Loving them so far. They're ridiculously heavy though (almost 70lbs a piece), definitely a notable difference. Makes me glad to have the Hemi. I will say, the Superchips has helped it out a lot, but I imagine most of its from the shift point recalibration. I do get a lot of complements so far.

As far as rubbing I did do the pinch weld in the front, and I've not gotten to taking care of the plastic in the fender well just yet, so the tires chewed through that a bit. Its on the to do list as soon as I have some time.

Be sure to take care of the rear fender too, otherwise you will chew up your new meats the first time you flex it. Depending on your backspacing you might need to extend your rear bump stops as well. Nice shoes BTW

actually, as long as it goes straight up and down, it looks like it'll be fine. I'm not a major wheeler, so its not so much on my "worry about right now" list, but who knows. Definitely keeping it in mind though! Also, just a curiousity, shouldnt the added stiffness and length of the F150 Load Levelers effectively limit the uptravel to an extent? Has anyone tested that?

My WK with plasti-dipped wheels and rustoleum rattle can bed liner on the roof. Just picked up a 4xguard front skid plate off CL for a sweet price too. Will get more pics up once its on. Cheers!

How many cans of plastidip did you use for your rims?

Bought 2 cans, did the rims and badges and still have a bit left for touch ups.

Thanks man. I really need to get on the ball with doing that to mine. Rims are the only thing not black (besides the headlights)
