there are people selling em. gotta ask around I guess. jp1 actually contacted me about it I think. I was going to go aftermarket and 35", but then I didn't know if i'd have to do a lift, or rubi fenders, so then I was just like screw it, i'll just snag these LE wheels for now.
I believe you made great decision going this route. This way you can see if you even like the truck enough to invest in a lift and the 35s. Not to mention I think the black LE wheels will look great on your white Sport S. I will start asking around about anyone wanting to sell their LE wheels and tires. Thank you @steffen707

Thanks bud! I think i made the right call too. the black LE wheels look nice, pretty big tire size, and if I end up selling em, I won't loose that much, if any money on it.

I keep going back and forth but I think I am going to get the Armory wheels with BFG KM3 tires. I believe I have made up my mind now LOL Just need to find a place where I can get both as a package deal for a decent price...

Put 745 miles on it yesterday, Madison, WI to Tupelo, MS.
Now at 1294 miles, not too bad for day 4.
It's a thirsty bugger with these 37"tank tires...

My ONLY 2 whiney-bitches are due to my own doing, and I know it:
1. Mileage SUCKS! so far 14.4 mpg.
2. ALOT of wondering on the interstate. I'm at exactly 32 psi cold, heats up to 35 psi hot. I just took them down to 30 psi cold to see if that helps.

37s have costs... :CWL:

@furrymurray - I'll be selling my LE wheels but only after my move to OH so it will be a couple of months in Aug hopefully. I don't want to deal with another set of wheels while I'm in the middle of a move...

All this only if I have my LE delivered tho :CWL:

so I dropped the air to 30 cold today.
I ran about 50 miles locally in Mississippi, seems to be right where I want it. smoothed out good, really settled the wandering.
Debugged the front, topped off the fuel tank, and ready for a just over 900 mile final day of the road trip home to Fort Lauderdale tomorrow.

On the 7th Day:
5% Tint front/ 20% rear on the OEM to match. :bandit:
Washed the Everglades bugs off. :puke:
Ordered a new center cap to replace the one that apparently didn't get tightened and I left somewhere between Atlanta and Orlando. :headbang:
Wrote a $3600.00 check to the State of Florida to Register it. :crying:

k, that's enough, time for a nap. :LOL:

@SleepyJeep Lets try and work something out. My JT will not be here for another month anyways so I can hold out. I will PM you and we can work out details if you are good with that. Thank you for letting me know!
