Here is mine with 5100's and the rcx body lift, the tires are 295/65/20(35.5/12.2/20) on the stock rims. As you can see, there is plenty of clearance. Your only issue is going to be rubbing the UCA, which isn't a huge deal. I added .25" spacers to get rid of that issue, may not be enough with true 12.5" wide tires though.

Did the body lift effect the distance between the exhaust tips and the bumper? Or do they move up with the lift? I've never paid attention to how the exhaust is mounted.
Relocating the tips with the rcx body lift is cake, just loosen the tips and they pivot up and look stock. 5 minute job tops... That wouldn't work with the 3" body lift though, that angle would be too much.

more details on the BL install please! I had a guy tell me it was a PITA and he wants $500 to do it..

OP..That looks awesome man!
Do not pay more than $200 to get the rcx kit installed, it's very easy. The only power tool you really need is a Drill with a 1/2" bit. If you have a garage, basic tools, and some mechanical skills you should be fine. Read through the directions, if you see something that your not sure about let me know!

Looks sharp! I had an exhaust shop put an 18"magnaflow with 2.5 pipes in and they welded everything together. I guess I can always take it back and have the tips moved.

Just the 2.5" RC leveling kit and 1/4" spacers. The lift is like $200 something, install was $280 including alignment after. The tires are what killed me, they were like $320 a pop. Altogether I paid around $2k.

Does anyone have tow hooks with a body lift? Do they need to be removed?
