I could have gotten 35's that way. Too lazy to switch it now. haha. Aso for anyone else chiming in I think I switched to a -12 offset for a wheel. Rockstar II's are awesome!
I will try and get that to you early next week, just too busy at the moment

Boosted,

any pictures of it directly from the side? Just wanted to get an idea of how much the wheel well fills up. Seems that everyone here who runs a level is actually running a lift. (spacers in the rear.) At least that's what I think. Thanks again for the reply!

Also thanks hemi deep. I appreciate it. A guy wants to get it right the first time if I'm dropping a ton of money on this setup!

Sorry it took so long but weather here hasn't been cooperating. Best I could do for now. If the weather clears up, I will try to get a better picture.

Regardless of the picture thanks! I think I might want to go bigger. It's really hard to decide unless you have it right in front of you. Maybe one of the local shops has something that I can put next to it and see if that can't make up my mind!

Sorry for the newb question, but I can't find the answer in search. I have read all the positives about using the Bilstein Adjustable shocks to help with leveling and the different settings to use, but basic....what are the bilstein part numbers to use...

Just got a 2014 Express Crew 4x4

Thx in advance

Here's a better picture with 2" front level and 285/75R17 (33.8" tall) tires.


And now with 315/70R17 (34.6" tall) tires.



You can click on the photo's to zoom in to get a better view of the gaps.
