I really like the look!
Are those tires load range E? Is there much difference in ride quality from the SLs that come on the truck?
I'm considering 17”s just because there are more options for larger tires with load range C and D ratings.

Thanks, yea they're E. Definitely heavier feeling than stock, but I like the ride just fine. The Icons give it a great tighter feeling with a much less floaty feel. I wanted (and ordered) 17" first before reading (on here) that they may not fit since I have the Max Trailer Tow package. So I canceled the 17" wheels and tires and got the 18s to be safe.
Yes, you are correct....MaxTow has larger rear brake rotors. Mine just has Trailer Tow.
Thanks

Looks good. We had to remove the front crash guards so plenty of clearance in there. Just a mild rub when turning and backing up where the tire just barely hits the bumper. Going to see about 3/4" spacers to push the bumper out. That should fix it.

Still mild rubbing after removing the crash guards? What tire size and wheel offset are you running?
Running 295/60/20's with a +1 offset. It just grazes the bumper if I'm at the right angle backing up. I have plenty of room with the crash guards out inside the fender well.

What stage icon did you go with, and how do you like them?

I plan on doing the stage 4 system paired with some 285/75r17 ridge graps.

I briefly had 295/60R20 KO2s on the OEM wheels, but decided I wanted to go 18" with more offset when upgrading my suspension. So here she is with Icon 2.5 coilovers (currently set to 2.5" height) and rear shocks and 325/65R18 (~35x12.5) Nitto Ridge Grapplers on Method 315 Matte Black wheels with an offset of 18mm. We did do a little trimming and I've been test driving it over the past two days. There is still some rubbing so I think we're going to remove the front crash bar ends (apparently Ford made the ends removable this generation?). I guess the Max Trailer Tow package has an extra leaf in the rear, so even with 2.5" of lift in the front, there's still about an inch of rake. Next up: installation of the Decked system, Softopper, and roof rack (not sure which one yet).

because i have max tow i'm considering this exact 18" method wheel. what tire do you think will fit without crash bar removal? 285/75r18? 305/70r18? taller by .2" but they are 1.6" and .8" less wide than a 325/65r18.
