grant, figuring you used wheel spacers to clear in the front, what size did you use? or did you bore out the center lip?

At first, i ran 7/16inch spacers, then i machined out the inside of the wheel so no i don't run spacers.

Hey Randy. Little tip...we can't get our jack under the front crossmember of the truck..it's so low. So, we roll the front tires ontop of 2x4's. Gets it just tall enough to get the jack under the x-member. Just so you know. But you probably already figured it out. lol.

I'm not gonna answer for G-rant, but if you can find them, get some low profile dust caps for the hubs. With the spacers it looks fine, but you see ugly spacers and the wheel sticks out. But without the spacers, the standard dust cap sticks out the hole in the wheel...kinda ugly. IMO.

amazingly enough, the jack still...juust barely fits.

and ya...the pros and cons you just said is exactly what im dealing with. idk....i think i might go with spacers first. Cuz i definitely know the caps sticking out like that would really bug me....

It doesnt matter. It'll cost more to run spacers because you need to install longer wheel studs, which is a pain to do. But i never had problems with the spacers at all.

Some tire shops won't touch trucks with spacers so keep that in mind. It is all up to you.
