I am running 35" 12.5/17s terra graplers on 17x9s with a Zone 3" level kit on my current 04 6.0 ccsb fx4, if you run a deep rim it will rub on the wheelwell corners. the picture in my avatar is my old 04 315/75/16s on 16x10s 4" backspace, still rubbed on a 4" procomp that measured 5" actual lift, I like my zone level kit with bilstein shocks. Wheel backspace and width are critical, I used to manage a 4x4 shop and did countless installs on leafspring Superdutys, some people even fit 315s on oem rims with no lift, 305s fit on oem rims, although 285/75s are a better choice than 305 70s(they are taller anhave a flatter footprint on the oem rims, I run them on my excursion).
