Update 7.3PSD: Leveling Kit, Wheels, Tires + More

Hey guys. I don't frequent here as much, but I still check out the V8 and long travel topics for when I have the money to get back to finishing my Ranger.

Thought I would update you guys with my truck. Installed a BDS leveling kit (new front leafs & trac-bar bracket), Zone adjustable trac bar, Bilstein 5100 shocks and steering stabilizer, Poly trac bar bushings and sway bar bushings, Firestone Ride-Rite rear air bags and as of a couple hours ago, MHT Fuel Revolvers in 18x9", 4.5" backspacing, on 325/65R18 Goodyear Duratracs. Loving these tires already, but I'm not loving the center caps on these new rims. Anyway onto the pics.

When I got it:


In-between:


As of today. As you can tell, the roads are a mess here today (above freezing):

A little rub on the fender liner, but it can be pulled back. Otherwise, I'm quite pleased.

Thoughts?

Thanks guys! I, and no one else around here have ever seen these in person, or on any vehicle locally (only a couple pics online), so I was pretty relieved to see they looked not too bad once they were on.

A couple clean pics. Only got 3 because my SD card was full, but I'll snag some better ones and snow-testing pics tomorrow!

Some new pics for you guys with my buddy's Raptor. Both trucks are awesome in the snow, but his certainly has the "speed" and suspension for snow huckin!

Great pictures again! Wish I had snow to drive in.

I love those raptors just not sure I could wheel one.
