guys with 2.5" front and 5" blocks rear...

I am debating on getting a set of 5" rear blocks for the rear of the truck when I install my 2.5" front spacers. Can anyone please get me a good side on shot of the truck and measure from the fender lip to the center of wheel for me? A measurement to the ground would be good if you are running 35/12.50/20's also. I want the truck to look level or a little higher in the rear instead of being level and looking like the rear is lower.

We recently did a truck with that exact same combo, below are pics. Sorry, we dont have measurements. The guy pulls a decent sized camper and wanted the truck to sit level when hes hooked up, it worked perfectly.

Thanks for the pics. It appears that it isnt a huge difference in the way the truck looks with 5" versus 4.5"

If you look at the pictures in my album I have the setup you're referring to. The tires are 325/50/22, so roughly 35 x 13ish, but close to what you're looking at as far as overall size. I went the 5" block route because originally the 3.5" stacked situation that was on there was not nearly sufficient especially if you put some weight in the back as it looked like it leaned a bit to the back unloaded as it was. I have some pictures in my album of me towing some of my strongman tires around and with my adjustable hitch the extra height was no issue. I don't have measurements right now but I'll granb some tomorrow for you. Hope this helps...

It says you have no pictures in your album... Can you post some pics? Measurements would be great also!

If you click on my name then hit view public profile my album shows up on the right side of the page and the pictures are in there. My truck never came out to see light today as the wife and i were busy with a bunch of house stuff so I completely neglected to get the measurements, my apologies. I'll get them tomorrow for sure!

Josh the measurements I got at the front fender from the center of the wheel were approximately 26.5" and at the rear about 28". Hopefully my eyeballs weren't deceiving me and this helps you out a bit. For reference my measurements to the ground were 42.5" at the front and 44" at the rear, this being on 325/50/22's that could maybe use a couple lbs. of air...
