    Hey! Just wanted to say that your truck looks perfect! Based on your truck, I think I'm going to get 20x9 Addicts +18 and a 2" level

    I was just wondering how much they stick out past the fenders since you don't have any pics of the truck down the side... I'd be running a slightly narrower tire (275/65/20 - Stock width, 34" tall) since I'm not a fan of wheels that poke out.

    Any info would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks man! I'm running the 295/65/20 Nitto Trails (35.47x12.33) currently. I did have the 295/70/18s when I was just leveled before I went to the 4" lift. I'd say the tune was a huge improvement for me. I tuned it when I was still running my old tires and it was a night and day difference the first time I loaded the 87 performance tune. It has much better throttle response and much better shifting, plus the benefit of the speedometer and odo being correct now. It really seemed to hunt gears all the time before the tune and would constantly shift.

    I don't think the afe intake did much besides make my truck and exhaust sound better. The stock intake is really efficient from what all I've read. I mostly did it to replace the abomination the previous owner had on here and 5 Star was running a holiday special on the bundle haha. It does look good under the hood though.

    But, I definitely think the tuner was money well spent! Any more questions, just let me know!

    Hey there. Came across your truck while researching tires and wheels. Anyway I love your setup. I have a 2013 FX4 in Grey. I ordered the Addicts but I'm stuck on the tires.
    Can I ask what brand and size tires you're running? Trimming required?
    I'm getting the 2" AS level up front only. Do you have a lift in the rear?

    I want exactly your stance as I haul dirt bikes and so on. Perfectly level would likely cause it to squat.

    Hey kws.....thanks for the compliment!

    I had the XD Addicts on my '09 FX4 and I really liked those wheels too. Good choice!

    On my Platinum with the 295 Trails, I had to trim about an inch off the painted fender inside the wheel well behind the tire, and also had to trim some of the front air dam on both sides. My shop used a dremel and then cleaned up the burrs with an exacto knife so it looks really clean and can't even tell.

    I kept the stock shocks so the ride is basically the same since the leveling system really does not change any of the stock geometry (just make sure you get your front end re-aligned after you install the AS). The only noticeable difference is the mass of the larger tires as turn in feel is a little more sluggish as is initial acceleration (a lot more is needed to get all that extra mass moving) but it rides fine!

    Thanks again and good luck on yours. Post some pics when you're done!

    No major issues, during slow speed on a flat surface and fully cranked to the right there is no rubbing, but fully cranked to the left the is some slight rubbing. So when off roading over bumps you want to avoid full crank in any direction.. For regular city/highway driving there is no rubbing.. Unless parking fully crank to the left.. lol

    I have Bilsteins 5100 all around with them stock in the rear and adjusted in the front to the max 2.25". It looks close to rubbing but even with it cranked and going off curbs or speed bump no rub so good so far.
