Finally found a clean 12v.. 34" tires and no lift?

Hey everyone.

Ive been searching for a clean 12v and may have found it. It almost to clean for me and the wrong 4.10 gears, but its only one hour drive so I better consider it.

My question is, can I remove the 4in/3in leveling kit on this truck to lower it enough for my 79" garage door and not rub front fenders with 34" tires on offset rims? Because I don't want to lower the gearing even more with smaller tires..


Thanks!

Those wide rims pictured and 34 inch tires will almost be guaranteed to not fit on a stock height truck...Unless you can get away with never turning the front tires for a turn.

Real options as I see it would be:

Don't park it in the garage.

Smaller tires and no lift, which will make it rev high on the highway

Swap axles for 3.54s then lower it and buy new tires / rims

Find a different truck.

Install bigger garage door.

Those tires and rims rubbed BAD the way it sits now!
Crappy repaint with runs and bugs.
Brakes pulled hard to left.
Trans shifted hard
Rust
Doors didn't close tight..
Big hole in bed from stacks

I was disappointed.

Yeah, you just do not know till you get there. I bought a 24v on the west coast. Gave 16,500 for it. Probably have 20K in it now, making it right again.

Too bad, the picture sure looks good. That aftermarket grille looks kinda interesting, I wonder where it's from.
