Not 10% sure about the offset. I think the place I bought them from was 0. I definitely have enough clearance of the bolt with the 285 duratracs. I do still rub though. I need to grind down the pinch weld

I am probably going to take my swaybars off, Just on the front, fairly soon. Has a very annoying squeaking and clunking sound especially at speed bumps. I was not able to drill my front driver side swaybar all the way in. So I'm just gonna take both out fairly soon

First time taking it Offroad since the wheels and tires. Duratracs performed very well from the little I did since it was dark and I was out trailing alone. Gonna try to not scratch these wheel as long as possible haha

Nice rig!

I like the way you parked across 3 "compact" spots.

I noticed you have the headlamp assemblies with the black bezels. Did you see any change in the way they cast the light(further....shorter...blotchy) or so on? Or just as good as the originals? I want to get a set, but nervous they won't be as good of reflectors as the oem's. I'm totally happy with the output of mine, but prefer the black bezel look. Thanks

I felt the same as you about the black bezel. I haven't noticed any real difference with the light output at all. But I was never really looking out for that. But has great light output.

Awesome, thanks for the input. Always nice to hear from someone that's used a product or item. Are they from one of the many sellers on ebay?

It's pulling Alright. Got around 14 mpg compared to the usual 17 and yes I do have the hypertech. Honestly haven't been able to tell a big difference with the hypertech.
