you could get away with Slam 6's in the front and slam 7's in the rear

Here's a decent front kit for your truck

The reason I asked, was most bagged trucks have alot more camber when aired out, and your rims look pretty straight. Me likey!
that sir, is incorrect. polskis truck on RPS has almost zero negative camber, LAYED OUT on 22's. it all has to do with your bag placement and suspension geometry, A arm trucks have a hell of alot less camber than a beam truck for example.

A arm trucks with stock mounting points still have a shitton of camber. To avoid camber you need to go with almost equal length arms. I stand by my statement, MOST bagged trucks have alot more camber when aired out. Some choose to correct the situation by running a different arm setup, such as a MustangII clip. Or as in your example, a complete custom fab job.


Oh, and just because Polski did it, doesn't mean most do. You know that.

Sometimes its better to have the slight camber change when laid out. My buddy had a yota that he was running 19s and if it wasnt for the camber change on the last inch of travel he couldnt drive the truck laid out. And just like john said its all about geometry and how its built.
