Here's a pic with a set of LT275 65R20 Cooper AT3's on 20x8.5 KMC Skitch wheels with 5.34" backspacing, they have about an inch from the tire sidewall to the knuckle and the tires spec out at 34.2" tall. My wheel opening measurements are now 41.5" rear 42.125" front so I gained 1/2" in ride height. I picked up the 3" coils and I'll get them on someday soon and report back.

Thanks a bunch ......... I wasn't sure I'd like them on this truck but after they were installed I was pretty happy. I grabbed a set of hubcentric rings to mate up the wheels to the hubs and they run true and smooth, well worth getting a set in my opinion. When I had this set on my 2011 they had a shake to them we couldn't balance out, turns out those rings really are necessary.

No, those stripes are painted on. I did a set on my white 2011 Sport hood as well, they really make the hood pop.

Let me re-phrase that....... "I had someone paint the stripes on my 2011 and the same guy did these ones"..... There's no way I'd attempt that on my own.
