    Default pics of the new lift, wheels/tires

    Got the new Rancho 4" lift and 20x10 Chrome Rockstars and 305/55/20 BFG Mud Terrains put on last week. The rancho lift actually lifted the truck about 5" on the stock wheels/tires, so it's a little taller than advertised. Original plan was for 35" Nitto Trail Grapplers due to the fact that rancho says a 35" tire will "easily fit" but the backspacing options on the chrome rockstars were pretty limited, and the 35s weren't even close to fitting. Probably would have with the proper backspacing/offset though. Either way, the BFGs measure about 33.5" and I'm pretty happy with them. Still required a little fender well liner trimming and I trimmed a little off the front air dam, but I'm thinking of taking it off altogether. And if anyone wants those Nittos, they're posted in the classifieds.

    The Rockstars look so much better in chrome!! The truck looks fantastic, the chrome really compliments the color well. But I'm a chrome fan so I guess my opinion is a little slanted! I also think that the tires are sized correctly, they don't look "stuffed" . Great job!

    I like the ride quality of the Rancho lift, and I also like the quality of the parts -- nicer powder coating than what I've seen on some other lifts. And yeah, call Rancho to get their exact specs on the wheels/tires and the backspacing and offset that they used to fit a 35, but I do think a 35 will fit. If you wanna do a shipping quote on the tires, they weigh 80# a piece, current zip code is 87106.

    Your truck looks great. I like the rock star wheels in chrome so much better than in black.
