265 75 16 duratracs. No lift yet.

Should I lift it 1.75 or 2.5 inch?

1.75 to level it or 2.5 to give it bro lean. You planning on lifting the rear too?

I've got a 2013 DCSB and I am putting 265/75/16 duratracs on stock wheels next Wednesday with Bilstein 5100's all the way around with the front's set at 1.75 with stock coils. I have done research on this for 2 weeks and that's the best looking combination I can find with that size tire. I ordered my 5100's from downsouthmotorsports.com and they should be here in 3 business days. Came out to $320 OTD. I will post up some pics after I get my lift to let you see how mine turned out. The bilsteins set at 1.75" on stock coils should level your truck perfect if you have the TSB leaves which I would think so on a 2012.

If your not lifting the rear then set the fronts at 1.75 and it will look perfect

That looks good! how do you like it? 1.75 is a pretty noticeable difference in person? I think I am going to do wheels with back spacing and still unsure whether to go 1.75 or 2.5.

Yeah 1.75" is noticeable in person. I didn't want anything crazy. I would say if you go 2.5" go with an aal in the back. My truck sets perfectly level at the 1.75" setting.

As far as ride. Sooooo much better over stock. Truck feels like it should. That's all I can say.


edit: below is the before pic so you can get a good idea.

I had a 2" spacer first and it was ok but the nose was too high. I've now switched it out and when with 5100 at 0 on front with 885 coils and a 2" aal in the rear with 5100. Now it looks stock but 2" higher. Wished I'd put the 1/4 top plates in. Maybe next year. But the ride is a lot better with the 5100.

I have the same tires. 5100's set at .85, no AAL. Sits level. Front tires scrub when locked in turn. I am going to get the AAL and jack the front up more this spring.

Are you still happy with the 1.75 inch lift or do you wish you had gone higher now?
