The bagger nation fat front end is the one I keep looking at as well. Complete set up in one delivery. Big cost though. Can’t get past the money leaving my wallet for a look. Comfort yes but a look is a hard sell. Now if something on the front end broke they would be my first phone call.

I have the Native Customs fat tire kit on my bike and I've installed them on a number of bikes at work. Beyond just the looks, I think the bike does handle a lot better than stock. Straight line, the bike feels more stable and doesn't want to track easily in road snakes. Cornering feels more stable because of the front and rear tire being equal width. Steering actually feels lighter/quicker than stock. I lowered mine when I did my install but that was just for looks. You can leave your bike at stock height with no ill effects. If you do a search on here, there are a number of threads about this with pics (lowered and stock height) and other questions/answers.
