I have a level though lol. But apparently it seems like I’ll have to save up some money and do a lift. My original plan was a 6” BDS, but I didn’t consider having to regear from my current 3.42s which is obviously much needed for 35s, and off-roading especially. Guess I’ll run the smaller set up until my warranty is up! 


I’d sell it, keep what you’ve got till you can save up for a really good lift. Your suspension is the building block of your whole truck, doesn’t matter how much you put into your wheels but it does when it come to ride quality and performance. You don’t want to get into something for the looks, get into it for the quality, years of worry free driving

Tons of guys go off road with levels and 33s. They perform fine on the normal fire roads etc.. Probably gain close to an inch in ground clearance over stock tires, and will most likely rub the felt liner in off camber turns/bumps

I offroad on a suspension level and 33x12.50r22's. Had to modify the rear fender wells. Works better than I could have expected. I just watch out for any serious rocks. In soft terrain it's a non issue. That said 20's would have been fine, it really depends on driver skill and awareness. If you don't want to worry get 18's

 

Actually had it in the dunes last weekend without the tires aired down and it still did pretty well, hardpacked dirt - no problem.

Don’t know what kind of off-roading you’re lookin at doin but this is leveled with 33s and 20x10s. Did just fine and is my daily. Haven’t replaced anything after that trip, all still tight as can be. 2.5” eBay kit with 33x12.5 Yokohama g003s MTs and 5100s all around.
