    I have a 3 inch body lift...and have new 3 inch keys to be installed. Would 37s be able to fit with the new keys and blocks?

    Hope you didnt pay much if anything for those keys.... the stock keys will max you out against the bump stops long before they run outta adjustment. Keys are a gimmick to get you to spend money.....

    And with out trimming, no, I do not believe 37's will fit and be able to let you turn without hitting your fenders.

    My 97 k1500 has a 3 inch body lift, 2 inch block and torsion bars cranked. I’m running 285s on my 16x10 ultra 164s. Could I fit 35s without cutting much of my fender?

    Hey guys instead of lifting the front bumper has anyone tried to use an c3500hd front bumper filer ? I'm thinking about doing a body lift on my c3500 dually and I want to use the HD bumper filler to give some more air flow for the 6.5

    How much did you have to cut from the back of the fender?

    Why do the kits say you cant body lift a 6.2 diesel? I did a search and all i could find was because of the fan location and cooling issues. Is this true?

    Thats what ive seen. I don't know if this issue would be a big one. I have a vortec.. but i'm pretty sure that's why they say they won't fit the diesels. But they also might, i'm sure the is someone that has but a body lift on a diesel model.

    Just in case anyone was wondering.. It is possible to fit 315/75r16 on 16x10 wheels if you have a 3 inch body lift and adjust the torsion bars a little. I have a two inch block in the rear and have the torsion bars up 3/4 of the way. I had to trim the lower plastic valance of the bumper at an angle, cut the bottom corner of the bumper very slightly, and bend in the inner fender. The tires cleared everything but just barely catch the frame at full crank. It isn't going to hurt the tires any because they are rubbing a smooth surface and you probably wont be going fast enough to be full turn and hit the frame. It can be done and I will post pics of everything on my page soon.
