    The factory tire size is what a large number of the forum members are running on their trucks after leveling them out at 1.5-1.75" in the front.

    A lot of members are also at 3" of lift in the front, and 2" in the rear, and running 265/75/R16 or R17s. Its about what can articulate fully and still fit in your wheel wells.

    Your truck would look real nice with BHLM :D no pressure ;) PM if you have questions on the process.

    Really clean/tidy, nicely tied together. Guess I'm partial to white trucks too.

    What did you pay to get your 5100's and block done? Or did you do them yourself... I was old like 500 I am thinking that may be high

    thanks, i have been thinking about doing it, we'll see.

    i paid about $620 for the 4 5100's and the 1" blocks, bought online.
    5100's $470
    blocks $150
    then the install, can't really remember exactly what it was since i bought tires at the same time and did some other things.

    Love the look.

    I just got a 2013 DCLB 4 X 4 sport and am looking to do something similar.

    i.e. upgrade tires, conservative lift, black wheels and a little black out, with little drop off in ride characteristics.

    A couple of questions:

    It looks like you bought the Duratecs and had them mounted on your stock rims and then replaced the rims with a matching size and much cooler look, yes?

    Did the 5100s and spacer give you any additional weight capacity (passengers and bed)? I do some long term beach camping and by the time I get 3 occupants (600lbs), ice (300lbs), kayak and fishing gear (100lbs), tent, shade, grill, etc. (200lbs), other (200lbs) I am over the recommended 1050lbs. Not a big deal on the pavement but the beach I go to can get very rough and we can travel up to 60 miles on it to get to our destination.

    hey, thanks!
    yes i had the duratracs mounted on my stock 17" sport wheels, fit in perfect and no rubbing anywhere.
    as for the weight thing, i really have no idea, i never had any weight issues before the upgrade but also have never loaded it up other then having 5 people in the cab, and had no issues there.

    Love the build. I'm doing a 2'' spacer lift up front was wondering since you have your billies at 1.75'' was the lean noticable before you added the 1'' block, not sure if I want to do a block or not yet. Thanks, Zach

    thanks zack!
    i thought it was noticeable, measured level but looked just a tiny bit nose high to me. i would do your front lift first and see what you think, you might not need anything in back. another reason why i put the blocks in the back is because it felt like i was pointing up in the air when i was driving with just the 5100's

    Looks awesome man! I have the same truck in black...but stock right now. I'm glad I found this thread- I have the same ideas in mind, but it's great to see pics. Nice work! What are those wheel specs?

    thanks! wheel specs are 17x8.5 / 0 Offset / 106mm bore
    i do have a little bit of rubbing on the front mud flabs just in front of the cab mount. it's not to bad, will do a little trimming when the weather gets better. hopefully that's all it will need.

    everything is great, the only thing i would do different is probably an 8" wide rim instead of and 8.5", or possible a different offset to maybe save on having to do a little trimming. i researched and asked a lot of questions and was told that the specs i was purchasing would not rub, they do a tiny bit with the wheels fully turned.
