lift for 2wd 2500HD


Recommended Posts

Guess I should have searched before posting this. Looks like there are quite a few people on here running the 285/75-16's with no lift at all and only minimum trimming. I would imagine that 295/75-16's or 305/70-16's should not be a problem then with a small amount of cranking on the torsion bar, right?

Fabtech has a 6" lift for your 2wd HD.  The description says you can clear 315/75-16 or 315/70-17 on 4 5/8" offset wheels.

 

FWIW: there are 2wd offroad trucks, does sport truck only mean those sparkin asphalt

 

 

 

 

As much as I would love a 6" lift on my truck, I have way too many other priorities to put that much money into it right now. I'd like to run the tallest tires that I can fit without having to purchase any sort of aftermarket kit. I'm willing to crank the torsion bars a bit and do minor trimming and thats about it. It looks like I'll be doing a set of 295/75-16's on 16"x8" alloys. Should give it a nice look without costing too much.

IMHO, not to be rude, but the intent of this section is for 2wd and sport truck, which generally means trucks modified for use on the street. Eg. lowering, handling. The other section is 4wd and offroad, which would mean lifting and adding larger offroad tires.

 

I am sure that there are not too many guys talking about lowering their 4wd trucks and adding 35 series tires in the 4wd & offroad section.

 

Maybe a moderator should give his opinion on the different sections.

Seeing as I am new here I'm not going to go out of my way to piss anybody off, but the section said 2wd so I put my post there. If a moderator wants to move it that is fine with me. It said right in the title that my post was about "lift for 2wd 2500HD". If it was that bothersome to you, you could have just ignored it and moved along rather than wasting your time and mine with posts that are not helpful in any way.

when I put my 285/60/18's on Discount mounted them and we moved the tire side to side and check to make sure that nothing would rub. Talk to them and ask if you have issues if they will let you put a slightly smaller tire on. I bet they will.

Honestly I think this forum should be modified for lowering/handling purposes only and the off road forum modified to bit more all inclusive.  It leaves us 2WD off roaders in the dark as to where to post IMO. :)

 

 

 

 

I agree, I think if this forum was labeled "lowering/handling" or something along those lines and the offroad forum was divided up into two forums for "2wd offroad" and "4wd offroad" their would be alot less confusion on where to post.
