Guys are clearing 37s no problem on those trucks with a level. 35s are no problem at all, and can be run at, or very close to stock height.

Thats assuming stock wheels.

Ya it will be stock wheels for a bit but I do plan on getting some 20x9 0 offset eventually. I like flush to minor poke.

Yeah 35s will be no problem with a level on your truck.

Heck I run 35s on mine with stock 2020 wheels and I'm leveled just under 2", and mine is the previous body style.

Ok right on good to know. I am assuming the 2" level doesn't really change the ride quality enough to notice? In your opinion, shoukd I even worry about the UCA's at 2"? Never owned a torsion key setup before so I just want whats right.

It absolutely changes the ride. It isn't at all terrible, but you can tell a difference. I run some bilstein 5100s, which I don't really like, and a set of kryptonite control arms.

I made a set of shock spacers and used the factory torsion keys. They will go more than high enough to ruin things if you over do it, so aftermarket keys aren't needed.

The key to a decent ride is the control arms. It gets them away from the droop stops, which even at just 2" you'll be very close to them, and that's what ruins the ride.

If you plan to never do a lift, I'd also get a diff drop kit to help reduce the angle on your CV axles a little. Your lower ball joints and tie rods will always be poor, and there really isn't anything you can do to fix that without going with a lift.

I'll be doing a 4" kit most likely this spring/summer to get nice flat angles back again. The level is just a temporary thing to fit the wheels I wanted.

Awesome thanks for taking the time to answer all my questions.

The 2" kit I've been looking at includes diff drop and skittles drop as well. Sounds like ill be going that route with the Kryptonite UCA's then.

Here is the kit:

I wouldn't bother getting the torsion keys.

They aren't needed. The stock keys will go plenty high. The aftermarket keys will just allow you to crank them beyond a safe range.
