Hey I need some help. What all would I have to do to get my truck to lay out with 22's? It lays out now on 17's. I have thought about running 20's but I think 22's would look so much better. Any help is greatly apperchiated.

It involves more work up front to run 22s vs 20s. You will need to remove inner fenders and trim inside the fenders, notch frame for tie rods and lower control arms. If you keep the stock arms it requires more trimming on frame vs tubular arms. Depending on your tire size you will most likely need to cut a small section of firewall and remove hood springs so you can close the hood. In back you need about an 8-inch step notch measured from bottom of frame rail. Notch gas tank cross member and you probably also want to raise the tank.
