    Does anyone have this setup?
    I have seen a few people fitting 17 in but not with 16. I just ordered the billys and aal. Im willing to get spidertrax if needed because im also looking for a really wide stance. I searched with no luck.

    Any help is much appreciated and pictures would be awesome!!:D

    Edit: If you have your 1500's at 2.5, post pictures and sizes of you tire/wheel.

    Do you have any pictures? Im pretty much trying to get the biggest tires into the 2.5 lift. I was hoping to get 16's but if 17 is what it will take I will settle for that.

    Would spacers or 17's take away some of the cutting?

    Spacers should help a little, if you don't offroad you could make them fit.

    Then you will rub during articulation and turns, I would consider somewhere close to 32's and some cutting

    They would rub alot and you would hate it. I just got 16's american racing bajas on some Good year wranger tds 265/75/16s and 1 inch wheel spacer , and it rubs even with some trimming on fast turns.

    Ive decided on the 265/75/16's. thanks for talking me out of it. I think the 265 looks better on this size lift anyway now. I ordered the spidertrax 1.25". Ill will be sure to post pictures when all is said and done. Thanks guys
