    New to Me 2012 Raptor. Had all 4 shocks rebuilt by SDHQ and added an Icon bum stop Kit. Wanted a wheel I could color match so picked up a set of factory beadlocks and had the beauty rings powder coated to match and Wrapped them with 37" Nitto Ridge Grapplers. This thing drives so much better now. Amazing what a few new parts can do!

    Time to replace your spares with OEM beads to match your running set.

    Rear differential cover was leaking a bit, so I replaced it with a Mag-Hytec and changed the fluid.

    Not normally a fan of the "monster" theme and I hope you don't have a flat bill to match, but this is a good looking truck. Like others said, the spares would benefit from a matching scheme.

    Enjoy in good health. :cheers:

    Relocated the trailer wiring connection into the bumper.
    Bent up enough had to beat it back some to get it to come loose. Need to cut it off eventually, but hey much better setup. Should've took the pic right after I was done, but hey went off roading afterward, dust is sticking to where I taped to repaint and for template.
    1-3/4" hole saw was almost perfect, just had to hand file a few spots to widen out a touch, then sawzall the rest. Filed to smooth out rough edges, painted cutout and exposed metal and snapped into place next morning. Much better now!


    Also replaced most of the rubber being used for air dams. Both sides near front wheels were torn up and cracked. Had some heavier stuff that should last a lot longer and luckily had enough of the original stuff on the truck to use as a template.
