Stock With Big Meat Pics!

Post your pics!!

Going to be putting on my 2.5 inch level this weekend, would be nice to have a thread to show trucks with stock rims and larger tires. If your truck is level, please post the specs. It seems everyone has black rims or a huge lift, but in my opinion these trucks look best with a level and meat on the stock rims! Any pics would be appreciated!

Kit I ordered:

Although I may not need an adjustable track bar or relocation bracket, i chose this kit because it has the relocation bracket and is still fairly easy on the wallet.

Heres my truck pre 2.5" level.

Gotta say I agree oem wheels with oversized tires look the best.

Tires are 35/11.50/20. sorry I don't have specs on my level kit. It took me up 3" and it's just strut spacers that the dealership put on when I bought it. I have been wondering if any other spacers or track bar are needed as most of the new kits have them. truck rides well enough though and the axle seems centered.

the axle wont be centered if the front was raised 3in. look down each side and you can see it poking out more than the other. at top of tire can also probly measure from frame rail to edge of tire to get a idea how pulled over it is

I would like to be able to bring the front up 2-3 inches and still have 1 inch of rake as I'm adding a camp and I think the added weight may have the truck squatting a bit if I only level. Am I crazy? Would the added weight of a cap bring the truck down at all? Its going to be a basic hood level cap, not toting tools or anything heavy around

Just leveled mine and put the Fox 2.5's on. The ride is absolutely amazing.

Some Carli parts in there, gonna try some custom triple rate 700lb eibach springs my off-road buddies are testing out for super dutys. If they don't work out I'll grab some Carli coils whenever they're available.
