    You only need to raise the front about an inch or so, if you were to get bilstein 5100's the first or middle settings would level you out in the front.

    the largest tire size you can get with no rubbing is 265/75r16

    There's tons and TONS of info about these exact questions from literally hundreds of members, take a look around the site a bit and you'll see more info :thumbsup:

    it depends on how much you're willing to spend but 5100's are one of the most popular/cheapest ways of leveling the truck out

    same shit as everyone else
    Get a tape measure and find out how many inches the fender is above the deck in the rear and then in the front. Then subtract the front from the rear and you'll find something between 1-1.5 inches.

    You can fit 265-70-17 with that lift
