    Anyone know these trucks?

    I'm looking to lift 3", but maintain my mudflaps and possibly use 1.25" spacers. I plan on using my existing OEM wheels, just like these pics.

    1) what size tires do these trucks have?
    2) what is largest tire (w lift) that will not require mudflap removal?
    3) will spacers force mudflap removal or can I use just to make stance a little wider?

    This is a good question. The mudflaps are not for everyone but some people like them and want to keep them. I'm curious as well.

    Stick on hood scoop from Autozone.
    I don't think 285s work with mudflaps.

    275s gota be close to rubbing, my 285s were all over the mudflap till I tore them off, if you put spacers on gona throw debris all over the side anyways

    It won't matter. Once you put wheel spacers on, the wheels will stick out past the mudflaps and throw shit down the side of your truck anyway.
