Color matched lower grill and fog bezels

Had some color matched MGM paint laying around so I decided to color match my front lower grill and fog bezels. I like it.

The last of the chrome is gone baby gone! Installed a new (used) MGM color matched bumper today. Also installed the trailer pin relocation bracket.

RCD LIFT, WHEELS AND TIRES INSTALLED!!!

Sierra Expeditions just installed my RCD lift with the Fox shocks upgrade (Part # 10-47405-F). The kit comes with Fox 2.5 adjustable remote resi shocks for the front and Fox 2.0 (no resi) shocks for the rear. The RCD kit comes with a 4" block for the rear, but I opted for an Allpro Expedition leaf pack installed and a 1" block. I also had extended length stainless steel brake lines installed. Once the lift was on, my XD Addicts and BFGs 285/70/17 were mounted.

Well, the lift shouldn't really affect MPG. I had the same wheels and tires on a 2013 4x4 and got approximately 15 MPG. I drive less than 100 miles roundtrip to work each week, so I am not too concerned with MPG.

Thanks man! The Foxes are really nice. I can't wait to take it offroad. That being said, I don't really have anything else to compare the Fox shocks too. The rear has the Expo pack, so it does ride pretty stiff. I'd rather have stiff and the ability to carry a load, then nice and soft and then have it sag when under load.

I am not sure if you can or cannot, I have 17s (original post corrected on wheel size, tires already indicated I have 17s).
