Factory 20"s on my '01

THinking of upgrading to better wheels on my '01. There seem to be a lot of factory 20"s from 05-current trucks....will these just bolt up or do I need spacers? Anyone done this?

Also, I have 2wd....will I need a front end lift?

Lets see some Pics!

im new here, but from what i read, you must use spacers and the only ones worth buying are made by a guy on here, they are hubcentric, where ebay spacers are not. they are like $600 for the spacers alone

I believe the bolt patterns are different> if your goin to get a spacer anyways you could just get an adapter

Just from my experience, no the bolt pattern isn't different but the offset is. I had a set of 17"s off my 05 that a guy wanted to buy and put on his 01. they bolted up just fine but the rims rubbed, I think it was either the steering linkage or caliper, don't remember exactly. The 05 rims didn't stick out as far and gave the 01 a more narrow stance. So that would be what the spacers are for. The 20s shouldn't have that clearance problem since it was just a slight rub on the 17s. I'm not sure about them being put on a 2wd though if there would be any issues on the front end height there.

no spacers needed..tires rub..want tires not to rub? space them LOL bolt patterns the same, reason for the offest being diff is the newer diffs are 3" wider then ours now..

OH you cannot use the 05 caps unless you have spacers, will need to use your originals!

im not 100% sure on 2wd trucks but i know on 4x4 trucks the 05 and newer wheels rub on the leafs because of the offset, and that was the year they switched to coils in the front.
