If i was you i'd leave the Grill the same gte a set of clear corners. And get the Chrome wheels with 32's at the least 31's won't be big enough.

I'd go with 32's....the 31's are just kinda small in my opinion (and yes i have 31's right now, and have had everything from stock up to 33).

Have you looked at the ultra wheels on our website at all?

I thought that with stock suspension I can not fit anything over a 31', I have not look at your web site yet. I dont plan to lift it cause it would be kinda worthless for me to do so, plus Im 2wd. Id just like a beefer look. I like the black billet grills not many guys have them... but Id just like to hear you guys and gals opinions and feel free to suggest anything too


not really a fan of the ultras, no offense

You can fit up 2 33's on your truck stock but i'd be a squeeze.

32's would be perfect heres my one buddys truck. (Auto)
His is on the Right

So......

What look are you after? Bright and shiny? Or Dark and menacing? Mine was built with a theme in mind.

Bright and Shiny: Stock headlamps w/ 06+ corners, those polished alloy wheels, and 32's.

Dark and Meanacing: Blackout headlamps and corners, those black alloys, and 32's.

No matter what...do 32's, imo.

And of course.....i think you should go "dark and menacing".

haha, how about the grill then? leave the stocker in or go with a chrome or black billet? I figured I can still run the chrome rims with the black billet since the stock grill is already black

Im still torn between the two jsut not sure how it will all look and this is quite a bit of money to be throwing around too

I have 32s on the stock suspension. I vote clear corners and chrome wheels, that combo looks really good on a red truck.

haha, thats a good buy, but I dont like the bars on our grills... so looks like a full billet grill is in order jsut cant decide whether chrome or black, black is pretty rare around my town, guys love there chrome here

but it looks like it will be the chrome rims with 32's and 06 coners... still unsure about the grill

Don't drop any dough yet....until you see what it'll look like on your rig. We got tons of similar trucks on here with similar setups. The way I see it, is if it's a red EDGE, it needs to be dark. If it's a red XLT, it needs to be bright. Feel around the snapshots section, get your parts, post pics, yay...done. lol.

I believe there's a member here in the follow thread, that ordered the wrong one for his truck, and the right one for yours.....

I saw his before, and thats the kind of grill I want. I looked around and RazorsEDGE is about the closest Ive came to what I want my truck to look like minus his lift and paint job

i like the grill you have now....an off topic question, i think my 08fx4 came with 30's stock???? it looks like i could fit bigger tires easy without a lift, for you i'd say 32's and black rims would look great

If you want to go black then, black headlights, black 06 corners and black billet with the emblem still in the middle.
