1st number is front amount of lift/lowering, 2nd is the back.

you'll clear 33's no issue with a body lift. dont go more then 3.75 Back spacing though of you'll cook wheel bearings. Also running 33's you have to check wheel bearings every 6 months. I check mine every oil change.

But yes, you will be ok with 33's. gearing will be a little short, but 4.10 is recommended so your not far off. again you'll be OK.

Eventualy you can do spindles and shackles, 2" rear block and get it nice and tall. But are you looking to build a mud truck? if you are ya started with the wrong truck lol.

Also take your time. just because you have money doesnt mean you need to spend it on something. I used to do that, could never afford the nice parts because i never had more then 5-600 in my bank. Ive taken time to do stuff, and am placing $1600 orders now. Same job, same ideas... just planned out. Thats my #1 advise. it also get you more excited and gives you time to research and rethink things. (dont wanna buy the wrong thing on impulse)


Oh, and dont listen to what others say about what works and what doesnt. alot of people either havent tried things or just talk about what they have read. (this coming from the guy that run 32x11.5's on STOCK xlt coil 2wd suspension with zero rubbing)

Thanks for actually answering all of my questions Nate haha. I have plenty of funds to get nice parts. I not the type to go cheap on vital parts ha. The only thing keeping my from doing this right now is just pulling the trigger. I always flip flop on big projects like this.

I'm not wanting a mud truck but more of a bad *** looking truck really... I don't like the little street truck look so I want the "mud truck" look.

then a set of 32x11.5's on 15x8's with 4" BS would look sick. Here.







oh and for *****, 32's on stock suspension no rubbing :) (even though i love the build on my truck, i miss it looking like this. It was so clean and straight back then lol. Heres what just tires and rims do for you.

Holy stuffed 32's on stock 2wd coil springs (forgot to quote the post). That's retarded. And here my 32's beat the hell out of my fenders.....and I'm a 4x4! Why not actually clear tires than to barely clear??

Rule of thumb: 2wd coil springs require 3" lift to fit what a stock 4x4/2wd torsion bar fits.

Don't be cheap. Get a quality A/T or a quality M/T. Tires are alot like auto batteries, you generally get what you pay for.


Not saying the most expensive = the best rubber ever, just saying what I believe when it comes to rubbers.
