Project #1

I added a solid fold 2.0 bed cover from extang. I got it off amazon. I ordered the one that came with brackets for bed cargo rails because it was cheaper. But it works on my truck even without the rails.

I love the look. It has leaked and needs re alignment from time to time. I’m very happy with the security it provides

I had a bunch of trouble with errors from a wheel speed sensor. Dealer replaced an axle after the second attempt. The tone ring was loose

I got Mopar gear wheels. They look even better in person. A lot of detail in the finish of the wheel. The rim edge is machined and the mate carbon color has a clear coat, so in the sun it really shines. But looks darker at night

really wanted to limit how much the tires poke out. So I wanted positive offset. Theses Mopar wheels are +12

I decided to get the mopar lift. I went back and forth between it and the JKS lift. But ultimately the mopar lift is cheaper when the JKS is paired with fox shox. Also the mopar lift comes with the 2.5” diameter shox and I think they are better then the 2.0” shox that are available with the JKS kit.

I’ll post more photos once the lift is installed

Looking good so far! I’ve been debating about the Mopar lift or the JKS as well. I also ordered the Mopar but I’m having second thoughts now while waiting for it to arrive.

I wouldn’t worry about it. I’m totally happy with everything. It’s nice stuff.

I Put on a fox through shaft steering damper.

I did this because, After I put the bigger tires on, the steering felt too light, and it took a little too much concentration to drive straight On the highway. Bumpsteer was was pretty obvious and I could feel it ring. I worried that my lady wouldn’t want to drive it.

But the fox damper firmed it up. And reduced bump steer. Drives like it should again. Very happy

How do you like the Toyo? I’m leaning toward the KM3’s but I keep going back and forth between the Toyo and BFG.
