    6" fab tech.. Some guys run 33s which look fine but I'd go 35s.

    Your answer depends on the tire manufacturer though, they have the approved tire specs on their websites.

    thanks guys. im pretty sure 285s are 33s. just wanted to get a more beefy look this time around. You guys happen to know anything about replacing UCAs and if it helps with steering?

    Don't need aftermarket UCAs since the fab tech is a DB lift, wouldn't have any effect on steering. They are used for alignment purposes only.
