Pics needed PYOs on lifted trucks w/ 35s

Well I said when I bought this truck that I wasn't gonna lift it or anything or put wheels on it and all that get up until Friday.. We had a '05 duramax traded in with blown headgaskets and they want to fix it. Long story short the truck has a 6" Fabtech kit that looks fairly new and my boss wants the truck stock and told me I could have the lift if I took it off on my own time So, I figured I'd go ahead and put the lift on my truck but I don't think I'm gonna put wheels and tires on it just yet. Does any have any pics of lifted old body (01-07) with stockers and 35s? With winter being here I figured I'd just try to find some 35s and rock them for a little while but I don't know how I'll like it. I've thought about just putting a 1" or 2" block in it and leaving the torsion bars all the way down, but I'm just not sure yet. I wanna see what ya got, thanks in advance!

I will be curious what others say but I was told just this last week that stock tires wouldn't work on a lift. It needs more/less offset or something to that affect.

I know for a fact that PYOs won't work on a Fabtech, maybe other lifts, but the fabtech knuckles (spindles) hit my 285/75s and dug in the sidewall about an inch, you might be able to run a spacer..

What brand of lift kit is it? The kits all have instructions on wheel requirements. For sure some, maybe all, require more positive offset then stock.

You need different rims for quite a few reasons. The first being aesthetics, the rims can't safely run a tire wider then a 265 and you will want a wider tire.

Also most lift kits will not work with a PYO, you will need to invest in aftermarket rims.

My suggestion is to do some more research and start searching Craigslist for rims, you can likely pick something up fairly cheap.

Also, have you ever removed a lift or researched it much?

I guess I had just assumed that they would work since they worked fine with my Zone lift, which was also a knuckle lift.. The truck has some fugly black 16x8 moto metals 951s on it now with little 265s on it, I guess I'll just swap my 285s onto those wheels for the time being until I decide what I want.

I've installed and swapped a few lifts over the years, and done most of them on jackstands. Which wont be the case here since I'll be doing it at the shop with the two trucks side by side on post lifts so it won't be too big of a pain. The stuff that requires modification when installing a lift I just plan on swapping like the front diff and tcase cross member so I don't have to drill mine.
