Depends on if you are going to haul stuff a lot in the bed. I have EXPO packs and they have served me well. But on average I carry an extra 300lbs. of gear.

Have you checked out the SCS write up in the April issue of TCT?

http://tctmagazine.net/april-2014-vo...lume-7-issue-2

Their wheels are worth the wait.

You have some good plans for that truck. Look forward to seeing your progress.

I rarely haul anything. Maybe a few times a year when I decide to build something or do yard work. Other than that maybe a boat in the next few years.

Yeah I had a set on my 2010. Wish I had taken them off and kept them, but I plan on going with the SCS Stealth 6 Matte Black. Waiting on good ole VIN to let me know when they are available to order Thanks I learned a lot from here and doing it the not so right way on my old truck.

Thank you sir! Yeah I love the color. It looks way better in person than what the photos show. Iphone pics don't do it justice. I should have my lift completed by the end of June. Whenever I get my wheels is when everything will be going on. I just can't decide if I should go with 285 70 17 or 285 75 17s.

Ohh, nice, I have no idea which would gonna be an easier fit or if one is better than the other with 285s. I'm going with 265/75/16s next time I need tires though. Are you getting new wheels and tires?

Nice! I would like to get new wheels as I have stock steel ones right now. For tires, I'll probably get Goodyear Wrangler authorities or general grabber at2s

And looking at the SCS wheels now, I may go with the 16x8 4.5bs 0 offset wheels F5s, nice lightweight wheels

You cant go wrong with any of SCS wheels they all make your truck look amazing. I got more comments on those wheels than anything else on my truck. Well the bruteforce bumper turned some heads too
The weight definitely is worth it as it doesn't hurt your gas mileage quit as bad.

Yeah, just they don't have some finishes available online? I guess that changes though with inventory flow

A couple of the new colors that will be on the new SR8 wheel are also being done in limited production on the F-5 and Stealth 6 wheels. Also too they have a Tundra wheel coming out soon.
