also forgot to mention, no rubbing with the 33's on the stock 20's only thing was that the inside of my mudflaps stuck out towards the tire so I zip tied them to the plastic wheel well because the tires did rub a bit... I will take a picture of the tires turned so you can see the clearance to the fender/bumper if you want. My ready lift kit was 190 plus tax..

Thanks for the picture. That is exactly what i am wanting to do. I like the 33's on there and am glad to hear that they dont rub on stock wheels. Will 35's fit with a 2'' level or will they rub.

not 100% sure if they would rub or not, saw another truck same as mine with same level with 35's but didnt see the owner to ask if they rub... if you go with something narrower than 12.5 wide they wont rub... I think on uneven ground while turning hard they would rub the bumper a little... I will get a pick today of the wheels turned and the clearances and throw it on here

ok here are a few pics of the clearances on my truck... FYI I read in 1 of the threads stickied to the top of the light page that with 1/4" spacers you can fit 35x12.5 with stock wheels and a 2" level ( I wish I had read that 2 months ago!)



This is where I had to zip tie the mudflap to the wheel well...


Excuse the gesture haha just trying to give you an idea of the distance

photo(9).jpgheres a pic of mine..dinky little tires got to go but..i would save the 200.00 your about to spend on the keys...you don't need them to crank up the bars...i was going to do the same thing but now putting it toward shocks or tires...but to each there own...... just my 2 cents

So know what are the pros and cons to both cranking the torsion bars or useing keys. Saving the money for tires and wheels would be nice but if keys will save some wear and tear on parts than they would be worth it.

I have no idea, I would imagine there would be a few cons to not using keys otherwise no one would use keys and would just crank their bars.... maybe r1500 or somone else can enlighten
