So now you want to lower your truck again? I say keep the lift on and get big 20's, like 34's (275/65/20...F250 size)

Then again I know of all the problems you had with that "wonderful" :rolleyes: strut spacer lift... (me too.. rode like sh__)

Shame someone doesn't make a real lift kit for our vehicles, until then, mine will be stock height.

I currently run a 285/35/22, but previously ran a 265/35/22. Mine rubs in the back if I hit a big bump or something, but is lowered on Belltech springs and has a few hundred pounds of stereo equipment in the back, so my gap between the top of the tire and the fender is less than two inches on all four corners. I don't think I could safely fit anything bigger at all without ditching these springs.

please post a pic of your truck I would love to see in in my thread about 22's

thank you very much wish everyone was this explanatory
 












I really don't have any recent pics. There are some older ones floating around here though.

how much is your lowered

just tryn to see the bigest tire i can get with my lift
 






The springs were supposed to lowere it around 2.5", I think. They've been on there for a while and with the extra weight, it's definitely lower than that.

I cannot slide two fingers between my tire and my fender. Granted, I do have huge fingers. lol
