might get by with a 3" level lift and alittle rub, but a 4" suspension lift would be better.
doesnt matter if its 18" wheel or 20" still going to be 35" diameter.alot depends on the backspacing of your wheels.

go to the newbie section and introduce yourself!!! welcome to the forum!!

35" is 35". No matter what the wheel size. I've asked the same question before. There is a guy on this forum, I'm sure he'll reply, that has 35x12.50x20 Nitto Mud Grapplers on his truck and says a leveling kit and 1/4" wheel spacers on the front is all he has. hope everything goes well for you. let us know and post some pics. oh, and welcome to the forum!!!

You should have torsion bars for your front suspension so just crank up on them a little if you haven't already. Put a 1/4" spacers on the front (not needed for the back) and install those 35". You getting the new mud tires from nitto or the mud grapplers?
Here's the spacer's you will need: http://www.summitracing.com/parts/GOR-SP603/

So, if you only need spacers on the front do the fronts stick out noticeably? (i know its only a quarter inch)
