NEW GUY, NEW TRUCK, PICS & QUESTIONS!!

Howdy all, Great site. I haven't needed to register this past month because I was to busy reading all the dang FAQs lol

Anyways, Im buying this truck(gave deposit, picking up next weekend) and would like yalls input and opinions on it. It is a 2001 7.3 ccsb xlt 4x4 with 118k on it. Only performance mods are a 4" exhaust. It also has the 05+ front end on it, fender flares a small lift or leveling kit(I'll get to that) and some little odds and ends.

Here is question 1. Can you tell by the pics if it is just a leveling kit? The original add said 3.5" suspension lift but the guy says it might just be a leveling kit. He wasn't sure. It has procomp shocks and dual steering stabilizers and he's running 35s on 16s right now.

Im wanting to run 35s on 20s but want to make sure they'll fit. It needs tires so nows the time. Question 2. Will they fit?

My plans are 35s on 20s, guages the day I get it, DIY filter mod, ts 6 position, tint, stereo, remove chrome door handles and gas cap door, and whatever else yall reccomend.

Whats your thoughts? Look forward to learning from the guys who know best. Thanks in advance

35's on 20's will fit the same as 35's on 16's. a 35" tire is a 35" tire. need better picks of the suspension to tell on the lift. also, is it a 250 or 350?

Its a 250. That was my thinking on the tires but Ive read a lot on here about only certain 20" wheels working. Im wanting to run a 20x10 rim becauce I want em to stick out a little especially since its got fender flares.

I'll get better pics this weekend when I pick it up.

they have to be hubcentric not lugcentric and also have the correct backspacing (although I couldnt tell you what it is)

Welcome to the Site! And Great looking truck! as others said a 35" outter diameter tire is already on the truck, so running 35's will not be a problem! Beware that 35's on 20's is a bit spendy (the tires are the expensive part!) I think I paid around $2500 for my Good Year Dura tracs (325/60R20) and my 20x9 XD Hoss wheels. (4.5" backspacing is what is needed im pretty sure)

A lift or a leveling kit is just a difference in terms really, a leveling kit generally refers to just raising the front to match the rear. The way that truck looks from the pics (wheel well gap front and rear) looks like it's certainly up there a bit further!

Close up pics of the suspension will narrow down what it is. I would guesstimate that it has some add-a-leafs on the front and rear to lift it up 3.5"

And I love the name, "No Foreign Crap!"

LOL Im on about 10 different forums with this name and your the 1st to notice it. It goes back to my Mustang days. I hate ricers! It will be my new liscence plate also.

Anyways, thanks fr the help and the compliments. Im going to pick it up this weekend and I'll post more pics then.

I agree that by the pics it looks like it has something on the front and the rear.
