hey guys, ive been reading post on the offroad section for a while now and have come up with what i want to do, i just need the okay that it will work before i place orders. i plan on going with MarkMc lift, Zone body lift, 1.5" wheelspacers and 285/70/17 BFG MT Km2. I know i will have to cut/hammer to make the tires fit, not a problem. the main thing im worried about is running those tires on stock 17 inch LT rim, are the too wide or will they be okay with stock rims and wheelspacers? thanks adam.

Not to sure about your tire and wheel package question,,should work ok..
There shouldnt be a whole lot of hammering and cutting to fit.
Only a little plastic inner fender trimming for 305/60s km2s

I say Go For It :laugh:

I'm guessing the Stocker 17" Rims are too narrow to handle 285s... tire specs show they are good for 7.5-9" rims though. What width are the stockers?
I was kinda wondering that also.
To bad the spacer guys couldnt come up with an
adapter with multi pattern choices on the same spacer.
That way we could upgrade to different bolt pattern rims
without buying new spacers..:coffee

That'd be a nice thought Mark, but wouldn't adding multiple options to a single spacer weaken the spacer itself? I know I wouldn't want to use spacers with multiple holes or even slots in them... just my :m2:

thats my concern, i think stocks are 7 inch wide, i think. even though tire specs call for 7.5-9" could a 7" work if thats even what a stock rims is..?

To get 2" of lift out of an OUTSIDE the spring spacer will require the spacer to be 1.3" tall. Since BDS, Mark, and I have independently agreed that 1/2" is the thickest spacer that we consider safe in that area, due to upper ball joint stress at full extension, I think we need more dialog with the Ready Lift engineers to see why they think their spacer is safe for functional offroading that might involve full extension of the strut.

I do agree with their endorsement of Fred Goeske, though. :thumbsup:
