2+2 without vents. The vents can be moved over from the OEM fenders.

My advice would be to shop around for a place to install & paint before you buy them. I don't remember exactly what I paid including the Line-x for the liners, but it was more than the purchase from ADV.

I wonder if there's any reason to get the built in vents. I was thinking +2 +2 as well. I'm blessed to have a good body shop who is also a customer of mine and a long time friend. Last winter they repainted the roof, bed sides, fender flares, and front valance on the truck as well as installed the sound screen windshield. They do excellent work.

Made a separate thread to discuss the fenders and liners. I'm wondering if my issue right now is just that the 37x12.50 K02's just aren't quite "aggressive" enough looking and that's what's throwing it off. Also, going to those Fuel wheels would give me another 0.5" of outward poke too. I probably don't wanna run the 13.50's if they are gonna still rub even with aftermarket fenders, liners, and mid-perch.

Current choice for wheel would be the 17x9 +1 Fuel Militia in matte bronze. They offer a -12 offset, but I think that's gonna be too much outward poke on a 37x12.50.

Current choice for tire is a Cooper STT Pro 37x12.50. I'm still debating going to the 13.50 as I am planning for the ADV +2/+2 fenders and matching liners this winter, but I don't want to go 13.50 if it's going to rub a bunch even with those. I like the KO2's, but they run small and I'm looking for something a bit more aggressive. Will mount the white letters out this time too if they come in it. The STT Pros are 0.3" taller and 0.5" wider than the KO2's as well, even though they are the same "size."

I wouldn't run a positive wheel, in too much. Limits you in case later you want to add upper or lower control arms.

It's +1 though which is 1mm from 0 offset. Nobody on any of the Raptor forums has recommended going negative offset from what I've seen.

Most run either stock wheels or zero offset. SVC upper arms require zero offset. Not sure on the others. +1 could put you into the suspension components.

On your tire choice with Cooper, my mickey thompson’s MTZ are 37x12.50 and they are pretty large. Compared to the BFG KO2’s and KM3’s they are visibly bigger. Which is funny because they are supposed to measure 36.5” IIRC and they do, but I imagine the BFG’s do not measure what they claim (never tried).

Like I said, +1 means it only sits 1mm further inboard than a 0 offset wheel. Stock wheels are +35.

Yea, the Mickey Thompsons were one of the other tires I noticed are one of the "larger" 37" tires like the Cooper STT Pro. The KO2's and KM3's are a "small" 37" tire. The K02's and KM3's are supposed to be 36.5x12.50. The STT Pro's are 36.8x13.00.

To clarify - The K02 and KM3 in a 37x12.50 measure out to 36.50x12.50 wheres the STT Pros in a 37x12.50 measure out to 36.8x13.00. It's weird that different tires can end up not at the advertised size. I was also looking at the STT Pros in 37x13.50 since they are almost 60 dollars a tire cheaper, and measure at 36.8x13.3, but they end up at load range E which means they will probably ride rougher than the 37x12.50 load range D size.
