There's zero differences between the 2017-18 MY...why split this thread up and confuse guys looking for mods?

Looks great, that's the look I want with the tires not sticking out very much. I thought I needed 0 offset to achieve this look though, but yours were +20? I guess I need to read more and understand offset a little better. Lol

postive (+) offset moves the tire inward. negative (-) offset moves the tire outward.

Note that stock wheels are +40, but the rims above are wider than stock wheels.

The response above is correct. They make the wheels in a +1 but that would have pushed them out a little further (Best guess is about 1/2-1” or so). I went with the +20 and the wider tire to get the look I wanted.

With all these rim mods I see, anyone have a set of OEM stock 18" rims they're willing to sell? I want to get a set of winter tires mounted... Oh, and back to topic, my Snug top canopy arrived, as did my 2 1/2" door body side molding (painted to match), mud flaps, weather tech window vents, hood deflector, and floor mats, tailgate lock, etc. Now if I only had my truck . Supposed delivery date is now 17 March...

I will be but my truck will not be here intell late April so plenty of time before winter. I believe they will be the black ones. I will drive on them long enough to make sure no issues with truck.

Seems like the 20x9 +20 offset with 35x12.5s in a nice solution if no rubbing at all. Thanks for sharing

Replaced the garbage halogen heads and fogs with LED bulbs - Beamtech in the headlights and Alla in the fogs. Amazing difference... (see the budget LED thread for more info on those...)

I started hooking up my pass thru wires to the upfitter relays. I'm using upfitter 1 for an under the dash power point for my GPS. Upfitter 2 will be for my make shift CHMSL camera, and upfitter 3 will be for in cab floor lighting. It boggles my mind how much money we pay for these trucks and Ford can't give us any more that a couple inches of pass thru wires to work with in the cab. Unfortunately, I couldn't find a chassis ground in the cab so I had to sacrifice one of the pass thru wires for ground connected to chassis ground in the engine compartment.
I was going to order a 3rd brake light camera kit from camera source (https://camera-source.com/2017-f250-...a-display.html) for $179. I was cleaning out my box of hardware and came across a backup camera I purchased years ago and decided to re-purpose it along with an old magnetic cell phone holder.

My make shift CHMSL camera:


Old magnetic cell phone holder was perfect for mounting the camera.


I cut off the license plate brackets and bent the remaining bracket to use with the magnet. I'll running the wires in the headliner and in the kick panel after testing is complete.


Connected to my Edge Insight CTS2.

If it works out nicely, I may go on Amazon and purchase a new backup cam with the butterfly ears on it for a smaller footprint and no lines for $20.
