Default Lift?

Hey everyone im looking to put 35"x12.5s on my 1999 2500 and I wondering if they would fit with just a 2 inch leveling kit. If anyone has pictures of their 3/4 ton with 35'sthat would be great.

I've seen a 99 2500 done with a 3 inch spacer. His 315's rubbed just a tad at full lock.
I'm sorry, don't have any pics. It was an awesome truck though.

I'm not sure if they would fit or not. I had to go 4" up to fit 35's but I don't have any rubbing at the top of the wheelwell or at the backside of the bumper when turning. It's pretty close to the fender at the rear, too.

12.5's may rub at full steering lock inside and if the truck isn't high enough, on your fender opening too.

You'll probably need spacers more then a lift kit. I dont have a 2500, only a 1500 and no lift kit and they rub at full steering lock. I dont think a lift kit would solve that, most likely spacers would.

Heres a pic of my truck to give you an idea, I have a feeling if i put spacers on i would be fine. If I went straight lift, I'd probably have use atleast a 4inch lift

i got 2WD 1500 and I only did a 1/2 Daystar Budget Boost Leveling kit and I have 315/75 BFG Mud Terrains and they scrubbed the fender well and I had to cut about 6 inches out. Other than that they dont until I do a full turn then they barely scrub on the lower control arm. I got a pic.. Ill try figuring out how to get it on here that way you have an idea on how itd look.

with the day star did you get the kit or just the spacers?
also if your truck it the off road version does it have a lift from the factory, and what is it?
thanks
