    Just finished installing a revtek 3" lift with added leaf springs in the rear. Thinking I may need new rims and tires soon. Will 275/70/18's work or what looks best? Right now I'm riding on factory 265/70/16's and it doesn't look to bad, maybe a bit small.​

    Sweet! Side pics?

    If you wanna go for some aftermarket wheels with 4.5 backspacing... U can fit 285/75/16 or 285/70/17 with little to no rubbing!

    Side view. The more I look at this the more I think I need to go bigger on the wheels and tires.​

    I think it looks pretty damn good man. When you have the cash down the road or when your current tires need replacing, throw on a bigger set. But i like it man, nice work. I cant wait to get my lift project going.

    Nice truck! Wheels and tires will definitely look good, but I think it looks good enough with the stockers that you don't need to be in a hurry!

    Congrats on the lift!

    So I went out and purchased a new set of 17x9 wheels and BFGoodrich 285/70/17 all terrain TA's. I had to remove the front mud flaps and trim the plastic inner fender. Is this common? I almost didn't go through with the purchase, but the way my truck looks...wow, I just had to do it!

    Yes, a "flaps 'n trim" is extremely common with 285s on a 3" lift.

    Did you the entire installation yourself? Level of difficulty? Special lift equipment required - or - can you do it with a couple of jacks?
