    Just got my Method Mesh (18x9) +18 and Nitto Ridge Grapplers (295/70/18) installed. I had Trail Grapplers in the same size on my 2015 and loved those but these are pretty sweet so far and they ride as smooth as stock if not better!

    Thank you everyone. I removed the flaps before I even got them installed.

    As for rubbing, yes there was rubbing only on the front bumper plastic cover. I tried pushing it forward but still had rubbing issues. Took a dreamer and cut the area open that the tire was rubbing and now it's not rubbing at all. I did not like the idea of removing the entire plastic cover as mud and dirt will completely accumulate behind the fog light area.

    Wow! That set up looks really good. My Cement PRO should be here in a few weeks. I told myself no mods but im really diggin the wheel. I was thinking the Method grid Titanium would match up well with the cement. Hmm tempting

    I thought about that color/wheel. I think it would actually look pretty awesome. Post up some pictures if you do go that route!

    Definitely will do. Trying to not think about the truck to much. I still have to wait a few weeks. Hopefully not to much longer.
    Can you post some photos of the spots where you had to trim. Thanks

    That really looks spectacular. Great stance, and "meat" in the wheelwell without being too much.

    Sweet. I really like those wheels. Ridge Grappler looks very similar to Trail Grappler. I assume that the noise level is pretty low.

    I had the same concern about the fog light area. I actually trimmed the bottom of the liner that is parallel with the ground and was able to move the entire bottom of the liner forward about 1.5". It's out of the way now, looks OEM, and still protects the fog light area. Great looking truck btw.

    YES! This is the exact set up I am going to go with! Great to see what it looks like and hear first hand on the rubbing issue. Truck looks great! Great choice man!

    Looks awesome, maybe the best looking PRO I've seen.
    What did you do to the suspension?

    By the way, the rear sits 1.5" taller than in the images as I took those images while the 4 stock wheels and tires were in the bed..
