I am planning some upgrades here very soon on my 2008 SLT Sport Quad Cab 4x4. I am going to instal a 2.0" leveling kit, Bilstein shocks, Power slot rotors, steering stabalizer, and new tires.

The issue here is the tires. I plan on putting on Nitto 305/55/20 or 295/60/20. I know I need a hub centric wheel spacer, but do I need 1/2" or 3/4". Any suggestions or criticisms?

Nevermind, I figured it out myself. Nitto Trail Grappler M/T 305/55/20 fit fine on my stock 2008 Dodge Ram SLT Sport. No spacers needed.

No problem, I figured it out. I learned a little along the way as well. More mods to come. Although, a minor set back when the truck broke down and I found the EGR valve bad. But the lift is next!

The egr valve is only 45 bucks and really easy to do yourself. Save you the money of paying a shop to do it.
