    It seems like a bad idea to base your wants around a tire, but if that's the path you seek, you'll need to disclose what width/height the tire is. If the tire is under 12" wide, you can probably get away with a wheel 8" wide with 4" backspacing, if the tire is wider than 12" you'll need at least 3.5" backspacing. You wont need aftermarket arms if you get the right backspacing since the TC lift keeps the upper arm angle proper.

    Your truck is gonna hate spinning those tires. Bigger tires, bigger problems.

    Uca = upper control arm
    Lca = lower control arm

    What does the rough country website say? They specify what size and offset rims they recommend. It'll look sweet. Post pics!

    Yeh, tech support says " who I purchase the rims from will tell me the size & offset". I appreciate the inputs & questions which requires another thought/question from me. The comment of putting money aside for rear gears. Will heel that warning but, what's the problem? I was hoping when coming here , that someone would have lifted an "05" to this xtent.

    hoping and reality are usually two different things. do a search here for 5" lifts, 6" lifts, and body lifts. you need to read all that you can and understand what you are dealing with so you know what questions to ask. there aren't many lift-consultants here that work for free; though some do work for peanuts. seriously bro, hit up the search feature and you will learn a ton.

    i have an 06, the trade off of doing a bracket lift instead of a spacer lift/shock lift etc is just that you can fit 35" tires under it. we 33s under my truck, i just wasnt happy. to me the truck looked stock as hell with the 33s and thats not what i wanted. so after years of running my spacer lift i bought a RCD. ive been very happy with it and my truck looks lifted. ive had it a year. about the only thing i dont like about it is the bumpsteer i get.

    i fit 35s with room to grow under my truck. personally id like to find some 35X14.5 but they dont offer many in 16" wheels and the ones offered i wouldnt put under my truck. with the addition of the cool brotruck 17s and above is the norm now a days. the bigger the wheel the more expensive the tire.
