Looks great! Did you also do a 1" level kit? Kinda looks like you did, but perspective is tough. If not, I wonder if the level kit would help, rather than using wheel spacers (I hate the idea and maintenance of these)
I do have a 1" level. I'm not super excited about the maintenance on spacers and I may decide after a couple of weeks living with the rub to leave them off unless I'm going off road and need the clearance. The rub isn't horrible and worst case scenario I don't go full lock and have the turning radius of an average pickup.

That's the only rub

Thanks for the info. I also plan to selfsquatch my BL with 7MT, but will be getting aftermarket wheels and likely more aggressive tires if I can choose some that aren't too damn heavy. I'll use the stock setup for winter. I'll remember about the rub, and be sure to get the right offset on the wheels. I'm also very pleased to hear you like the 2.3/7MT with 35s. It definitely feels (to me) that there's plenty of power left to give over the stock 33s.

For sure, it almost seems happier than with the 33s.

A 30 offset like the sas would be perfect for you. I just really like these wheels for some reason

Oh no doubt, those wheels are great. I wonder if you can get away with just a thin spacer and maybe longer lugs, so you don't have to worry about the separate torque maintenance of the thicker spacers?

The torque maintenance really isn't as bad as people make it out to be. Just like when you do a level you want check everything every 500 miles or so for a while but once it's pretty well established that they're good to go you can just check on them every rotation. I do rotate tires a lot though, living on a gravel road it's always good to do some extra rotations.

Picked up my Fuel Assault rims and 35” BF Goodrich KO2 tires today, can’t wait to see them on my Bronco on Saturday when they install the 2 inch lift.

Anyone have 35s on theirs and had to use a tail light extension or did the spare fit just fine?

95.6% spreadsheet delivered. @Kim_Rn what was your blend date? As it stands 100% delivered for 11/15, 11/17 and 11/18 going by the spreadsheet.
I had an 11/15 blend date built 12/13 and I still have not received my bronco - I tracked it by rail to Crewe Virginia and its in the rail yard and now my tracker says delivery by 2/1. Huh?

I put BFG KO2 35x12.5 on my OBX and the spare just clears the third brake light. It's close, but okay.

Tracker has you down as a 11/19 blend?

It's snug with 315's but works. I did have to trim the bump stops on the tailgate though
