I have the Rough Country BB lift. It's a 2 inch spacer lift and I fit 265/70r17 tires no problem. Only other thing needed is the pinch weld mod

That's only slightly taller than a 32" I think it right under a 33" tire. I believe it should fit but may need spacers. Hopefully someone else can chime in who knows for certain!

A 285/75/17 is close to 34" which is way to big for a BB. However, I think it was a typo since she originally said she wants to get 255/75/17 with a lift, which should fit fine.



Edit : Most people need spacers for those wheels to clear the calipers,on a 2005 you may be ok though.

RRO lift and RC lifts are identicle, ive been told. Essentially whichever you can get a better deal on. I have heard some customer service horror stories with the RRO peoples. I had no problems what-so-ever. If you go with RRO dont buy their shocks, they are turrible.

And youll want to pinch weld mod asap if its ur daily driver. Have fun with 'the bolt'

I hate that bolt with a passion. We had to destroy it to get it out. Torch, drills, powered hammer. 5 hours on one bolt.
