    Thanks all for the feedback so here’s what I’ve decided

    Phase 1

    Innov8 17” G500 sim beadlock w SLD rings 5” back spacing

    Eibach springs

    Phase 2 (after we get moved)

    Icon leafs option 1

    SVC bumpstops

    ADD pro bolt on F&R

    Rigid radiance 20” curved

    Cobb intercooler

    Going to set it up like this with my stock 35s evaluate and decide if I want to go to 37 KO2s

    You will want to go to 37s and you may want to consider doing the Eibachs and Rear Leafs at the same time.

    Haha I am sure you are correct and I probably will anyway but I am trying to make sure I don’t make mistakes as I have in the past with modifying a vehicle for looks and performance but finding out it was sometimes a PITA to drive. (ie 21” wheels on my M5 looked great but it hurt the ride so much my wife refused to go anywhere in it and I killed several tires) Granted never modified a truck before but want to make sure I don’t start down a path I will regret but knowing myself I will probably end up with fenders and mid travel in the future ;)

    The plan was to do the Eibach and Icons at the same time but figure I will go ahead with the Eibachs and let them settle for a bit to see how it sits to help me decide on which setting for the Icons

    Eibachs and Innov8’s on the way!!

    And yes I decided to have the Innov8 wrapped in 37 KO2s (fingers crossed)

    Springs will be here this week for sure waiting on confirmation on the wheels but may be first of next week.

    I’ll run it like this for a month or so and let the Eibachs settle then order the leafs (flip flopping between Icon and deaver after rereading all the threads about the two) and bumpers and IC after we get moved.

    Planning on doing the install on bumpers, leafs and IC myself and want to wait til after the move as have too much going on now to dedicate a weekend. I’ll have the local shop do the Eibachs and wheels this weekend if they get here in time


    Edit: hmmm I just realized that ADV fenders are less expensive that I thought

    Looks great. What offset did you order for your Innov8s? That will also affect how much rubbing you'll notice if you choose to run 37's. It looks like @Krillin increased his track width 3" per side. Looks mean, but will rub a lot more than a positive offset wheel would.

    Thank you very much! I went with the 5” backspacing which is +6 offset
