Oh I like that. I like that a lot.
If at first you don't succeed, chances are, you are using too small of a cheater bar

Yes stock rims. They rub a little on the sway bar when at full lock.

Looking real good!!! I always thought the Truxus tires howled on the highway, but they have always been on Jeeps though. I have to buy tires here shortly, and I am dreading it because of the cost lol!!

You could always add a small wheel spacer to help with the rubbing on the sway bar

I don't think they sing a lot. Of course I do hear it more than the stock tires but not enough to bother me. Price was higher than the other option I was concidering which was the Duratrac.
I am not a fan of wheel spacers. It doesn't rub enough for me to worry about it. I am still making adjustments to my coilovers. I want to get those fine tuned before I even think about using a spacer. I am still looking into the new Fabtech 4" kit. I like the price, Fabtech has a good rep and the height it perfect for me.

I can't wait until I can buy new tires... When I had my 2009 I just had to have new tires so I bought new summer rims and tires and mounted winter tires on the OE rims.
Sold the truck before even seeing them on my truck! My wife will not let me forget that one!
I'm so envious!
I have to stop reading these kind of threads..." Hey I got new tires!"
Did I say I like what you've done!Finally a signature and Avatar! I also posted some pics in the Gallery.
