I honestly did not think it would fit, but it somehow does. I didn't do anything besides bolt them up and it barely rubs at full lock in reverse if im on a hill. I love the stance it has now. If I remember correctly my replicas are 20x9 with a +20 offset, so with 2" spacers whats that come out to be in a rim? like a 20x10 with a 0 offset? Either way, the pictures don't do it justice and i'll take some better pictures of looking down the side today. Just wanted to post this here because im sure a lot of people want to or eventually will want to see how it looks. All I have done is the norcal fender mod that I did about a year and a half ago, tires are 35x12.50 mud grapplers with the 3.5" RC.

Re: GMC AT reps with 2" spacers and 35s on 3.5" RC

How in the world do you clear that, looks good but I am suprised.


+20mm minus 50.8mm ( 2" equals 50.8 mm) gives you a -30.8 offset. I went to ccwheel.com and they have a backspace calc and it gives me a backspacing of 3.784" on a 20x9 wheel with -30.8 offset. Holy mother , I'm thinking my cakcs are off so someone please check me.

Are mud grapplers a requirement in the south? :mad: it looks good though.

Trucks look great dude. Ive been wondering if i will clear 35s on a 18x9 with rc 2.5 and 1.5 BL? I've read the "what hits what fits" thread over and over and nada.
This may change my thinking to go to 20s

Looks good but I wouldn't run that 3.5 rc if u gave it to me
I really want a FTS, but then i'll want x14s and i'm 2wd so I will run through hubs...so i'm trying to make myself stick to this height so I don't spend any more money.

And don't get me wrong, it does require metal trimming/bending (norcal fender mod) to make this work

If you hadnt ran 2" wheel spacers, would you still had to trim?

The 2" spacers only offset the reduced track width cause from xtreeem anglez, so it pretty much brings it a little over stock.

It does look good but badddd choice on the 3.5, I would look into other options.
Truck has 110K on it and has had the 3.5" on it for probably 25k and had a 2.5" level on it for 30K before that. All front end parts are still tight, although the RC control arms have MOOG joints in them. Truck has also been on 35s for 40K miles or more. But I do want to just do spindles and put the 2.5" back on and put a 4" block in the rear. Will probably do that this summer. I just regeared and tuned so i'm letting the truck fund go back up

Looks great!! More pics!!

Happy with the 4.56's? Is it the right gear for you? Or do you wish you picked a different ratio?

I love the gears and tune I have. I pull probably 4-5K lbs every weekend for atleast a hundred miles and it will hold 6th gear while the cruise is set on 70, unless it is a very steep hill, it doesn't ever leave 6th gear and I get about 13mpg pulling 5k pounds running 70

Start saving your money now for ball joint and tie rods.

My 3.5" kit ate mine in 13k miles.
guess I got lucky. My tie rods and all my ball joints are still tight with 110K miles, except the upper balljoints are moog that came in the RC control arms.
