What size wheels and tires???

I just bough my first diesel, its a 2009 6.7 with a ranch hand front bumper. I want to level the truck and get new wheels and tires. Can I run 20x10 -19mm wheels with 35x12.5 tires on a 2.5" level? I have pocket style flares as well if that makes a difference. I attached a pic of my truck as a reference.

With your extremely heavy bumper/winch combo a 2.5" leveling kit shouldn't yield that. The aftermarket springs are generally a softer rate than stock.
Some custom springs will yield the lift you're after
No idea on the rims but the size you mentioned will negatively affect your scrub radius and bearing life.

Do you think I could clear that setup if I did some trimming?

Super slick truck! Thanks for the info. Can you turn all the way in both without rubbing?

Do your flares still cover it pretty good? My last truck was on 20x12 -44 with 33x12.5s. I had flares and still had a ton of rock chips and couldn't keep it clean. I am definitely a fan of the stance. What else have you done to yours? This is my first diesel. My list is pretty long and keeps growing.

It just takes time and money lol. I want to retune mine with EFI. Right now I have Edge Juice with Attitude. After tuning I am gonna do a 2.5" level, dual shock steering stabilizer, steering gearbox brace, 20x10 hostile alphas with 35s. After that it is all little things.

That's the plan! Is your truck tuned?
