It appears that someone had larger tires on it once since the lower front plastic valance is shaved/radiused at the bottom. kindof a tell tale sign that someone opened it up from a larger tire rubbing.....
edit: take some pictures of the rear block/springs and the front springs/pitman arm and track bar drop bracket. might make it a little easier to figure out. especially the rear block setup since it appears to have the stock rear springs with an add a leaf under it. I imagine it's a 4" procomp lift to be exact.
The guy didn't know much about the lift. He bought the truck from his brother in law. I took one of the wheels off today and measured the backspacing at 5", this seems a bit much to me and I wonder if I put a wider tire on if it will rub the leaf springs????? You are correct, it is an add a leaf sitting on like 4.5" blocks. And yes, I noticed the front had been trimmed as well. I just dont want to invest in new tires on these rims and have it sit like a bread truck.........so i guess my question is knowing it's an 18x10 wheel with 5" backspacing, should I get different wheels or would they be ok with wider tires and look good but not rub?
