    20x10 fuel Mavericks -19mm offset, 33x12.5 Nitto ridge grapplers
    I recently purchased a set of fuel Mavericks 20x10 -19mm offset wrapped in 33x12.5R20LT E Nitto ridge grapplers.

    With my budget ( in college ), I can only afford to do a leveling kit. I’m aware that I’m gonna have to trim; however, I’m trying to keep it to a minimum.
    I want my setup to be as level as possible. Trying to avoid any drop in the front.

    My question is: can I get away with only a 2.5” level or do I need a 3”?

    You sure those are going to fit? I think you’re going to have to do more than trim. Body mount chop?

    I would stick with 2.5", where you still have a shot at getting a decent alignment (maybe not ideal, but tolerable). At 3", you're increasing the odds of needing upper control arms to get there (which I'm assuming isn't in your budget). In either case, you're most likely going to need to do some trimming. You'll probably need a 1" spacer in the rear too, otherwise you could be squatting in the rear.

    Would expect to have to trim parts of the front fender liner, and possibly trim off some of the body near the bottom of the front fender well. You will likely also need a cab mount chop, and trim part of the corner if the bottom rear of the fender well. If you have mud flaps, you'll need to ditch those as well (at least in the front, rear should be fine).

    probably go 3" and then get good UCA's so you can control alignment.

    Lift doesn't solve all rubbing problems.

    I think with either it still still rub a little. Those are some wide ass tires.
