    Not sure what to get first. I want a 3-3.5inch lift kit and wheels and tires. Slightly smaller wheels from 17 thinking about 16 inch but with bigger tires also. Any suggestions ? Thanks

    FYI 17” is as smallest as you can go on the 5th gens.
    I’d do a lift though because you can only fit 275’s on stock suspension and it’ll look goofy with anything over a 2” lift.

    I have 295’s on a 3” lift and it fits just right and rides like a dream! My advice, spend some time reading through here and then decide what you want to do with your truck and consider everything that comes with lifting your rig. Buy once cry once!

    17" is as small as will fit on a 5th gen due to rotor and caliper size.
    3" will require UCAs and will stress CVs, 3.5" will get into diff drop territory.
    Tires are the only real weakness off the lot, so you should address that which is weak first.

    Use the search function and read through the archives. There might even be track conversion kits that you like, if you want to go arctic or just insane.

    Welcome.
