheels out a bit. Getting the tires flush to the fender makes a world of difference visually

Is that 1400 dollars including the tires and level kit or is it just installation and alignment?

I'm a little concerned with using spacers. I will be out on the farm a lot in this truck and I would be concerned about stress it will put on the front suspension. This is why I went with the size tire I did instead of a 35 like some others have done. If I drop a tire off in to a groundhog hole I don't want a larger tire to get hung up. That's my thinking anyway. Could be wrong.

Much better; when I first read that, my eyes bugged out of my head a little bit. I don't know if that is reasonable, but it is certainly not insane - which is what I thought when I first read it. Good luck!

What stress are you talking about ? it's just a 2" spacer.

I'm not concerned about the 2 inch strut spacer. Someone mentioned getting 1.5 inch spacers to push the wheels out wider. That's what I'd be concerned with.
