well i did some more reading and apparently the Vibrations experienced with the ready lift SST in the 2011s is stil present in the 2012s so im going with the 5100s now, ill be grabbing them from ESSEX distributors in BC unless you know somewhere cheaper..

my mind is still running around my rim options...i am for sure going with the hostage 20s and i for sure am going with the 35x12.5 tires but im still up in the air about the rims width and offset...

i want the tires to match the pocketstyles but also dont want other issues to arise

Keep in mind any leveling kit once it gets to a certain lifting point will create vibration in 4wd from a stop to fast acceleration. That being said, who drives like that.
If going with Bilsteins, I would set them to 2.1 rather than maxing them to minimize this.

I mean some guys till fit 35". I think you'd be disappointed with 285s... At least I always have been.

I am planning on doing the same once my ordered 2013 comes in...post some photos up if you don't mind once done.

Also - from what I have seen MOST of the manuf of the 2" leveling kits say you can run a 35" tire fine...so I would think with the Bilstein 5100 setup at 2.1" you would also be ok with a 35.

The BFG AT is a great tire, the 285/65/20 is 11.5" wide so *might* not need a wheel spacer or offset wheel - should be able to just put em on stock 20x9s and go. Which is why I am considering them...wider than stock but not too wide to where I need a spacer. Height according to the BFG site is 34.7" - so thinking the stocker is 33" tall, makes this one 1.7" taller so .85" closer to the fender...again should be ok under 2" - not sure what the height difference is but my 07 has only 2" level and have had 35s on it for 5 years. A TRUE 35" tire (Toyo MT 35x12.50) rubbed pretty bad near lock on both sides and also the side wall would rub in the rear when turning onto an incline and truck flexed a bit even with 1/4" wheel spacers on the stock 20s. BUT since then I have ran 2 sets of Toyo ATs that are 34.5" tall and love them! Full lock with some compression may get a LITTLE rub but no big deal. But these DO need 1/4" wheel spacers or I think -12 offset wheel to fit.
