I put 285/70-17's on my '12 1500 Regular cab long bed, needless to say I have some rubbing, not bad, but... I'm looking for pics of similar trucks, and the pic section is mostly extended / crew cabs. Just want an idea if 2" will level it or make it be higher on either end.

Long beds aren't as common, so finding that pic may be tough. But I can tell you I have a similar body style truck as your, mine is a 2006. I cleared 285/70/17 on stock wheels with a 2" level. And you could possibly just crank the stock keys and see what that gets you, before you try to remove a stock key that has been there for 16 years, and will probably fight back..

Measure the height from the ground to the bottom of your fenders front and rear to determine how much lift you need to level

Google images has a bunch of examples if you type in 2012 silverado long bed level

Thanks, didn't dawn on me to measure to the bottom of the fender...

Not exactly what you're looking for but just hoping to help a bit with a reference. My truck has 285/70/17s with a 4 inch lift. I believe the wheels are 17x8 0 offset.
