First off, does it look like my truck has been lifted at all in the front? The back looks to have the factory cast steel blocks, but it's a bit higher in the front then the back. This picture is with 285's on it.

What I want to do is put either Silverado SS or Tahoe 20's on it, with 305/50/20 Nitto Terra Grapplers (I think that's what they're called)

Opinions on how it'd look? Going to need another inch or so of lift maybe?
Anyone done or seen this, pics?

If the front is higher than the rear and it's still got the factory blocks then it's been cranked up. 305/50s will fit fine on it, maybe even a 305/55. I've seen a couple of trucks w/ that combo..I think Steven on here ran the 305/50s on his Z71. Looks pretty good, just not alot of sidewall with that setup. If you're going for the "off-road" look, I'd do 18s with the 325/60/18 Nitto TGs...they fill out the wells nicely, JMO.

I ran Toyo Open Country AT 305/50 20's on mine with 20x9's without any rubbing at all and no crank of the TB's

Do you have pictures of it Josh? I'd really like to see how much sidewall is there.

I am not really going for function... I freak if I have to drive it on gravel roads (you could say I'm a pavement warrior I guess) I just fell in love with the mean look of my brother's duramax truck with 33's and thought it'd look good. On the flip side, I hate most aftermarket wheels, so I figured a factory 20" wheel would look good. Otherwise I'll keep the stock wheels, as I like the look of them also.

Not to hijack the thread, but what's the tallest tire you can go with the stock keys cranked with stock 16" rims? Thanks.

stock rims and fully cranked people have sqweezed 35s on, but thats a really skinny tire, and there will be some rubbage.

If its a 4x4 with stock blocks and ford keys... 315's or 35's.... yout then trim the inner plastic fender so it wont rub.

Its probably not much help, but I figured I post up anyway. My wife and I have a 01' Tahoe that when we bought I thought I was gonna run some BFG A/T 285/75/16's on. I cranked the factory keys up to sit level. Then we changed our mind and decided to run some chrome SS 20's. I picked up a set of genuine SS's off ebay and put them on the Tahoe. I'm running 275/55/20's which is the stock size tire for those wheels. But, with the Tahoe cranked up I wouldn't want them any shorter unless I dropped it some. The 275/55/20's measure 32" tall. Now your talking about running a wider, probably more aggressive tire too. But anyway, here it is:
