Hey guys I have a 06 Silverado 1500. Just added the readylift torsion keys with 3 inch blocks in the rear. Sits fine right now with my BFG Destination AT's(whcih run kinda small and skinny but I just ordered Mickey Thompson Baja Claws 33/12.5/17's and was wondering if I was to add a 3 inch body if the tires would look to small? Any of you guys run this and have pics? I can't find this set-up anywhere on here...Thanks Guys

Shouldnt be horrible. I belive some tires that measured out to 34" or maybe even 35" would fill up your wheel well better but its all up to how you like it.

If your "Ready Lift" consists of different keys, and you got 3" out of it, start saving for front end parts. This method of 6" on 33s is not only going to look goofy to some, but its also gonna be pure hell on your front end. Happy cranking. :bowtie:

Gmc00z. I have pro comp wheels so that will help?.

CowboyKyle. Well I didn't get 3 inches in the front with the ready lift. I actually got 2 and half in the front. Than the 3 inch body would only really lift the front 5 and half inches, than it would be 6 inches in the rear.

If you feel you MUST lift to run the 33s, set your suspension 100% stock, front to back, and run ONLY the body lift.
