    kitchenboy: Hey, just saw your message. I troll the forums every now and then, but I made the choice to stay away. I still got my truck and other than new tires, its' basically remained the same. This spring I'm doing a refresh so adding tow mirrors, painting the flares, and adding the new Procomp uniball upper control arms. Over the last year I traded the Tahoe for an Explorer Limited and then bought a new Ford Fusion as my daily driver. The F150 is used mostly on weekends and for towing the boat. It's still a great ride and intend to keep it a good long time.

    Do you have any pics with the flares on. Did you paint them to match?

    Heres my rims and tires now and how far they are out.

    Yeah they said id be sticking out like 4" to edge of tire, but im probably close to that now. I really like the wheels though so I may go for it. Theses are the wheels. I have Toyos now, but this package comes with Nittos. Not sure if Ill just get the wheels and have them mounted around me.

    Oh forgot to add that this pic shows the OEM flares. I replaced them with 5" flares that I got from eBay and they're great. Here's a link: http://www.ebay.com/itm/04-08-Ford-F150-Side-Cover-Smooth-Primer-Unpainted-Matte-Black-Fender-Flares-Kit-/140971160085?pt=Motors_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories&hash=item20d2893215&vxp=mtr

    My rims also have 4.5" of BS and since they're both 10" wide rims, you should be fine. The reason I added the 1" Daystar was because I had a bit of rubbing but the additional lift fixed that. If needed, you can always replace the Daystar with a 1.5" Autospring. Here's the only side pic I have...the tires stick out a close to 2":

    Hey, no leaking for me...yet. Sounds like the seal needs replacing.

    Hey, just got your message...I was on vacation and returned home Sunday morning. I didn't have to do one thing to my spacers other than follow the instructions. I installed the stud extenders with a wrench and the slipped the spacer over the top and bolted it all back up. There was no trimming of the factory studs.

    You can get the boots in black, I usually ran my 9000's on 4-5.

    As far as the rims The chrome pro comps are 18x9.5 with -12OS and 4.5BS they stick out about 2-2.5" with the lift. So about half of my tire is passed the fenders. I had to trim the front valance just a hair due to going past a 9" rim. If you went with a 0 offset or 5.71 you should have no rubbing issues.
