DONE: 2009 1500 crew cab RCX w/rim and tires
 
Hey guys, finally got my truck back from the shop. Took long enough for this whole process, but it wasnt a real priority for me, finally had the time to do it. Heres the setup

DONE
-6 inch RCX with kicker bars
-20x9 XD 797, -12 offset
-35x12.5x20 Pro Comp xtreme AT
-Go Rhino Dominator III modular steps, polished steel (love these!)

Still to go
-fender flares
- MAYBE a window tint...maybe
- tuner if necessary

#'s
-Tires stick out 2" in front, about 1 1/4" in the rear
-43 from ground to center bottom of fender in front, 44.5 in rear (driveway is sloped, so realistic rake is prob 1", im fine with that)

Couple of things

I think it rides great so far, have about 25 miles in. Bumps feel like it did with the stock setup. Rides straight as an arrow, hardly any "walk" to it. The tires are definitely louder than stock, which i expected. There is definitely a good bit of vibration at certain speeds, but it seems to go away if you stay at that speed for 10-15 seconds. Note that i bought these tires lightly used (killer deal) so that may have something to do with it, im not worried about. Can feel a power loss for sure, and i even have the 3.92 gears, but we'll see how the PCM adjust.

Overall, i'm pumped...lol. This should easily turn heads. There was some method behind the madness as far as selection. 2 prominent things other the actual color is the black plastic and the chrome, so i tried to incorporate those 2 in the selections, and i think it came out great.

The day i got it

I dont post here much, but i do lurk a good bit, but hopefully this can help someone with their selections. Any questions dont hesitate to message me or ask here. Thanks to everyone who does post that helped me with everything!!
