    Default New Truck (to me), a Few Questions????

    So, first time post.

    And I just bought the cleanest 07 Serria 1500 4x4 crew cab I've ever seen. She's red, slick as new and not a scratch on her. She has 36,000 miles and drives like new. I'm very proud of her. Also got what I thought was a heck-of-a deal.

    Only problem is: She looks like my Grandpa's truck, sissy tires (17") and so low to the ground, it would drag or high center over anything. I don't want a lift or anything radical, just a little larger tire on stock rims and meybe a front end lift.

    What's the largest tires I can put on the stock rim without a lift?? And do they make a front only lift, meybe just a 1.5" lift??

    Sorry, I know this info is available with a few hours searching, but my computer is on the blitz and soooo slooooow, I would never be able to do it...

    Thanks for any info

    new body style? ... if it is then get a leveling kit and you can go 33x12.5 on stock wheels. look at my truck to get an idea ... thats what i am running accept i have slightly larger tires.

    Cool

    Leveling kit seems like what you are looking for and i would guess probably 31's maybe 33's
