XLT ER
I've been lurking and reading here after picking up my 2023 XLT ER 2 weeks ago. Just got my truck leveled and added new shoes, wanted to share before and after pics.

- Leveled the front 2.6" using Eibach Sport Shocks in the front, keeping the stock springs.
- Fuel Rebel 20x9 wheels, gunmetal grey
- 295/60R20 Nitto Recon Grapplers

The Eibach shocks are great, they took out the floaty feeling in the front. The ride in general is rougher, but I don't think it is the shocks, I think it is more the tires. But overall I am quite happy with the level.

Nice Rig!
35” tires? Any rubbing? What’s the offset?

Thanks! They are 34" and no rubbing. Offset on these wheels is +20. I see some are using +1 which has a little more poke, but I am pretty happy with where these sit in relation to the fenders. I've only been driving with these for a few days so I am not sure what my range hit is yet, but I am anticipating probably 15-20% due to the increased weight and rolling resistance...

I have the eibach shocks as well, all around. Stock springs. SUCH a better ride! Did the front 2", thinking us just going up all the way to the 2.6" mark.

Looks great! I am also considering the shock upgrade to reduce/eliminate that "floaty" feeling.

I think your estimate of range loss will prove to be pretty accurate based on my experience with 285/60R20 Mickey Thompson A/Ts on 20x9 Fuel Vector wheels with +20 offset. People said I was crazy to do mods that so significantly affected my range. But I don't regret. As long as you're not overly concerned about energy costs, the only time it matters is when you're on a long trip. And even then, it's only in rare cases that the range loss causes a significant change to what you would do otherwise. In other words, it usually only means you have to spend a little longer at a DCFC that you were going to stop at anyway.
