No sir, that leveling is thanks to the tires and rims.

Moving from 16" Aluminum and Goodyear Fortitude HT tires to 17" with the Grabber At2's gave me about 1.5" more clearance.

OR the 300lbs of wheels and tires in the bed squated it a touch.

Trust me, you didn't gain any clearances by going with bigger tires, other than the ground.

Looks good.

Thats literally the only way to get more clearance is to get bigger tires. Nothing else will lift up the axle's which is the lowest part of the truck.

Only thing a lift gives you, is longer travel and ability to put larger tires. Strictly speaking of clearance and ride height.

Lift will increase angles of approach, breakover, and departure but you're right about minimum clearance. That is from the shock mounts and the rear differential and tire diameter will change that.

No shit. Perhaps you missed the "other than the ground" part?
And also one needs to halve the added tire height as the additional ground clearance, since it's applied to the total circumference, and not just hanging out at the contact patch.

Old Tires: 265/70/16 = 30.6"
New Tires: 265/70/17 = 31.7"

31.7 - 30.6 = 1.1" DIAMETER, so half of that is above the axle, the other half below, and added to lift the axle up. You got 0.55" more clearance under the truck. That is it. Nothing more.

Also, shouldn't this be in the wheels and tires section, and have a thread title that isn't this "click-bait-ey"?

I agree . . it is a nice upgrade. And nice to read some upbeat friendly comments that hopefully offset the nit picky snarky ones.

Not that anyone asked my opinion, but none of the comments in this thread bother me. It's just a few pointing out facts. It's the constant sarcastic comments about using the search function that get old to me.

For the record, I also think your truck looks great.

That looks GREAT!
BIG difference!

Those are Z71 wheels, right?
I have the exact set sitting in boxes in my garage waiting for my OE tires to wear out. Just can't bring myself to spend $150 just to switch out my rims right now.
How do you like the Grabbers?
Any road whine?

And don't worry about what anyone says, as long as YOU (and maybe the OL) like it, that's all that matters......

Little snarky here aren't ya?

And your math is off

Old diameter was 29.1" (P255/65R16) new diameter is 31.6" (265/70R17) which is 1.5" difference, or 3/4" above and below the axle as you would put it.

So I was correct in my size adjustment, just didn't take into consideration the wheel shape. My bad, I am NEW. Don't know all this crap off the top of my head.

And also, how is thread title click-bait-ey?

Some people are just snippy.

$150??? Tire Pro's by work did the switch for 20$ a tire. Including TPMS. But, I goofed and did't know these were 17" rims versus my stocks of 16" so I bought new tires, and then they waved the install fee, balance, weights, TPMS and basically charged just for the tires.

Yes they are Z71 rims.
I like the Grabbers, ride is so much better, and yes there is a bit of tire whine, but I like it!
