Also - from what I have seen MOST of the manuf of the 2" leveling kits say you can run a 35" tire I would think with the Bilstein 5100 setup at 2.1" you would also be ok with a 35.

The BFG AT is a great tire, the 285/65/20 is 11.5" wide so *might* not need a wheel spacer or offset wheel - should be able to just put em on stock 20x9s and go. Which is why I am considering them...wider than stock but not too wide to where I need a spacer. Height according to the BFG site is 34.7" - so thinking the stocker is 33" tall, makes this one 1.7" taller so .85" closer to the fender...again should be ok under 2" - not sure what the height difference is but my 07 has only 2" level and have had 35s on it for 5 years. A TRUE 35" tire (Toyo MT 35x12.50) rubbed pretty bad near lock on both sides and also the side wall would rub in the rear when turning onto an incline and truck flexed a bit even with 1/4" wheel spacers on the stock 20s. BUT since then I have ran 2 sets of Toyo ATs that are 34.5" tall and love them! Full lock with some compression may get a LITTLE rub but no big deal. But these DO need 1/4" wheel spacers or I think -12 offset wheel to fit.

Its in the shop right now getting a 6" BDS suspension lift with upgraded 2.0 Fox Shox along with bush wacker pocket flares painted to match and RBP mud flaps. But as an option on the kit they have the dual steering stabilizers so I got them to order them not thinking about our trucks being IFS and not to familiar with IFS and stabilizers can someone help me...
