    I leveled my 2wd with RC coils, love the result and the truck drives fantastic.I then went to a 275/65/20 tire, truck still drives great, my question is would a change in shocks give me just a bit more height? with the larger tires it just looks like there should be a bit more space between the tires and fenders.I'm not looking to do anything drastic, as I said it drives great as is, here is a pic for reference.

    Look into bilstein 5100. They are adjustable shocks. Less than $100 per side on Amazon.

    Can’t answer your question, but dude the black-n-silver with the graphics and the balls to go raised white letters out looks awesome !!! Nicely done ... Wish I could find some 35 x 12.50’s with RWL

    Truck looks great!......I would leave it

    I think if you go higher you'll lose ride quality unless you change to a spindle lift.....just my opinion...

    Thanks, I don't want to do anything drastic, it really does drive great, I was hoping better shocks would give me just a bit more.

    Thanks, I used the RC level coil because I wanted to avoid spacers, but a rear spacer is a different deal correct? can you be more specific on what this would take? This is a little out of my territory.
