Very nice work. Did you paint your calipers in that 3 hours too? I have a set of R1 concepts ready to put on. I want to address my calipers and replacements are stupid money and covers are just meh...and pricey.

Did those wildpeaks see any good snow storms? I have duratracs on my truck and they are awesome in the snow. I have wildpeaks on the wifes yukon but havent driven it in any snow really. curious how they compare.

I painted them with caliper paint. Didnt wanna go to flashy so I went with black. The tires handle AMAZING in the snow.

Go buy yourself caliper paint at your local advanced auto. It's what I've always done and its lasted each time

I have a 2015 Ram 1500 would you guys recommend keeping the stock calipers, with upgraded pads and rotors, and make sure everything is bled well or up grade all? Mainly a daily driver but used as a truck no Heavy towing as of right now. Thanks

If your not replacing calipers, then no need to bleed.
I put R1 Concepts slotted/drilled on in 2019. The hats have all rusted over now, so I have a set of Hart Black rotors sitting on my workbench to install.
