    2018 40,000 miles.

    Thought I’d share some upgrades I’ve done over the last year or so.

    I replaced the original KO2 with a set of Nitto Ridge grapplers -35x12.5x17. Originally the ride was terrible. Tire shop had them at 50 lbs. I aired down to 39 front 36 rear and they feel great. I’m going to have to play with this as it might be a little low for E rated tire.

    Also installed builtright/ram phone mount, camera and radar detector. Everything is nice and solid.

    For lighting. Baja design 30” light bar behind grill and 6 rigid industries d2 lights for fog/driving.

    Finally, Eibach leveling spring in front. Rides great and looks good.

    For what its worth I ran 37x12.50r17 Toyo RTs on my Rubicon at 28psi and they were perfect on the lighter Jeep. Mid to upper 30s should be no issue on your truck.

    Nice looking Raptor!

    I run E-load Falkens and love them so far. After playing with the psi over time, I’ve settled on 37F/35R and they ride great.

    Nice job! Looks great. I have a very similar truck. I run 36 psi on my E rated tires. Seems to be ok but do get some uneven wear on the fronts so I might increase a couple of psi up front.

    Couple other things. Line-x bed, roll-n-lock bed cover. And this weekend I’ll figure out where to put alien gear cloak dock.

    Good to hear I had trail grapplers in an f250 6.7 so the e load rating made sense. I wasn’t so sure about going to such a stiff tire because I really like the raptor ride and didn’t want to screw that up. So far so good.

    The Ridge Grapplers are great tires. Just rotate and balance every 3k-5k miles and they'll last long. I've had different Nitto Mud/Trail/Ridge Grapplers on my trucks for the last 15 years with 0 complaints. My current Ridges have 38,000 miles on them and still have tread for another 5,000 miles on them easy. They do well off road every hunting season, and after 2 trips to Moab.
