Anyway, just ordered a 2003 GMC 2500 HD 4X4 and the stock wheels/tires belong on a Yugo. Anyone know a web site (or off the top of your head) that explains max tire sizes that can fit in the wheel well without a lift?
More importantly, I need pics of 2500's with different tire and lift sizes. I dont mind lifting it, but I'd rather spend the money on someting that starts with an "N" and ends with an "EW WR450"
I figure some of you guys have bigger trucks and have been down this road before. Someone told me that I could fit 35's on the truck without the lift, but that it might look a litle full.
Any pics, web sites and/or ideas would be great.
Someone throw me a little love, I only have a couple of months to figure this out. TT is for Truck Talk right???
Thanks tons in advance, Bud

Another thing I considered when I was going to lift my truck was loading bikes in that high monster truck is not going to be fun.
You will need at least an 8 foot ramp. That is why I left my truck stock, so it's easier to load because a lot of times I am doing it myself.

Or do you trailer?

I drive a '00 Dodge 2500 4wd with 315/75R16 tires - probably the tallest non-lifted truck/tire combo out there. The top of the bed is ~chest high on me, I'm 6'4". I have an 8ft alum ramp and a two step step-ladder - I load our bikes by myself w/o any problems.

As to the idea of raising the front, I thing the "saggy ass" look isn't for me. But, if I was to raise the torsion bars a bit, would that affect the ride at all. Would the ride be more harsh?
I like the heat gun trick, I think I'll try that.

I can't imagine the warranty covering an alignment since it will be pretty obvious that the front end has been cranked up. I would imagine that a dealer mechanic would put the ride height back to stock as part of the alignment.....
