what size tires? if your running rubber bands....and with 26's your kinda stuck with em, you should be fine anything under 32" tall should clear depending on the width of the rire03 Silverado 1500

Ready Lift. Best leveling kit out there.
Also, look at upgrading the braking system. Also, expect to spend a lot of money at your local Service Department or Repair Shop replacing IFS parts due to the stress on your front end.

The rim diameter has no impact on the issues in this discussion - clearance, brakes, suspension components.
Tire width/diameter do though...When you hear hoofbeats, look for horses not zebras.

With a 26 inch comes comes a certain tire diameter implied. Seems like 305/30s are a fairly common size for 26s, and that puts you at around 33.2 inches worth of tire, so yes you will have issues with fitment. But why bother lifting it? If you are throwing 26s on it, the point of the truck is to look more street-style right, and lifting it...just seems like its going to look terrible. Put 22s on and drop it, will fill the fender wells better and be a lot cheaper too.

Does anyone have a weight for a typical 26" rim?

Using this as an example, close to 50 pounds. Now add a tire, and air pressure in that. Heavy.
20's seem to be about 35lbs.
