What load range are those?
All of the KM2's on 18" wheels are load range D.

FYI, I've seen people run 37x12.50's on new super duties with only 2-3" leveling kits...

Ya the tan on yours doesn't look good, I don't mind it though on mine...

I agree with you, paint the lower half blue...get rid of the tan. I like the blue, you should get STX bumpers, front and rear and paint them blue then get a black billet grill and headlights...make her black and blue!

Do you have a leveling kit? I'm assuming that you do. (I may have missed that thread)

Yeah I have the 2" Bilstein leveling kit. I'm not gonna do the black heads, I like the look of the stockers.

I like the black headlights except that everyone has them. I would never have bought them for retail but I got a set for $80 and it was hard to pass up.
Some days I look at pictures with the stockers and liked them more, other days I like the black ones.

Yeah same here. Yours look great on your truck though, the black flows really smoothly with the tires and door handles. White and black look great together, blue and black not so much IMO lol

I dont necessarily like the step-ups but I had a little incident with my buddies 150 and I ended up falling out in the middle of the road haha. His dad came and got us and I went to jump into the back seat and his dad asked if I was in and my friend answered yes and I really wasnt ALL the way in and he pulled off and I fell out LOL. We put his step-ups back on right after that.

Looks so much better. Still think 35's look a little stuffed on stock F150's though. I had a set of 35's on mine for a few months but swapped to 33's and never looked back. Power and gas loss is terrible with them.
Nice tire choice also!!

I like the tan but I feel it clashes with the chrome bumpers. Just one of those little peeves. I really don't want to spend a ton of money to fix it though.

I didn't really notice much power lose, it'll still spin them from a stop. My gryphon is reading like 13.5 average right now though, ouch!

Power loss wasn't that bad for me. Not nearly what it was going from 31s to 33s on the ranger. Mileage is down a bit but I didn't buy a truck for mileage so whatever.
I do believe I will re-gear my truck eventually, as well as lift it, so I don't mind.
33's do look nice on leveled F150s with aftermarket wheels though, too.

I don't mind the tan at all, but it would look much better if the bumpers were also tan.

Yeah I'm the same way, I didn't buy this truck to get great mileage. If I do awesome, if not oh well. I would rather it look badass with the 35s than having to go down a size to bring the mileage up. Just my opinion

Yea I didnt have my gryphon until after the 33's. I was only getting 13mpg w/ 33's
I would just ditch the chrome and get some painted bumpers. I love 2 tone trucks.. Mine came with chrome but I lucked up on craigslist and found some painted ones.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed that there will be a rolled Lariat at the JY with all the bumpers intact lol. I know thats unlikely but we can all hope right, haha

Never, it sits perfectly level to me. I hate rake, if I ever start towing something I'll get airbags but thats it.
