Hey guys, finally springtime is here (at least here in CT). So, Im doing what ive been saying I was going to do for months. That is :
3inch AS Front Leveling Kit
3inch Rear Blocks (replacing stock blocks)
2inch AS Rear AAL
Now the predicament becomes wheels and tires. BFG All terrains or BFG Mud Terrains, depending on what rims i land on. I really like the four wheels below(my picture posting skills arnt very good), but id like anybodys input or really would like to see if anyone has a truck with these wheels. Anyone have a these rims?? id appreciate it.
All Terrains 285/65/20E (34.7)
All Terrains 325/65/18E (34.6)
Mud Terrains 35/12.5/18 D (34.8)

just a quick note though. it sounds like you are shooting for +3" of rear height (3" block + 2" AAL)...that is kinda overkill.
the rear 4x4 suspension will fit 35" tires perfectly fine when stock. At most, I suggest you do the AAL...or...the 3" block. The rear shocks will only spread so far, and I think you will be running a real risk of over-extending the shock if the axle were to be unsprung weight.
i also like the moto metal wheel very nice i am waiting on a set of vision wheels (375 warriors) great price @ www.discounttiredirect.com check prices for your wheel choices (call they can discount prices to make a wheel and tire combo sale) i got wheels 17s, tires 33s, lug nuts, for $1300. even mounted and balanced for free and shipped for free (only downer for my wheels, is backordered but they should ship soon)
mwvdub, you wouldnt happen to have a full picture of your pickup would you? I am real curious how it looks from the side. Also, have you noticed any power, mpg loss from those tires. And any road noise with those as well?
I bought the truck with the wheel and tire package already on but they were brand new. The truck was a repo and the credit union bought the wheels and tires to help sell the truck faster. On the first tank I got right at 13 in a little city and a 200 mile interstate straight into a 30 mph wind. On the last tank I got almost 14 in all city driving. The tires are noisy as heck on the street.
I like the look of that. My problem is I would have to see the wheels/tires that I want on an f150 first. I am looking at the Dick Cepek DC-1. I wish there was a decent aplicator on the internet or a shop that would let me just try them on all day! :P
