Default Bilsteins, RCX BL, Bushwackers, Moto Metals and 35 Toyo MT's!!!

Had to share even though I haven't seen the truck in person yet. Wife runs a dealership and had one of her techs install everything, just sent me some pics. I threw on the Bilsteins on the 2.8 setting, a 1'' rear spacer, 1.25 RCX body lift, 20x10 Moto Metals with -24 offset, 35x12.50 Toyo MT's, and finally Bushwacker pocket flares.

wow that looks awesome! How far out do your wheels stick? I ordered 20x9 with 0 offset wheels that will be in next week... I wanted closer to a -12 offset so I was going to go with 20x10 -12 but the guy at the auto shop told me he figured they would rub fender on my truck with my tires and level, so I may need to get some 1/2 spacers to get them out where I want them

All I can say is I pulled the trigger on the -24 offset knowing I'd need some flares. That's not what I told the wife though hahaha. I told her I made a mistake and the tires will stick out too far...I HAVE to get the flares to keep the truck legal. With the rims at 20x10 and the -24 offset, the tires stuck out over 2 inches easy.

ya I figured they would be out pretty far, I was fine with that but the guy who owns the auto custom shop said I would rub fenders with the wheels sticking out that far when turning. I will probably end up getting flares as well when I get the wheels on, the doors have a few good stone chips in them right now. Good way to play it with the wife too

Where did you get your 1" spacer?
I cannot find any and do need one...
I am going to have a set up pretty close to yours
5100's set max have been on for a while, I have my 35x12.5x20 tires in the garage waiting, putting the body lift in on the 28th, picking up my wheels on the 29th (DC2 -12 OS)...

Bought them off Ebay, only place I could find them and cheap. Glad I got them, I do some light hauling and towing so I wanted a little rake. It sits about 1.5'' higher in the rear now which is right where I wanted it.

I'm gonna throw up some more pics soon, it's at the tire shop getting an alignment.
