    I have a set of 16" rims now and was wanting to upgrade my 3" lift on truck to a 6" but have read online that you must have 17"+ rims in order to do so. Any truth behind this? Or is it only with certain lifts? Also can my 3" lift be combined with the new 6" lift?

    IIRC, THe drop bracket lifts use a different spindle, so the larger wheel must be used.

    could a spacer be used to make the 16" fit?

    I heard you cant with the pro comp cause the spindles are different. ( dont quote me on that one). But i do know that the RCD DB lift will fit the 16" stockers but you will have to trim the tie rods a little.
