Hey guys I'm just body dropping my luv at the moment and looking into what wheel/tyre combo I can run. Truck is laying hard sill with the ouch cut off. Is anybody bodied on 20" wheels? I know rear will work but front may be my issue, hard to tell as I currently am waiting on control arms so my front end is in pieces. Looking to hopefully run 245/35/20 all round but may have to run 245!or 235/30/20 up front, any end is appreciated

Luke

You won't be able to body it with a 20 up front after I bodied mine my 20 was sticking 4 inches above the fender tops, unless you plan on cutting your hood and fender tops out. But hey maybe you do. Did you cut the rockers off or did you just go to the bottom of stock rocker?

I've discovered that I won't be able to run the 20's unfortunately. I think I will end up runing an 18x8 or 7.5 with a 225/35 series tyre. I have kept the sill panel i just cut the pinch off and plated it. cant recall how big the drop is but around 50mm from memoryI haven't made a thread but am still in the process of doing the bodydrop, I am making a shs frame for my new floor because of rust. Have dropped the front horns and not come across any problems so far apart from my wheel size.

Any pictures anywhere of the tubs etc? If I go on a 20" wheel I will only have around 5mm left on the panel after its tubbed so not to keen on cutting that much out.
