I don't know if anyone has mentioned this yet or not, but if you're going with an RC lift, the tire RC calls for is a 33"-285/65/18.

Here is the full answer in their FAQ (18" or 20"):

A: We recommend running an 18" wheel or larger by 9" wide with a 5" backspacing. The tire size needs be either a 285/65 R18 or a 285/55 R20

I ended up going with a 275/60 R20

Key word is calls for, I went with a 33/12.50/20 no problems A tiny bit of rubbing only in reverse when the weight shifts to the front of the truck so we trimmed about an inch off the inner fender well the fabric screws to and remounted the fabric inner liner.

Can someone with a 6" lift and 285 or 275's post a measurement to the tallest point on the truck. The Arizona heat is hard on vehicles and I would like to keep it garaged. Thanks in advance.

You should be fine. I lived in Tucson and my truck has a 5.5" lift w/33's AND a roof rack... it still fit in the garage.

I think you had a generous garage height.
Here in Kalifornistan, where property is expensive and the government a bunch of commie pinkos, I can't even get mine in the garage with NO roof rack. I have a roll-up garage door too, but it still hangs down too much for me to squeeze underneath

Haha here in TN a lot of people have oversized garages. Mines wide but not tall in comparison. The overhang is what gets me lol my door won't go any further back unfortunately :-/

I must be getting lucky, because my new house in SC still fits my truck in it as well lol But, I'll have to take my roof-rack off when I move up to 35's

Got any good side shots of the truck? They may be on here somewhere and I just haven't found them yet. Also does it set level? Looks good though.
Thanks
