Looking at getting my wheels rehooped in the rear for a bigger lip and narrowing my rear end. The sizes I can get are 20x8.5 with a minimum of 3.375 back spacing or a 20x10 with a minimum of 3.375 to a maximum of 8.something. I'm building a stepside bed so clearance will be close. So I'm thinking of doing the 8.5 hoop with the 3.375. My question is how much lip will that give me and how much will I need to narrow?

By only narrowing the rear end and going with a low backspace on a 8.5 does that keep you from haveing to narrow the frame too? Seem like it would but confused. I know that a 10" wide is a close fit on stock width rails and a fleetside bed but if you raising the step sides flairs and the 10s will fit I would go with the 10s. Love the look of the wide wheels from the back.

Yea it would give me the most lip without narrowing the notch and clearing the stepside bed. I need to measure to see how far I can go in on the axle and wheels

Sold my old bed to Aaron for the hellhound shop truck build. And started my new one to other day.

How I got it


Cut the old floor out




Cut down a new fleetside pan for it


Got it welded In




Half ass test fitted it




These tires are 2" taller then the ones I'm gonna run so they should fit fine. I'm also narrowing the rear end. These are 245/40r20



Got it framed out and tubs tacked in








Also made a tag bracket and had it powder coated

Thanks dudes. I'll probably keep it solid white but I will do the purple liner again. Got some more done. Got my tailgate sheetmetaled and shaved and opening and closing right.
