    Sup guys, so I am new to the 4x4 world, only been a lowered truck guy before now. So I have a 16 4x4, and plans so far are just a level and bigger tires and spacers possibly on the factory 20s. I was going to go with the top gun 2.5, but for tires should I rock a 33 or 35? Also, if I wanted the tires to sit more flush would y'all run a 2 inch spacer? Thanks!

    I would stick with 33s. It'll look good and you probably won't have to trim.

    stick with 33s for sure, 35s will be stuffed and rub.

    He's got a crew cab short bed. Your buddy has a double cab, right?

    Cool thanks guys, 33s I'll go with for sure! Would a two inch wheel spacers be overkill? Just figured it would help the stance a bit

    TGC is a great kit, I've installed them before, you'll be happy with it

    2in will be more than flush. I'd go for 1.5" if your looking for a flush look on stock wheels


    live from the gutter trash.

    For my 2.5 inch leveling kit, is top or bottom of strut spacer better? Or a combo of both?

    Doesn't really matter tbh. Both work the same way, they just install differently

    haha will do soon! i posted some in the other thread but it some how was deleted? Anyway I ended up getting 275/65/20 Mickey thompson ATZ p3 (measures out to like a 34.3) and a motofab 2.5 leveling kit. Getting the tint done this saturday and throwing the level kit on. Im just gonna do it myself, i took sat off as most shops want like freaking 400 bucks to do it. My tires come in next week but i have an apt to get them put on the 19th bc of my work schedule! Should look pretty sweet when done.
