    Well that's if it's a 20/8 what is the width of the wheels?


    if you have 20/8's these are about as big as you can go stock without rubbing.

    alot of metal, small engine, decent travel.
    caged, camburg long travel, 50t leafpack (soon to be installed) light rack over cab, 5pt harnesses etc
    20s with stock height will be some pretty low profile tires, if you dont like low profile tires i suggest flipping them (selling them for more) and get something more your type of wheel.

    but i would think 31s would be the biggest

    A few members on here run 285/60/18's on stock suspension, and the tire isn't tall enough (31.4") to hit the UCA, even with more than 4.5" of backspacing.

    Therefore, you should be able to fit 285/50/20's if you so please.

    Or you could run the aforementioned 265/55/20's if you prefer a taller, but skinnier tire.

    Here's a comparison between the two.

    These are the wheels on the truck. They have a 295/45/20 on it right now and do not rub. It has about 1/4 to 1/2 inch clearance.

    man that's wide you might be stuck with that size tire unless you lift the truck. With a 3" lift you could do 295/55/20's that's about a 33/11.5

    So from the tire size calculator it looks like 275/50 is going to be the biggest I can go with. If I go with the 285/50 and it does rub whats the cheapest way to lift it enough to run the 285s ? Thanks for all the help.

    I dont want to put a 3" lift on the truck. Isnt there some way to raise it 1" ?
    what about some 5100 shocks?
    If a 3" lift is the only way im going with the 275s.
    The tires that are on it are slick as a peeled onion, Ive got to get some this week.

    Yeah you can do 5100's at .85 or 1.75 to lift it just a little.


    Also in that picture 295's are on the wheels right?

    Are the 5100s only for the front? I looked on ebay and thats all I see for my year is the front shocks.

    Ive been looking and I really want the add a leaf b/c when I pull a trailer it really lowers the rear end, but the add a leaf is 1 1/2" or 2" lift. I think thats going to be a little much? what do y'all think? I was kinda thinking about 1" on the rear. I dont ever use this truck off road and it is street driven all the time and average 100 miles a day, so I dont want any more lift than I need. Thanks for the help

    Do you have the rear leaf tsb? It does both of things you want (less squat when towing, and raises rear 1")

    How do I tell if I have a rear tsb? I doubt I have it, its a base model 4x4 truck. It has a total of 3 leafs if that helps.
