Would like to know what are my chances of clearing a 36x15.50 tire on a 20x12 rim on only a 6" fabtech lift on a 2003 2500hd crew cab short bed 4x4? anybody running somthing similar to this setup with only a 6" lift? let me know, thanks...

I would bet you would be fine, might rub on full crank and like a drive way, but just trim the bumper a little and you should be good if that.

Gonna rub. Height is not an issue...it's the width that will kill the deal. That's an extremely wide tire, not to mention the extra weight and the fact that many tire shops won't touch 12" wide wheels when you need maintenance, rotation, balance, etc..

Just my $.02.

The Fabtech kit increases the already wider HD front track, add into the fact that you want 15.5" wide tires and 12" wide wheels.... HELL NO!

I completely agree with this man! Way too wide of a tire on a "knuckle" lift kit.

A couple of my friends have half tons with 36x15.50s but they both have 6" Fabechs cranked and 3 inch bl's and they rub.

Right. My 1/2 ton rubs on a 1350 tire on a 10" wheel (sportin' the Fabtech) cranked to ~8" in front.

I just got some 36x15.50's on my 1500 and they rub at full lock. The width of the tire wont affect anything, its the 12" wheel that puts more leverage on the ball joints and such. But I would think you should be fine w/ the 2500, it might rub, but not as bad as a 1500.

johnnyvegas66 has 36x15.5 MTZs on his 2500HD. He has the 7-9 cognito cranked to 8ish and he still rubs offroad with 18x10s. On my half ton, i had 6" susp. 3" body, cut the fenders, and still rubbed. And that's with 18x10s.
You're gonna need more lift for those tires.

thats because your tires arent 15.5 inches wide on 12 inch wheels

i think it will rub being that wide without major trimming. 13.50 would pobably work with slight trim since it's a hd
