First oil change is going down at 9k at 7 months old. Should be a cake walk. And I'm also taking a oil sample for analysis. Dont expect to see any surprises but it's nice to track these things down the road.

That looks great! I’ve been debating on getting the Raptor wheels but still undecided between them and a couple other options. With the 1.5” spacers, do the wheels stick out at all? I’m wondering if I could get away with 1” to make them flush with the wheel openings.

if you want flush. go with 1". I didn't want spacers more than 1.5". but I wanted to run fender flares as well. But the wheel offset wasn't what I hoped to make that happen.

Thanks. Can you get a pic some day from the front or back showing how far yours are out with the 1.5s?

Put these wheel spacers to the test. Definitely gives me more piece of mind after what I put them through today.
