I Have Had This O5 LLY Since Spring & Have Put 20k On It So Far. Because Of Necesity, I Do Alot Of Off Roading But I Am Tired Of Draging Bottom So Much. I Would Like To Get A Little More Clearence. I Still Have The 245's On It But I Think I'm Will Only Upgrade To 265. Turn The Bars Only? Sugestions. Great-fun Truck To Drive.
No problem man. That kit fits 285's but if you're gonna put a lift on might as well go ahead and do it right. It's a shame you can't get a solid front axle like in a dodge or ford. So much easier to lift with solid.
I tow a 5th wheel trailer and I wanted to run 33" tires and I did not want to go 4'' or 6'' just because of the cost and it would be too high to tow my trailer. I ended up using the 2"-3" Truxxx kit for the front with a 1" block kit for the rear and I was able to put the 285's on my truck with out the rub. Th kit cost was $287.00 plus an alignment $49.95.
yeah it knocks it out of alignment when you crank them up but all you have to do is go and have it re-aligned. but yes when it is out of alignment the tires wear about twice as fast.. I know from experience i learned the hard way
