Seems you're running the same thing only with a 17" wheel?

it looks like veet skeet also did some, if not a lot of trimming.

I think it looks good tho

I'm running 285/65/18s on my 2013 DC and love the results. The lift kit is from Toytec with Bilstein 5100's all around, the front set to 2.5" with OME 883 coils and a 1.5" AAL in the rear. The ride is not stiff, as was my worry based on the "reviews" I read on this site. However, there was rubbing on my front UCAs before the lift was installed.
