Default Pulling the trigger on RCX 6inch

Well, Ive been saying right along that this summer Im doing the RCX 6 inch lift, and some wheels and tires for my truck. Im about to pull the trigger. Truck is an 07, right now, I have bilsteins on all four corners, with the fronts set max (2 inches). Now Ive seen people combine bilsteins and a 6 inch lift to get 8 inches of lift out of the front of their truck on the 4th gens, can I do the same with my 07? Plus with 8 inches in the front, im gonna need 6 inches in the rear. The rcx kit comes with a 4 inch block for the rear. Is it even safe to run 6 inch blocks in the rear????? As far as wheels, I like my tires to stick out a couple inches from the truck, I was thinking of doing 20x10 wheels with a -12 offset? I think that should give me what im looking for? with 37 inch tires.

Also, who has the best rim and tire deals?

Thanks in advance for the help!

sounds like you have a plan. not exactly sure about the rear blocks, hopefully someone as will chime in. but yes u can add the bilstein height to the lift
height. I don't think it'll be EXACTLY 8" but probably close.

can't wait to see pics, ESP with those 37s

Just confirmed my purchase of the RCX 6 inch lift, 20x9 Fuel Hostage Wheels, and 35x13.5x20 Fuel Mud gripper tires! All through Fast'nugly at Bully's Performance! We have a great guy here on the forums, I think I asked him about a hundred questions before we could nail down a package that worked, and I liked. HIGHLY recommend doing business through him!

Also, I went with 35's because i figured ill just get a feel for the 6 inch first with 35's and bilsteins set at factory height. It wont be hard to bigger later down the road!
