IMO the gap doesn't look bad at all from the pictures but I like to keep things looking stock and that looks factory to me. Do you have quadra lift? If so does it work in parking mode?

Any more input would be appreciated.

I have the 2013 Altitude WK2. The wheels will hopefully be going on the truck later today.

They're Rohana rc5 five spoke matte black 9 in front 10.5 in back

Theyre also wrapping the wheels for me. The entire face will be gun metal grey and the entire barrel and lips will be wrapped gloss black.

I don't mean to correct you but, you have it backwards, AWD will send power to the wheels as it see's depending on situation. 4X4 locks the front and rear axles together for a 50/50 split in power. the AWD in my parents 03 Durango send all its power to the rear wheel and when they start to slip it begins to supply power to the front so that at any one time theres traction.

That sounds awesome. I would be honored to meet up and share our love for these beasts with yall more knowledgeable car guys/girls. I'm just a 25 year old kid thats been blessed to own one of these things. I've spent the first half of my life growing up in my father's body shop and has always appreciated the automotive world. Just no real hands on or formal experience with dealing with any of the dirtywork. Besides sweeping/mopping up every morning and sanding parts getting ready for paint. And so the knowledge I've gained just from this forum is invaluable.

Yes they did my wheels. And they seemed pretty confident when assuring me that the staggered setup would be no problem. These guys have been in the business for over 25 years so I hope they're right! They did mention that some of the features of the quadratrac might not function to their full capabilities with this setup though.
The 10.5 on all four would have looked awesome too.
BTW Great looking ride! My wheels are machined underneath the gunmetal grey wrap so maybe I'll try that look next summer or when my wrap begins to peel. Question. Are you lowered? Or do you have it in park mode with quadralift?

No quadra lift here. And as far as the 285/40/22 tire and a 10.5 wide rim combo fitting underneath the wheel well in parking mode, thats a good question. Maybe someone can chime in?
I'm definitely considering getting an airbag suspension. Unless I'm convinced otherwise by someone on this forum that might have some experience in that world.

No offense taken! Thanks for your input!

No issues with the staggered setup so far. Tiny vibrations on the steering wheel at 60 mph. Nothing a balance shouldnt correct but its not bad. It seems I did lose roughly 1 mpg with the larger overall diameter.

Re: staggered 22inch wheels ordered

So I've been running this setup for a few weeks now with no issues until yesterday.
22 by 9 in front
22 by 10.5 in rear with 285/40/22 wrapped all around.
Purchased brand new OEM sensors as well.

Ever since yesterday none of my gauges on my dash work properly except for the rpm.
All the lights (abs, ebrake, service4x4, transmission light) are on as well. Speedometer does not work. And at startup I do get the "Service 4x4" message

Are the new wheels to blame? Or maybe the cheap aftermarket HID ballasts and bulbs I have is messing with the electronics?

I won't have time to make it to a dealer for a few days so any input would be appreciated THanks!

Very nice looking rims! Now go find a real professional photographer and have that baby shot properly.

Appreciate it! Check out this link for some more pro photos

Had the dealer check out the issues I was having. Turns out it was just some bad wiring. Everything is fine now!
