Here is mine with a 3/5 and KMC 20's...

I'm not sure about the backspacing of the centerlines, but your should be okay with a 275/45 if you have correct backspacing...You might need to roll the inner fenders on the rear and will definately need to use a C-notch. I have added Airlift helper bags to help smooth out the rear's ride. Heck...If you can wait to do your drop til this summer my 3" coils will be up for sale when I go with 4" DJM Lca's up front...FYI.

You should be ok. If I were you I would get the correct backspacing on the wheel to tuck. That way you can even go 4/6 with 275/45/R20.

When you get the coddingtons make sure you get 20x8 with 5.5" of backspacing OR 20x8.5 with 6" of backspacing. You will have no problems with the bigger tires on these and can even go down to a 4/6 later on if you want and not have to buy new tires :head:

Mine's a 3/5 and I run 275/45/20's without a problem. You don't have to notch it if you don't want to but it would ride better if you did. Mine will bottom out every now and then. I'm dropping the rear to a 7" this weekend cause a 3/5 isn't perfectly level. Click my sig for some pics.

okla what happened to your air dam?
That pic was while the airdam and mirror caps were at the bodyshop getting painted....a word to the wise...don't have your factory airdamn sanded and painted....the paint will chip and it looks like shit. I'm planning on getting another airdam soon to replace the painted one...just don't have any current pics of the truck with the painted airdam and denali lights yet.

thanks for your info guys - I think I'm gonna investigate with the 2/4" also - someone told me I'd need a c notch with a 2/4", is this true?

You'll be fine with a 2/4 and no notch.
