  1. Hey everyone. I finally pulled the trigger and ordered the new ReadyLift 2" SST Lift Kit for my Trail Boss. It adds 2" to the factory 2" lift, in a safe manner, for a total of 4" of lift. I also purchased a new set of Mickey Thompson Baja MTZ 35x12.5R20 tires (swear by these). The kit is on a 1-2 week backorder but the tires will be here today. As soon as I get everything, i will post pics and will describe how the install process went. I am also selling my current tires Mickey Thompson Baja MTZ 305/55R20 (33.5x12.5R20) that have 13/32 left of tread on them. If anyone is local to Michigan, DM me if you are interested and I will be putting up a listing shortly. As always, any questions please dont hesitate to ask. Pics of current setup will have to do for now.
  2. Is anyone running this set up on a 2.7? If so how is it handling the 35’s in terms of fuel economy and power? Really curious too because of the 3.42 gear ratio. Feel free to share pics of your ride too. Love seeing 35’s on these new trucks.
  3. Hello guys. I have a 2017 Silverado RWD. That has a spindle lift currently. With the spindle and a small level it sits at around 7” of lift (install shop said it should be the equivalent of a 4x4 with a 6” lift). There was some light trimming done. Mainly zip ties on both wheel wells. I’m running 20x10 -18 wheels wrapped in 35x12.5 Toyo RTs. With only one passenger and myself there are no clearance issues. However once I add people in the back seats I get noticeable rubbing on turns and when backing out of spots in reverse. I plan on taking it back to the shop. I was thinking adding Bilstein 5100 adjustable struts in the front and changing out the control arms to clear around 2 more inches in the front. Hoping it alleviates the rubbing. Do you guys have any other suggestions for my situation? Thanks
  4. A flat Good Year Wrangler SR-A set the tire shopping in motion, and a 10% off sale on Nittos convinced me to try the 35x11.50r20 Ridge Grapplers. My goal was to get as much tire as possible without having to adjust the suspension so as to retain the stock ride, keep costs down, and achieve the aesthetic I like for modern 4x4 trucks. I was prepared to crank the front keys a few turns for up to 1" of leveling, but my preference was to avoid this if possible. Ridge grapplers have two sidewall designs on the tire; one side reminded me of Transformers, so I went with the more subdued sidewall. This doesn't impact fitment. After about 20 miles of driving and some parking lot testing turning the steering back and forth, the tires fit fine with only a few close spots throughout the range of motion. I've seen people report frame rub at full lock with these sizes; it hasn't happened to my truck yet, but I wouldn't be surprised if it rubs mildly while turning sharply over rough terrain. Rear clearance is fine. A few tips: Check the actual dimensions of the tire you're choosing. The Nittos are 35s, but the actual diameter is about 34.7". Each manufacturer is a little different, and most list the true dimensions on their websites. The same applies to metric sizes - a BFG may be narrower than a Toyo. Looking at my truck, 35x12.50r20 would have fit too, but would probably rub on the wheel wells while going over bumps during a turn. The 11.50s provide just enough extra room that my truck has yet to rub, though my mileage count is low (20 miles since install) so I'll update this thread as I add miles. Expect to lose fuel economy. No data yet, but I anticipate a 1-2 MPG drop. Aftermarket wheels change everything. The popular offset or "poking" look makes it harder to stuff big tires without a lift. If you're changing wheels and tires, disregard this thread. What's next? Fresh oil, a detail, and maybe a front window tint. I'd like a Corsa, but they're $$$. Please excuse the dirty truck:
  5. I have a 2014 silverado 1500 with a 3in level on it. I'm thinking about some new wheels, I was looking at stock 22x9 with +24 offset wrapped with 285/55r22 nitto trail graps. The specs on the tires are 34.5x12. I see a lot of people clearing 35s under a level, do you guys think this setup I am looking at is possible?
  6. New to the forum and I’m looking for some help. I have a 2014 Sierra that I’m taking to get a 4” readylift and 35/12.5/22 trail grapplers installed. Im keeping my stock 22” flakes. The lift company says I will need spacers for stock wheels. But Idk what size should I run. I do not want to trim my studs!!
  7. So back when I was in college I put on a 2 inch level and 1.5 BL to clear 33s by 12.5. I still rub but it’s done the job. However I found an insanely good deal on a zone 6.5 suspension kit that I am going to install and remove the two inch level but obviously keep the body lift. might be a dumb question but is the suspension kit a true 6.5 lift? And same for the 1.5 BL? Meaning would I really technically have 8 inches of lift? I plan to upgrade to 35s but just curious
  8. Hello, Looking to upgrade my 2017 Silverado 1500 LTZ 4WD. I am set on the 4" BDS Lift kit with the Fox shocks. Is there any benefit to the BDS Recoil System Traction bar upgrade? Or any benefit to the Rear leaf springs upgrade instead of the 4" blocks? Secondly, I am deciding on whether I should get 33" tires or 35" - Any suggestions. Don't want 33's to look small, but don't want 35's to look to big or not fit. Wanting the Nitto Ridge Grappler Tires and Fuel Rebel 8 D679 20x10 Rims. Any suggestions on the BDS upgrades or Tire sizes is greatly appreciated. First time lifting a truck. Thanks!
  9. Anyone running a 6.5" Lift with 35's OR a 4.5" lift? Anyone have measurements? Wheel well, roof, front/rear bumper? I haven't seen many people discussing their overall heights.
  10. I was just curious as to whether people ran spacers after they did their lifts. I have read that you need a 1.5" spacer on the rear after adding a 4.5" lift to compensate for the front track width being wider.
  11. Truck was purchased new in November 2014. It's the 5.3L, with 3.42 gears. SLT crew cab short box 4x4 model. I added the G4 Elite Fold-A-Cover week 1.
  12. I'm selling a set of 4 LRG Rims Insomnia Series 20x9 Wheels in Satin Black. The tires are Pro Comp 35x12.50R20 Tire, Xtreme MT2. The set is mounted, balanced and also includes tire sensors. These have approx. 350 miles on them and am selling for a friend who went with a larger lift + 40s. Located in Burbank, CA Asking $1600 Reference links for each below: Wheels: https://www.4wheelparts.com/p/lrg-rims-insomnia-series-110-20x9-wheel-with-8-on-180-bolt-pattern-satin-black-11029089718/_/R-FVCN-11029089718 Tires: https://www.4wheelparts.com/p/pro-comp-35x12-50r20-tire-xtreme-mt2-701235/_/R-BKBR-701235
  13. I've been looking at the AMP Terrain Grippers as they are a pretty good price for around $800 for a set of 33s and are a really aggressive all terrain tire design. If anyone's running them can you please post pics and reviews on them such as road noise, comfort, and tread life etc...
  14. Just looking to see what's the best way to fit 35s on my truck, its stock right now looking to upgrade
  15. Hi community! So 4x4 build question for folks. I have a ‘14 GMC 2500 C/C SB Z71 with the six 0 and 4:10s. It currently has a 3 inch lift in the front and 1 inch lift in the rear, just shy of level. I love the GMC stock rims and really don’t want to replace them. I have the 18x8 rims and currently have 270/75/18 Ko2s on them. I actually do go off into jeep country, do overlanding and earthroaming with the truck and have a 12.5k Warn on it for getting unstuck, KO2s and 4 low havent failed me yet. Time for the question: Does anyone know if I can safely fit 35 x 12.5 KO2s on the 18x8 rims and safely be air’d down to 35 psi if needed? I don’t really 5th wheel or trailer with it, occassionally “Home improvement” loads from Home depot in the bed so im not really concerned with running over 65-70 psi. All the tire places recommend atleast 18 x 8.5 rims for 35 x 12.5 tires but I’m wondering if that half inch really makes a difference since I know people run even wilder size gaps but usually on lighter vehicles like jeeps and 1/2 tons. Also any insight on the tires not rubbing with the factory backspacing based on my lift? I’d really like to get the extra 1ish ground clearance at the pumpkin from moving up to 35s (34.5). Thanks, James
  16. Hi all, I am looking to start a slow conversion to turn my truck into something like a prerunner and I'm looking for suggestions and advice. Current set-up: 2015 LTZ Crew cab 4X4 w/6.2L and 8spd tranny -Rancho Quicklift Leveling Struts -275/70/r18 General Grabber AT2(on stock alloys) Goal: -Make my truck look something similar to the 2nd picture Information needed: -What is the best order to do the mods in considering some require others already be in place? -What parts will I need aside from bumpers, fiberglass fenders/custom fender wells? -What parts will 35's or 37's rub in the front? In the rear?(assuming I already have 3inch or 5.5 inch fiberglass fenders already installed) -What issues will I run into with each modification? -When after I get to the desired appearance, what suspension is highly recommended for daily deliverable yet efficient off-road(i.e. Fox 2.0? 2.5? Icon stage? King ? Etc.) Thanks!
  17. I have a 2014 silverado 1500, I have stock z71 18in wheels and a 3in leveling kit (front only). I have nitto trail graps now (285/65r18) which are like 32.9 in diameter and have no problems with rubbing or anything. I am interesting in going up to 35/12.50r18 trail graps to better fill out the wheel wells under the same 3in leveling kit. I have searched around on several forums and seen where guys are running 35s under a 3in level with no problems, I'm a little skeptical of this though. I would like some feedback on whether or not I could clear these tires.
  18. Hello, I have a 2007 GMC Sierra 2500hd (new body style, not classic). This is the first truck I have ever owned. I am a female with limited knowledge about tires and wheels. Currently, my truck has tiny 16 inch stock wheels. The truck is not lifted but I plan to level it when I get new wheels/tires. I would like a "beefed up" look without having to make any modifications other than leveling. My primary use for the truck is hauling horses. I have a standard bumper pull trailer and plan to get a gooseneck in the future. What are some appropriate and safe size options? Thanks! Also, I have a friend selling 20 inch wheels on 35x12.5r20 with a 8x6.5 lug pattern....would this work? Thanks!!
  19. Thought it would be cool to start a thread for lifted trucks on 18s instead of 20s. So post some pics if you got them. Thanks
  20. Putting a 6 inch lift and 35's on my truck. I notice it says you need the hypertech programmer to calibrate the tires for larger size. A buddy of mine Recently put at 7.5 inch kit with 325/65/20 on his truck without the programmer and every time he takes a corner, His traction control goes off and doesn't let him accelerate because it senses he's slipping. Does the programmer fix this as well? and does anyone know what size tires you can go up to without needing the programmer?
  21. Well the time has come and I have decided to lift my truck 2014 GMC Sierra Sle z71. I am sold on the bds kits but I do not know whether to get the 6in or the 4 in kit. The tires I would like to get are 35 in toyo at2 with 20in fuel hostages. But I am also stuck on deciding whether to get 35s or 33s I really do not want to have to do any trimming. I am going to get the fox shocks in the rear with the leaf spring option as well. So the main questions I have are 1.does the lift kit void the warranty? 2.should I go with the 6in or 4in lift kit ? 3.Should I go with 33s or 35s ? 4.Will there be a major change in the accuracy of the speedometer? 5.if there is can you please tell me how to fix that? 6. Can anyone who is running these kits show me pictures? 7. How is the ride after the lift? 8.how much is the change in mph with the 6 and 4 in kits If in the end if I do go with the 6in lift I am going to get 35s regardless I personally do not like the look of having all that lift and small tires. I was debating on 33s if I get the 4 in lift but it can also fit 35s .Im sorry for all the questions but this is the first time I am ever lifting a truck and I would like to do it right . I am open to all opinions and all replies are greatly appreciated
  22. I'd like to start off by thanking you all for stopping by to read this post and helping me out...!!! This summer I plan on throwing a 6 inch lift kit from BDS onto my 2008 Silverado 1500 Ext cab 4x4. Here is a link to the kit: http://bds-suspension.com/product?ma=5&mo=1&ty=1&yr=2007-2013- But before I throw it on, I'd like to know some options I have for locking difs. I plan on running 4.56s or even 4.10 (I still haven't made my mind up yet). I am currently running stock gears which are 3.73 on 33" tires. When I do the lift her, I'd like to run 35s (maybe on 17s or 18s).. haven't decided on that either; don't know which would look better with 35s). Now, my truck has the RPO code that states it has the Eaton G80 Locker. I picked her up in early to mid October of 2014, and since owning the truck I have yet to notice the locker engage. I've been through some deep snow, ice, gravel roads, and some light mud with terrible tires and even then haven't noticed an engagement..? At this point, I'm feeling like I may not actually have a locking dif . So, I start looking briefly at some locking diffs online (one of them was the Detroit Truetrac). But I read somewhere that they don't suggest tires over 33s; reason being that the tire is too big and the locking dif won't engage. Because of that, I'm lost on what locking difs are available/ones I should consider looking into. I don't plan on beating my truck into the ground, nor do I plan on doing extreme off roading/jumping my truck. More like nice casual off-roading with some buddies, going to our fishing/hunting grounds, and exploring new areas. As well as going mudding wherever & whenever we can Appreciate any help any of you can give me. Thanks!
  23. All the years I've been a member here, never understood why the 2000-2006s were not separated from the 2007-2013s. But anyways, been searching through the website which is terrible and comes back with zero results every time, so searched for about 30 minutes using google and 'site:gm-trucks.com _________' with little luck. I hate making a new thread because I know it is somewhere here on the site, but oh well. Friend's 2011 CC 2WD Silverado 1500. He is going to buy my Maxtrac 6" spindle suspension lift, and I am going to a 9" I am trying to find out about him running my used Nitto Terra Grapplers 35x12.50x20 on his factory 20" Texas Edition wheels. These wheels: My knowledge from reading over the years would lead to me to believe that yes, he will need spacers to run factory wheels. However some results I have found (though it was in older 2001, 2003 trucks) was that no, he will not need spacers. Looking for some insight as I dont think he can swing my aftermarket wheels financially, and I'd rather keep them at this time. Thanks boys, Mike
