Hey guys,

I just picked up an 05 crew, it has a 6 inch fabtech on it.

Fabtech says they recommend 4 5/8'' backspacing.

What is the stock backspacing?

Does anyone one have pics of fabtech lifts with different backspaced wheels...Im looking to probably run 33's.

Any pictures and recommendations would be great...whether they be aftermarket or stock (they claim you can run stock wheels with this lift)

This is how the truck sits currently, with 325 65r18 open countrys on unknown backspaced sh*t wheels

It does say you can run stock wheels but i think it has to be with stock tires also.

Not sure about the tires, I know you can run stock wheels with the fabtech kit. I have it on my 02 tahoe, but Ive got 37's and 24's now. I had 17's on there and a et of 20's with a body lift and have been running 37's. The 24's are almost a 38.

on my fabtech kit, i was running a 8.5" wheel with +10 offset. which is something like 5.1 backspacing. you can run stock rims but bigger tires will rub the upper control arm, you will need a spacer on it
