    I thought I had my “build” all planned out and ordered everything to start on it. 6112/5100’s, 265/70r17 k02’s on method NV’s. Stock UCA unless aftermarket is needed and if so I’ll run the SPC’s.

    My plan was to set the 6112’s at 5/4 for 1.5” lift upfront, and a 1” block in the rear for now. Sitting on 265/70’s I felt this would give it a nice look that’s not overly aggressive, mainly leveled with a slight rearward rake. I’m seeing all these tacos sitting on 285/70’s and I’m starting to think I’m going to be disappointed.

    I don’t “need” 285/70’s but they look great, I really don’t want to open Pandora’s box with having to cut and deal with rubbing on this truck. I’ve overbuilt multiple trucks in the past and I want a more basic truck that’ll do what we need without throwing the whole kitchen sink at it.

    So with that being said let’s see some trucks leveled or small lifts sitting on 265/70r17’s.

    I have the exact same set up that you’re planning to do 6112/5100. 5/4 up front for 1.5” lift and 1” rear block. 265/70/17 KO2

    I honestly couldn’t be happier with this set up and look. I definitely will not go bigger in tire size. That’s like opening up Pandora’s box. Not looking into trimming or doing a cmc on my baby. With this lift the tire size is perfect. Looks way more aggressive than stock.

    As far as power goes I haven’t really noticed any changes exact the gas mileage lol. Stock I was averaging around 22-23 mpg and now I’m at 17-18 mpg

    I’ll take some pictures here shortly

    Running 265/70/17 on mine with 2" Eibach lift in the front and an ICON 1.5" AAL in the rear with Eibach shocks. 265/70 looks just right with a ~2" imo

    265/75/16 Wildpeaks with 1.25” wheel spacers; Bilstein 5100s on 4th clip (1.55) and AAL on back. Other pics of the same tire and rim size seem to look better. I won’t go bigger but can’t figure out why my tires look smaller than other with same setup.

    Probably with the factory 16x7 wheels and no negative offset, imo a wider wheel with negative offset makes the tires look bigger

    They shouldn't if they are the same brand of tire.
    But the numerical tire size varies from manufacture to manufacture. Not all 265 are physically the same size.

    Truck looks great. How is the ride compared to the OEM suspension with this setup? Does the rear block make things stiff?

    Rear blocks shouldn’t make it any stiffer then the factory springs as your not doing anything but adding a spacer. A AAL will change the ride as you are adding more spring rate to the leaf by adding more leafs in

    Thanks. I'm a total novice when it comes to suspension changes so this is very helpful :)

    Your picture is exactly why I bought my truck, except there will be Honda Goldwing in the UHaul trailer. Which size trailer is that?

    Yeah that's one of the reasons I got the truck also. The trailer is uhaul's motorcycle trailer 7'8" x 3'9.5". Your Goldwing should fit in there fine.

    Would it be leveled without the rear block? I’m considering similar setup but want to leave rear height alone.
