glad to hear it rides good. that's my one reason for not having a leveling kit yet, I don't want to mess with the good ride.

I'll be sure to let you know if I feel the same after a thousand miles with it

I could not be happier. The ride quality is fantastic and I have the bigger tires and wheels on it now. Still drives great. I'm sure you'll like them

im new to this so im sure im not posting in the right spot as to where i should. BUT, im losing patience tring to figure out what i need to get my truck to look how i want.
NOW:
2016 laramie crew cab 4x4 w/ 275/60R20

TO BE DONE:
Bilstein RHA
18x10 -24 offset
270(or 275) /70

Will this work.? The goal is to level the truck while giving it a wider stance. maybe have the tire stick out from fender 1" or so. Also,i do not want any rubbing wheni turn the wheel.
Thanks

That should work fine man. I'm running the 20x10 with -24 offset on my 5100s with no problems at all. Ride is great and truck looks mean. The -24 will give you that stance too. The only problem you'll have with the setup is not enough room in the truck for the all the ladies it'll be getting you

That's how much you'll be looking at with -24

Tires extending beyond fenders are unlawful for road use. So to be legal, you will have to add fender extensions. Or, you can press your luck with the cops.

That's exactly the look I'm going for. What tire size are you running? (thought I seen it before but now I can't find it). Truck looks good by the way.

That's why you put the stock ones on when you get it inspected. ;) Or just tell your mechanic "you don't see this". Haha. The cops in my area got bigger fish to fry. I mean sticking out 5 inches is a little different but most the cops have lifted trucks themselves so it's all good.

This is nothing compared to this crap:

I have a feeling officers would be drawn more to this, than a few inches like shown above.

305/50r20 cooper h/t plus tire. Highly recommend. Looks aggressive enough to go with the stance but rides nice and no noise
