Can I get a 2" lift in the front by just turning the T-Bars? I'm going to purchase some Vision Type 81 19.5 Wheels and I would like to either get the 245/70R/19.5 or 265/70R/19.5 tires. Rickson reccomends 225/70R/19.5 but I don't think that is enough tire.

When cranking my T-Bars can I measure the wheel well?

Absolutely.

Mine are cranked about 9 turns. Thats enough to raise the front end up over 2" and run 16x8 wheels with 285's with no rubbing.

So are the Rickson 265/70R/19.5 the same size as your wheels?

my girlfriends dad has 245/70/19.5 on his 3500 SRW and has done no cranking and no trimming to fit them and has no rubbing. i think with some cranking and trimming the 265s will work.

Well I'm still not sure if I should attempt the 265/70R/19.5 Unless I can get Les Schwab to mount one on the Vision Type 81 wheel and see how it fits. :rolleyes:

The 245/70R/19.5 is something I can live with too. I would imagine these tires will last a very long time.

Tomorrow I will have to see what Les Schwabs has for tires. I want something that is going to give me a good ride, not so much for hauling.

I see Bilstein Shocks in my near future. No mas Ranchos......:thankyou2

the 245s are plenty tall but they are super narrow and look like one of those railroad service trucks.
