Nice Im just trying to decide on the lift I wan to do.

Im thinking I may just do the tortion bar crank, and maybe a small block in the back.

I want to run a 15 x 8 or 10 .... or a 16 x 8 .. I want the wheels to fit flush to the fender.

Im not too sure what the backspacing I will need.

hah

So I have been reading like mad, just have a few questions if anyone can help that would be great.

Im going to run a 285 75 16 tire on a 16 x 8 wheel.

As far as the lift goes, I will just be doing the prekey or cranked tortion bars on the front.

Now on the rear, I would like to lift it slightly.. Are the stock blocks a 1.5" ?

If I ditched the 1.5" block and put the 3" block would it have a decent stance or would it be 80s drag race truck?

Would a 2" block be a better choice? I have read not too stack blocks, I find it funny because the dealership here has a 2011 with blocks stacked.

would it be okay to run a 2" block stacked ontop of the 1.5" or just get a 3" block and run it by itself

Red dragons. I think it's a skate board thing. There is more meaning to it though.

Arron, truck is looking good. Glad to see you took my advice on lifting it.
