    You've got to take the aspect ratio into consideration.
    275/70R17 is 275mm wide and the side wall is 70% of that, (275 x 70% = 192.5mm)

    Don't forget overall height of a tire has 2 sidewalls.... From the ground you have the sidewall, then the rim, then another sidewall.

    192.55mm + 17" (431.80mm) + 192.55mm = 816.9mm or 32.16"

    so the wider tire is taller because the two sidewalls are bigger.

    285/70R17
    285 x 70% = 199.5
    199.5mm + 17" (431.8mm) + 199.5mm = 830.80mm or 32.71"

    That looks like a lot of thread showing. What spring rate do you run?

    600LB’s, I was wondering if it was too much because I haven’t seen anyone run this much and was looking, I took it to a shop, should I have them bring it down?

    Not too bad, a little stiff on the ride but besides that no complaints and corners really well. Not able to take it out off road until
    This weekend so not sure about yet

    If i were you, i'd measure how much travel you have. I have icons, and they say at least three inches of travel with my setup. Couldn't tell you what factory fox suggest, but measure it out. Your truck looks good though.

    I'd drop it an inch, but that is my opinion. I like a little rake. My truck has 3 to 4 threads showing (like out of the box) but I also have 700lb springs, plate bumper, and winch. So, a little bit different scenario

    Can I do that just by jacking up the truck? And I’m thinking the same, and since my RXT pack has settled it brought my back end down a little. So I’d prefer a level or atleast slight rake.

    You could, but I had a local shop in my area do it for me. I tried using the local hobby shop on 29 Palms, but they tried to get me to wait a few days. Im impatient. If you can get away with doing it on a bigger back, go for it. Although you might have to go get it aligned again (at least I would to be safe).

    I’m taking it back to
    The shop, I tried loosening it and no luck, and I really don’t feel like making a costly mistake. Wheeling is postponed until next Friday

    Better safe than sorry. It shouldn't take them long. What's it measuring at right now?

    I have 2” of thread showing, king recommends 1” and that would bring my truck level anyway so I’d rather that, not a fan of the Cali lean, If have to go back out and measure for hub to fender
