No issues.... As easy to set up as the rear 10.5 and 11.5. I ride my bearings about .02 tighter than the manual for deflection, but it is all up to your installer. No shims needed on the main carrier bearings as they all hav the adjuster rings. the pinion is a little difficult sometimes.

Thanks but you may be a lil biased lol. I looked for a looooong time at rims before decided on the boosts what a chore to pick rims out then the tire and finally the size.
