Little detail shot of the weld quality and fit and finish you can expect from every VC part.

When can we expect a front shock kit coming for the 2019 4x4's?

We have a 2019 4x4 coming in tomorrow for a couple weeks so we can get this done. Along with skid plates and lift kit.

The van we ordered has been sitting at the factory complete since May and we won't have it till late September or.....

Did you have to do any trimming in the wheel wells to run that larger tire?

We trim a little of the rubber off teh front mud flap and a lower portion of the plastic inner fender liners that buzz on the tire at full steering lock. No trimming of metal with the 2' lift and 265/70/17s.

This van needed the mud flap removed and a slight metal trim up front to clear 285/70/17. 16mm wheel spacers were also used.

Finishing up our 4x4 2" lift and Fox shock package. We installed 35x12.5x17s on this Revel with Adaptive cruise control. The tires fit great after a little trimming, but we found out about a new added gps sensor that does not like the tire size change. We will be dropping the size down till the adaptive cruise control works again (bummer... it looks so correctly sized now). We are hoping a 285/70/17 will be small enough to not throw off the gps to wheel speed sensor reading. Vans with normal cruise control will still be able to run 35s.

Do you think 33x12.5 would fit with your new stage 6 and the speed sensor would work?

We just got the adaptive cruise control to work with 285/70/17 tires ~ 32.7" diameter. Can't say for sure if a true 33 will work.

Will have some pictures up of the van with the smaller sized tires soon.

You're not showing a 2019 4x4 front Fox shock add-on kit on your website. So if you have this available, you may want to update your website. I hope to be a customer of this when I receive my van, hopefully in a month or two.
