Today I just had installed Bilstein 6112s and 5100s in the rear (soon to have 5160s). Also some sexy Raptor Take Off Wheels and Tires . I wanted a long travel kit, but after researching. I'm not going to be doing crazy off roading. Just Georgia Mountain Hunting Trails, Nebraska Hunting Pastures, and occasional ORV park trails to get my trailer and ATV around.

After leaving the shop I'm noticing the ride is a little stiffer than stock...Hopefully it's just needing to be broken in. So on my way home a hit a dirt road at a decent speed. Still seems rough. Tomorrow I'm taking it out to a pasture and really trying to break them in since we have all this new snow. . Then repeat when the 5160s get here.

My current other additions so far. More of creature comforts over performance or enhancement:
-UnderCover Flex Tonneau Cover
-Linex Bed
-Husky Liner Contours Front and Back
-50 Cal Bullett Antenna
- 20% tint all around and 50% on the windshield

Coming Soon
-5160s (ordered)
-Switchback Headlights (Next)
-Magnaflow Exhaust
-Supercharger
-New Front Bumper (Dechrome)
-New Front Grill (Dechrome)

I'm looking for a set of Raptor take offs as well. I wish the Raptor crowd with money to burn would realized if they left the TPMS on the wheel set they would sell instantly and for more money instead of being one of the 1000 sets available without that sit on the market indefinitely... ANYWAYS, installed the Fox 2.0 set up today and from what I've read the Raptor wheels and tires will fit my truck with no issues.

Did everyone that installed their 6112s remove the dust boot before installing? I had a shop install mine and they left it on.

That's weird, they didn't come with my Raptors. When I bought my take offs the guys who swapped them used the TPMS sensors from my stock wheels. They were already programmed for my truck. Works like it did with my stock wheels.
