Yes, but for the sake of safety you need to use at least 19Ē wheels. If you use anything smaller than that, your lower control arm will hang below the scrub line. Iíve got 20ís on my sonís truck and itís pretty close.

got a new front bumper. not oem, and it’s taiwan made lol, needed a little finesse to get it to fit, mainly due to the passenger bracket being slightly tweaked. looks pretty good for what it is and being fairly cheap.

To be fair, it looks decent and not bad at all. Nice truck you got there.

so almost everything i was needing is ordered, only things i still need to order is wheels/tires and drop spindles and i think i’m gonna actually go with belltech lowering leafs and 1 inch blocks instead of the 4 inch blocks i originally bought. so i’ll need to see if i can return my current blocks or sell them. i’ll probably order the spindles and leafs/blocks here in the next week or so. i’ll post pics as things progress lol. slowly but i’ll be getting things done.

Hi EF2,
I have the belltech spindles and leaves with a 4degree shim on my truck. The ride is very much stock, you will love it if you go that route.
Just a word of caution. If you are going to re-drill the rear hangers, the 1 inch blocks will put your axle very(VERY) close to resting on the frame.
I have zero bump stops in my truck front or rear, with about 2.25" of clearance between the axle and frame, and I occasionally bottom the rear against the frame rail on spirited turns when there is a bump in the road. If you are doing a mini-notch the 1 inch blocks should be fine, if no notch I would think that they will be a bit too close to be comfortable, unless the roads where you live are exceptionally well maintained.....
I have a couple of pictures in my album if you want to see the height of the above combination. For what its worth my truck has the 17" Titans with 205/50/17 tires for an overall tire height ~1.5% larger than the stock tire height.
