Default 2.5/1.5 Readylift & 3" bodylift. NEED TIRE HELP!

Hey everyone, I just installed my body lift on my truck. And it looks awesome combined with Readylift SST lift. Any chance I could run 35x12.50-20's on stock wheels? Dose anyone here have the same lift combo on stock wheels? If so what tires are you running? Any suggestions?

the widest tire you'll be able to run is 11.85" unless you add a wheel spacer, with the extra 3" i might suggest doing 1/4" spacers than running the 295/65/20 Nitto Trail Grappler MT, its 35 1/2" X 12 1/8" and looks real aggressive

I installed a 2.5" leveling kit along with a Zone 3" body lift and just 3 weeks ago was able to fit 37"x 12.50"-20" Nitto Trail Grapplers on my stock rims. I did not use any wheel spacers and have no tire rub anywhere so I would think the 35" Nitto's would fit for you.





Scooter51 do you have any pictures of your truck right now?

That is a nice looking setup you have there!

So it's a 2.5 leveling kit with the spacer in the front, plus a 3" body lift? So approx. 5 inches in the front?

Thanks dhondo & BDG. To answer your question BDG my truck started out when I installed a Top Gun Customz 2.5" leveling kit. I then added a Zone 3" body lift to it for a total of 5.5" of lift up front. I needed to get new tires so a few weeks ago I thought I'd see if the Nitto 37" Trail Grapplers would fit on it and was surprised when they did with no rubbing at all. Oh and I do have a set of Bilstein 5100 shocks on it but kept them at stock ride height setting and the overall ride feels great. Here it is at a different angle.

Yeah I really like that look. I am really new to all of this, I didn't even know you could "stack" kits like that.

Do you mind if I ask how much it cost to get those done?

I see it's an 08, I wonder if there is much difference in the sizing between Gen's

Oh yeah, I was also going to ask if you had any issues with vibration or wobble while in 4WD ?

Sweet looking truck. I just bought a 2012 2500, looking at putting the same tires on mine, do they ride well, what about noise level on highway? I was going to do a 6 inch lift with 37's, but that may be too big, so ive been looking at a 4.5 inch lift (ICON) and gonna run 35' w/22's.

That color is great too, great looking ride
