2019 GMC 2500HD Denali - Reverse Level

Debating going from my second F250 to a GMC Duramax. The Ford's allow a much bigger tire. I DON'T want to do a front level kit and have been looking into a reverse level to maintain factory ride while taking most of the rake out. I want to keep the stock Denali 20 inch rims. I'm wanting to put the Nitto Ridge Grappler on in lieu of stock tire.

Have read a bunch of threads and also checked the sticky at beginning of this section (doesn't list 2019 models)

Can I do 295/60/20 (33.94 high and 11.77 wide) or will I have to live with 275/65/20 ( 34.09 tall and 10.98 wide)

On my 2016 I am running a reverse level with 2" rear drop and the front keys turned ever so slightly to be completely level and I'm running 35x12.50 on OEM wheels. You will have minimal rubbing at full lock on the frame. My buddy is running 35x11.50r20 and has zero rub on his 2019.

Here's mine with John C drop shackles which are a 1.4" drop and don't require any trimming under the box. 285/75R18 Toyo RTs which are 34.8" x 11.3" (almost identical to a 35/11.50R20). No rubbing and the truck has 1/4" rake after I cranked the front bars just a bit. Rides great. Angle of the pic is a little deceiving.

Does your buddy have any cranks on the TB or stock?

How far/much did you crank your TB to get 12.50's on?

My buddy with the 19 has Mcghaughy drop shackle set at 1" drop in the rear and the T bars cranked to match with 35x11.50 with no rub.

I have a mcghaughys drop shackle set at 2" drop with barely cranked T bars. Only rubbing i have is at full lock on the frame with 12.50. I do have some trimming done from my old tire n wheel set up i was running. I was running -25 offset 22x10 with 31.6x12.2 tires. I trimmed the rolled part of the bumper about 1" up from bottom. Trimmed the plastic valance in front. Cut the bottom part of the fender trim from the bottom bolt inward and zip tied to the front fender liner forward. When i first got the truck i ran a 1" drop with the t bars cranked to match with 35x12.50 and still only had run on the frame at full lock.

After my buddy got the 11.50 he said he wished he woulda went with the 12.5 since they look a lil "meatier" and not so narrow.

Once these tires wear out im debating doing 37s with the room i have or at least 325/60r20

Don't want to crank the TB's...Do I need to drop to 295/65/20 or can I make the 35x11.5x20 work with minor trimming?

There is a thread on here where a guy is running 35x12.50 on a stock truck with no rub on the body. Let me see if i can find it. I beleive him, I just never had my truck lowered on 35s before i did the trimming.
