Finally decided!

Well, with the lift kit on its way shortly, next decision was what rim type do I want...


And the winner is....

American Racing Baja 15x10's (polished)



Ordered this morning, should be here within a week.


Woot!




Next decision (and prob the hardest).......BFG MT's or AT's......sheesh.....who da thunk this would be this difficult to decide on? lol....

Local tire shop. Paid approx $575 cdn. installed. Not a bad deal. I like the design and the fact they will be easy to clean (bought a Mother's powerball recently) versus other models.

Brenton's kit that he was selling here on R-F. 3.5" spindle kit (Fabtech) with AAL's for the rear.

How so. They are the fabtech AAL's to compliment the spindle kit, the rear on an Edge is already higher than the front by 1-2", so if adding an AAL to that, it would offset the amount of height added in the front, no?


Brenton's truck looked fine when he had this kit on, and it looked pretty level, so I don't get it.

If you plan on doing the real thing, go with the mud terrains, personally I like the tread pattern better on the A/T, but both are awesome looking and performing.

Get mud terrains. They look 1000x better, and they still last a long time too. They are the quietest mud tire i've ever heard.
