I've ordered a Ready Lift 1.75" Leveling kit with new upper control arms. My problem is now that I've read all the post on tires I am confused.... I'll be using the stock wheels and getting Toyo ATIII tires since I can't get KO2s in the 18" size. Ready lift says you can run a 285/75/18 with no problems, I was thinking a little wider with 295/70/18. Any experience on the differences?

I have the ReadyLift with 295 70 Toyo Open Country lll on stock TB 18in wheels.
Zero rubbing with that setup.
I added 1.5in spacers and minor rubbing in the mudflap area. I trimmed the mudflap, removed the mudflap bracket, and pulled in the liner. Back to zero rubbing.

Thank you, did you need the spacers, or was that just to give it a wider stance?

I just installed the Ready Lift 1.75 with UCA's. Stock 20" wheels on 1.75" Coyote spacers. I removed the stock flaps and installed Rocklox rally flaps with Lund fender flares. I did have some rear inner arch rubbing prior to adding the level kit. All good now and after an alignment the set up feels good.

Probably look fine w/o the mudflap. I kept them since the remaining 1/2 still protects the lower door paint from stuff off the tires.

Thanks, Just ordered the same tires. I'll live on them for a bit and decide on the spacers, yours look good though. What fender covers did you go with? Plan on the Rough Country speedo calibrator as well.

The flares are from Air Design ordered through my GM Dealer.
My speedo is off a few miles at hwy speeds but doesn’t bother me at all so I just left it.

Thank you for all the info! Since I'm copying everything else you've done..... What brand of spacers did you use, and, did you use the stock lugs on the tires?
Thanks,
Chris

A local machine shop made the spacers. Just stick with a major brand like Bora and not ebay Chinese junk.
I kept the stock chrome lug nuts.
