Trimming question

    I recently put a 2.5 leveling kit on my 08 silverado. I am wanting to put 295/70/17 Nitto terra grapplers on, and was wondering if I am going to have to do some trimming on the plastic for these tires?? I am open to alittle trimming but nothing major. Any help would be appreciated!!

    I know 285s fit with no problem but you might need to do some minor plastic trimming for 295's.

    I ran the ReadyLift 2.25 which gave 2.5 of lift with 295/70r17 trail grapps and they rubbed on the sway bar and I had to cut a bunch of plastic. If you want pics of what that size looks like with level kit just let me know and I will post some up.

    Here is one with the factory rear block

    Wish I would have done it sooner. It is amazing what you can see with them and turn signal lights were just that much more of a bonus.

    That sounds great. how much did you end up buying them for?

    Got them from a Chevy dealership and they were around 400. I believe you can get kool vues for half that.
