It really was, all my color matched parts only ran me $485 including the $50 i gave the guy that put the bumper together. Tried to do it myself but didn't have the proper tools. Man that thing is a Pita, next time I buy a truck I'm making sure its already colormatched for the most part!

20x12s!!!

Postby dmart21 [OP] » Mar 03 2016, 3:46am

Well I finally have another update for the build and its a big one for me since I debated for a long time if I was going to try and fit a 20x12 or play it safe with a 20x10 and possibly upgrading to a 295/60r20 down the road but I went for the gold and am very happy with it. I still am using my Atturo trail blade xt 33s which I do not recommend by the way. Tread wear is fast and uneven, going with Toyo or Nitto next time. Paired them up with 20x12 -44 Gear Alloy big blocks in gloss black. Southern Offroad installed them for me and did the trimming, its just minor plastic trimming and It does rub at full lock in reverse but I am ok with that. They took my spacers out rather then trimming the studs so the track width is off again but I will get that taken care of at a later date. The look is exactly what I want, I couldn't be happier with it. Hoping to get more pictures this weekend after clean everything up and delete the last bit of chrome left.

My girlfriend took the first 2 photos, after comparing the photos I took to hers I'm pretty sure I shouldn't be allowed to use a camera lol

they are about 6 inches, for the money you can't beat this wheel if you want a big lip!

Thank you! I noticed you have the rough country floor liners, how are those working out for you?

I really like them. Very comparable to Weathertech and were a lot cheaper when I bought them. Fitment is great as is coverage and they haven't slid on me in the 4ish months I've owned them.
