    I'd go with the Level8 MK6 for a couple of reasons. Mainly, they are one of the very few that explicitly state that they are hub centric and designed for our trucks. Next, they are a fairly light wheel in terms of weight, so you get a slight benefit of weight reduction. Finally, and this is purely subjective, I like they way they look.

    https://www.trailbuiltoffroad.com/buy-wheel-offset/1680MK6-16140G06/level-8-mk6-16x8-10

    Trailbuilt has free shipping :thumbsup:

    Edit: I just noticed the image you pasted showed that it came with a hub centric ring. So they are probably fine, but I'd still personally prefer one that doesn't need any form of adapter.

    I really like the way these look and they are only 19 pounds. But yeah the hub is my worry .

    All my rigs are purpose built. From crawling to camping. I also enjoy a nice stock truck for what that’s worth. Toyota’s are the jam!
    Someone such as yourself should appreciate multiple shafts!

    My 2nd gen has a wider track with these wheels and, combined with my suspension upgrade, handles turns at speed much better than before. The truck used to feel top-heavy, post-lift on stock tires & wheels. After mounting these wheels on 265/75r16 Cooper Discoverer ATs, the handling was vastly improved.

    What's everyone running for aftermarket leaf springs? My tent is in, and I wanna go ahead and get a new pack before installing. I was looking at Dobinson, but doesn't look like I'll get them anytime soon if I ordered today...

    I've been pleased with my Dakar pack. I'm probably going on 5 or 6 years and they are showing their age, but I got the medium pack and have the AAL to make it a heavy. I'm hoping the AAL will give me back a little height. Overall, I'd definitely purchase them again.

    I wouldn't get anything with fewer leafs than the Dakar pack, FWIW.

    I think Ironman either is or was doing 25% off.

    Thanks for the info. How much constant weight you holding with those? I was looking at them, but thought I'd get some input from people who have em first. I also saw the icon multi-rate RTX pack that comes with an extra leaf(s) too. Both not too pricey and free shipping + not tax atm from 4WP.

    I'm gonna check out ironman too, read some good stuff about them

    My use has varied from zero extra weight to carrying probably 200lbs. You could visually tell that the weight was there when you knew what it looked like without it, but it handled it just fine. I don't really have a lot to compare them to, but I'd buy them again.

    I've overloaded them on a number of occasions hauling over 3k pounds in the bed, which is not recommended.

    Here's 3 scoops (roughly 1.5 yards) of compost:

    and the leafs with that weight:

    Also, FWIW, mine are the CS047R (old design) and not the EL095R (New design).

    Did you seem to loose mpg with going wider, gain with going lighter or basically it's a wash and stayed about the same?

    My mileage didn’t nosedive until I put a Prinsu roof rack on. I used to chart my mileage and peaked at 23mpg.

    Nice man. I currently have stock wheels with 265 75 16 and a camper shell. I get around 390 miles per tank.

    I got like 400-420 when I was stock. Now I'm down to about 300. If I could go back and do it again, I wouldn't have done near as much to my truck as I have.

    To me range is one of the most important things. Not only for daily driving but even more so on adventures. I've gotten pretty far into the middle of nowhere kentucky and not see a gas station for a long time. You start to worry a little. Lol

    I wish I can center the fairlead but I'm pretty sure SOMETHING might go wrong since the winch itself is off centered by an inch correct? Can someone chime in on this?

    Same, though now I have 140k miles and need to replace plugs again. Skid plate, roof rack, sod topper, steps, recovery kit, wife & kids, my fat butt. It all adds up.
