Default 20x12's on 2wd

I have a 2000 extended cab 2wd. I purchased a used 3 inch lift kit off of ebay for a 2000 regular cab. The kit came with 3 inch coils, upper a arms, rancho shocks, and 3 inch blocks for the rear. I just purchased 4 inch blocks for the rear because I plan on buying a 3.5 inch spindle from fabtech for a total of 6.5 inches of lift in the front. My question is will this be enough lift to clear 20x12 fuel hostages on a 33x12.5 tire? I know most people would not lift a 2wd, let alone put 20x12's on one, but every since I've seen these wheels I'm in love.

i dont see why it wouldnt. granted im on a 4wd, but if this gives you some kind of idea, i have a 5 inch bds lift, and im running 35/12.5s with no clearance issues. i think you should be alright.

your wheels are a 20x12? thats a realllllllly wide rim man, you might run into mounting issues with the tires

Default 20x12,s finally!

This past october, I was looking around on craigslist and found a complete fabtech 6.5 lift for 250.00. I thought it was a misprint, but all the parts arrived. I brought this lift to run 20x12's on 33's, but after seeing so many people complain about rubbing on leveled 4wd 2500's and lifted 4wd 1500's I got discouraged. Between the lift kit,shipping; installation; wheels and tires, I was already out of 3600.00. I wish I had just gotten a 4wd, but with all the money I've spent, I decided to put the wheels on. No rubbing! It only rubbed at full lock while hitting a pothole coming out of my driveway, but not enough to be concerned about. I did use a 5 inch block out back instead of the 4 inch that came with the lift, so the back sits a little higher than the front ,but barely.
