32's with no body lift? HELP

I have a 2001 XLT 4x4 with fender flares. I have searched over and over, and still can't find a straight answer. I want to run 32x11.5x15, do I need a body lift? Some say yes if I have fender flares some say no. Will it look stupid if I don't? Pics would be cool too. Thanks

No you don't, I'm running that right now. Just crank you torsion bars a little bit and you'll be golden. Let me find some pics for you.

I did see that, but like I said some people say yes some say no. Will it look stupid with no lift? Some peoples truck look good without it and some don't. Tires being to close to top of fender. I don't want it to look ghetto

i agree with mr. KC man zach. It's been cover plenty of times, with confirmation pics everywhere.


I am running 32x11.50s and no body lift. Well I used to. I since have added 1" body lift. I was running i think 5 turn total cranks on a lower grade torsion bar. Here's a comparo shots....

32x11.50s w/o body lift(slight rub on inner fender probaBLY due to backspace):


32x11.50s w/ 1" body lift(got rid of rub)

Yup, never took them out. The only thing ever removed from my suspension was the stock shackles which were replaced by the Chevy drop shackles.
