Looking good so far! I noticed you want zero trimming. So did I. I have 16x8 rims with 265/75 KM2 and i have no rubbing and no trimming. Perfect for me.

After all the things I have already done to the truck, I wouldn't mind trimming if needed. I'm thinking of going 285. I'm just waiting on some funds and other mods to be completed, which may take a few months or so.

Yeah, and there is a noticeable difference. I initially kept it at 4 and set it to 6 or 7 while off roading. Now I set it on S (lowest) for normal street driving and 5 or 6 off road. I haven't set it to the highest setting yet.

I think I can add it to my shocks in the future. How is it to turn that knob once you've been through mud, etc.? It needs a solenoid and a switch from the cab...

Sorry to see your note about R-Fab. I was leaning that way for some future mods. Now I'll re-think.

You can definitely upgrade them. I haven't done a mud run in the truck yet, but it shouldn't be too bad as long as you don't mind getting dirty and if needed just wash the knob off a bit. An in-cab adjustable shock would be nice. I just adjust my shocks when I let the air out of my tires and reset them when I air them up, I also do a pre and post inspection of the truck then too.

I'd rather not get into it, but I wouldn't let my experience sway you from them. I didn't appreciate how they dealt with my issue, their initial "fix", and that their excuse for the problem does not seem logical from a customer and production perspective. You should definitely do your research on products the companies that make them to make proper comparisons. The main reason that I went with them is that they were in state and I wanted to spend my money here first before I went out of state.

So, what did you have to do to manage this: Wheeler's Front Super Bump Spacers (3/8" installed due to UCA's hitting fender well)? I'll have the same UCA's once I get everything installed.

There is a nice short stretch of dirt road on the way to work that I take to bypass traffic and only adds 5-15 mins to my normal no traffic travel time depending on how fast I want to go, and I usually try to go faster than I should. The main one I take is the reverse route of the Primm dirt track to Jean airport video above and another harsher route on the other side of the freeway when that main one is closed due to races. There are also quite a few trails around Vegas that you want to go relatively fast in, but I'm trying to slow down on those types of roads now. It's just from hard hits going fast on bumps. Here is a video of the bumps compressing on this post by DDD.

The red circles highlight some of the points of contact:
