12" Lift / 42"+ Tires

I was wondering where I can find a lift and Rodney had told me about someone selling Goodyear military tires for a good price

Buy a surplus LMTV or MTV and call it good. Fuel mileage will be about equal, turning radius will be just as crappy, blind spots still suck, but you get bigger fuel tanks, bigger axles, bigger bed, bigger components that matter.

Big thing being the bigger axles and brakes to support those big ol' meats.

I would just hate to see you break an axle on the freeway from it. I don't know what kind of power these 10.5" can handle, but that big of a tire with the power you want to put out, you'll be playing a game of weakest link for a while I think.

Robbie, best thing to do is talk with Rodney on what he did bc his truck is built right. It's beefed up and he put down like 425-450rwhp on those big azz tires of his.

Personally, I think you should get a digital gauge set like a CTS and save up for some head studs. Running tuned, with a bigger turbo and larger injectors without studs and no real way to monitor engine vitals is like playin' Russian roulette with all but one chamber loaded. We all wanna see you enjoy your truck and having a ton of otherwise avoidable engine issues isn't gonna be fun. Just sayin'.

I hear ya, I have enough for studs and gauges, I just don't want to take on a task like that by myself, that is a job in amongst itself haha

Fabtech 10" with leveling kit will clear a 46" with a little trimming. The only problem is the tires are so tall they rub the front 4 link at full lock
