    I'm getting a 2012 in a few months and going to be doing similar mods so I'm wondering, how many inches approx. if your lift and how do you find the clearance in the front with that size tire?

    I will get the stock measurements from my buddy in the morning but I right now the front is at 38" and the rear is at 39.5". I am running a 285/70r17. I had to add a 1" spacer on all four wheels to fit the tires right due to the backspacing of the rims. When it comes to wheel I would get a wheel that not only fits the truck but also fits the lift. Take the time to make sure you have the right combo.

    They are old BBS wheels off of my old lifted sierra. They were originally silver so I painted them black and crossed my fingers. They turned out better then I thought they would! Thanks

    Great thanks I appreciate the info. I was planning on going with a 16" wheel for my offroad tires and keep the 17" stock wheels for my winter tires so that works out well.

    Truck looks great btw. Can't wait till mine comes in.

    I painted it black and then baked the painted pieces in the oven so they would cure! Let me know if you have anymore questions. More then willing to help!
