Great looking truck. Are those 35x12.50-20's?. I have the Readylift 2.5/1.5 spacer kit, and a 3" body lift I just installed my self. I'm just trying to figure out if a true 35x12.50-20 will work with the 1/4" spacers. Thanks

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!

The BL wasn't hard, more tedious than anything. You'll need a angle grinder with a cut off wheel, a 1/2" drill bit, and a small welder for the crush blocks, and a good torque wrench for the body bolts. Oh and a 3 1/2 ton floor jack and some 4x4 cribing . I definently would suggest a nice garage to do it in. I did it myself and took my time, 6 hours one night and 6 hours the next day. If you are semi mechanical, just take your time and you should be OK.

They're 35x12.50/20's...I'm a little skeptical about a 1/4" spacer taking care of the rubbing but we'll see. If not I think some light grinding on the UCA should clear it up. Doesn't really affect driveability but it's annoying as hell for someone who's anal about their vehicles.

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.

You will need to raise your exhaust pipes some how, or deal with a 3" gap. I have a Flowmaster American thunder exhaust kit, and was able to loosen my exhaust clamps and re-tweak all the bends so that it fits well.
