Default 37's rub?

I currently have a 6" RCX lift with Bilsteins @ .7" with 35x12.5-20 nitto on 20x10 -24mm wheel

I plan on maxing the shocks @ 2" and adding the 1.25 BL and hopefully upgrading to 37's when these 35's wear out...

Will the 37's rub with the new setup with a -24 wheel?

The 35" nitto trails measure about 34.25...what are the height on the 37's?

If you max the Bilsteins and add a body lift you'll clear those 37's no problem.

The actual height of 37's will slightly vary between manufacturers. The best thing to do is just check their website and go to the tire specs. That will tell you what the mounted height is.

Your 0 offset is what allows for Zero rub.

OP has - 24 which is a whole other ball game

37" Trails are about 36.5"
But I'd recommend those are they are also 12.5" wide vs the norm of 13.5" which will rub.

But as Brandon said, by maxing the Bilsteins and adding a body lift, you'll be more than fine and can more than likely rock 13.5" like the Toyo MT.
That almost 3" additional allows for much more.

I'd set those Bilsteins to 1.4 if it were my truck. But your call

fastNugly- I failed to mention this is a 3rd gen where the shocks max at 2" vs the 2.8" of the 4th gen...

I know most ppl are running them at 2.1 (4th gen) so are you saying maxing mine at 2" would hurt anything?

Thanks

Yup. Fully aware your max is 2.1 and in most cases, no, it does not harm your truck.
But as stated above, if it was my truck, I'd put them at 1.4 and since you're adding a body lift, you nearly adding 3" which is more enough to clear those wheels.

There was another member here who had the RCX lift and maxed Bilsteins and his tires were hitting is A arm.
He dropped it down and all was Ok.
Again, not all trucks are created equal
Plus ride wise, the lower the Bilstein is the 0 the smoother the ride is.
But its your truck
