New set up, 2.5 leveling kit on 35's on a 2wd 06 pics inside
 
sup guys, just purchased some federal couragias m/t 35x12.5 on my stock 20's, all i have is a 2.5 leveling kit, 1/4"spacer in the front but i think it would've fit without a spacer, just being on the safe side. so for all you guys that are curious if 35's will fit with just a leveling kit, it works with very little rubbing, only on full locked turn all comments welcome

That looks awesome!! 4x4 height without the 4x4 price. Lovin those rims too... I thought about painting mine, but I don't think the "flower petal" looking 20's would look good painted black...

did you paint your stock rims ??

Looks good. Do you notice much difference in ride height? I'm looking to go with some BFG 33"s on 18" DC-1 wheels with 2-1/2 leveling kit... just not sure what to expect in ride height... whether I'll gain much or sit close to the same? Forgot to mention, my truck is 4wd if that makes a difference...?

Interesting...are those the stock wheels?

Ya those are stock rims painted black.

Diggin the Truck...What leveling kit did you use? i plan to level mine soon and get some bigger tires under it

Looks good. I'm wondering the same thing as 4x4Wannabe.

Also, anybody know if I'm correct in assuming that the front end suspension on the 2006 models is the same as a 2008?

Does the bigger tires mess the speedo up? Does the bigger tires kill gas miliage? Would you have to regear the diff is these are yes answers?

It changes the speedo a little bit. It doesn't really kill gas mileage, but it also depends on your gearing. I would feel safe running 35s with 3.92, but if you have 3.55 or lower you would lose some power.
