40in tires

I have an 8in BDS suspension lift on my 1999 I want to go with 40x13.5x20 or 40x14.5x20s. I have seen guys on here with 6in lifts and 38s. Can I do this? Pros/ Cons? Also guys at school are dogging me about more lift I'm fine with 8in but they say body lift the truck. I don't want to and I can't make them understand why a body lift is bad for our trucks Any advice?

BL's will have to be custom since the motor stays in the frame and the intercooler moves up with the body.

There's a guy around here running a 10" lift and 39.5's and he makes them look kinda small (looks like he could use a couple of more inches of tires). Not sure how that would compare but figured I'd throw that out there! LOL

yeah ull deffently rubb my 38x15.5's rubbed on my front bumper before i shimmed it out and on the spring pack a lil bit now if you get some bushwacker cut out flares you could probably clear 39.5's maybe 40's if you wanted to you could had a 3.5inch hanger kit to the front and 2inch blocks in the rear and get extended brake lines then you could clear them....

yup the hangers would work really good.. .fabtech makes some 3.5" and pro-comp makes a 2" shackle lift.. all you would need is new shocks and brake lines

So I could buy a 3 inch hanger kit from fabtech for the front and blocks in the rear. The BDS site says 38x14.5 will fit. All I will have to extend is the brake lines nothing else? I just might do the fender flare cutout. I just want the porportions to look right sinces it a CC LB.

yeah cheaper to do the cut outs but remember you are cutting your fenders...check my pics out tho 38x15.5's look great on a cc lb with an 8inch lift...

Which would look better 38s on 20s or 38s on 18s? Also would it be a good idea to change the brakes with either combination?

38 on 20's in my opinion would look way better. you can upgrade to powerslot cryo treaded rotors on hawk pads... that would get those monster tires stopping

SSBC (Stainless Steel Brake Company) has up graded calipers for superduties that fit on stock rotors inside stock wheels. They upgrade the 1 or 2 piston stock calipers to 8 pistons! I would love to feel the stopping power of these!. Did I mention they fit inside the stock wheels?
