    Hey XC,
    After putting the 20" FX wheels the biggest notice was my truck sat higher. I measured from the ground to bottom of the door. Was 1.5" higher. My MPGs went from 19.2AVG to 17.6MPGs. Ride is a bit bumpier. But I only had 2000 miles on it before the swap. I love the way it looks with them now though. Their Just so heavy. I'm getting new tires soon. Wider but shorter. Maybe my MPG will come back some.

    Thanks. I bought this truck from a dealership where they do the lift/tires/flares, rims, etc as a package. It cost an additional 8000 on top of the truck price. Here's a link to their website details... .

    Thank you for the compliment! I worked out a deal with the shop i bought mine from. He took my original tires from me for $400 and then i paid him $1250 out the door. So about 1650 total. As far as the suspension goes he just installed the leveling kit and then did a new alignment. It rides okay, the tires are definitely stiffer but its worth it for the look.

    The only issue is i am now coming to find out that i need to re calibrate the speedo so i get accurate speed and mpg info. The dealership where i am at just quoted me $165 for that! Im trying to find another dealership nearby that is cheaper.

    As far as warranty goes, nothing changes UNLESS the dealership can tie whatever issues i have to the leveling kit or tires. So unless its a problem directly related to suspension the warranty will not be void. Hope this helps!
