I own a GMC 2005 2500HD and I am looking forward to getting rid of my cookie cutters and put on 33/12.50/16"or17" with custom rims. I was told I need to crank up my T-bars and insert a key. Does anyone have pictures with there torsion bars cranked on larger tires? If so please post pics and any information. Thanks a lot guys.

I didn't crank my T-bars up but I added the Ford T-bar keys. The tires are 285 75 16 ProComps on 16X8 American Racing wheels.

 

I hope the pics help you to see what one looks like with the Ford T-bar keys.

I don't believe you need to run different torsion keys to clear 285s on a HD. I clear them on my 1500 4wd with no problem. See photos in sig. On 1500s at least, you don't need to crank at all to clear them. I did crank my bars up 1" to level the truck a bit.

 

Wider aftermarket rims with different backspacings can cause a problem. Recommend going with an 8" wide rim (not a 10").

Not trying to thread jack but Endo.... where did you get your headlights (with the clear corners)?

 

 

 

 

I modified my stock headlights. To do this you have to remove the lens from the headlight and extract the amber reflector. There is an adhesive that must be removed in order to do this. I used heat (baking htem in oven for 5 minutes at 150-200 degrees) to soften the adhesive and a thin putty knife. It's a lot of work..probably takes 3 hours to do. You have to be careful and take it easy...don't break the tabs on the headlights or the lenses themselves. Once you're done, silicone the lights back together. (Be certain to remove all fingerprints before putting them back together....make sure you do it in bright light so that you can see any such fingerprints). Been running them for a year and have had no problems with fogging. (Also, of course, remove the bulbs before doing this!)
