Ok, just got my baby home from the shop. I am MOST pleased. Here's the low-down:

MaxTrac 3" Front x 1.5" Rear Leveling Kit
KMC XD778 Monster 20x9 +18 Wheels
Nitto Ridge Grapplers, 35x11.50x20

There was a total of 4" of increased height, taking her up to 81". I'm glad it was only 4! She has 1" room to spare getting into my garage. It's that blasted shark fin antenna that I forget about.

At any rate, there has been no rubbing, not even turning up into my driveway, which was a bit of a concern. 12.50s might have been a bit too wide and rubbed, but the 11.50s do just fine, and look pretty good on the truck, too.

I didn't want the negative offset because I end up catching enough rocks as it is here in AZ; there's pretty much an ENDLESS supply along the highways here. I wanted to avoid shooting myself in the foot, as it were, by making my tires stick out and risk chucking rocks/debris into the paint along the sides.

Thank you! Been having TPMS issues; the truck is just not picking up the sensors. Went to the shop today, they did a manual reset/learn, still being stubborn. Had been up to three sensors, now back down to one. I'm thinking either the new wheels, new tires, or both, are throwing some interference. The sensors were "blanks" the shopped programmed for 433 mHz (the freq for the DT). I'm hoping this is just a matter of time on the road for the receivers in the wheel wells to pick things up.

I wonder if it might be that the wheels are 'just that much more wider' that the sensors are 'just that much out of range.' I dunno - I'm just throwing it out there. I wasn't really a fan of the TPMS until I literally watched my left rear going down after running over a nail - barely made it back to the parking lot on base after lunch before the tire finally dropped (got the boss back to work while I swapped on the spare then went to get some new tires... it was almost about that time, anyway).

I ordered some OEM units. I'm hoping that will fix the problem. The OEM units cost $35 each, vs. $50. I'll take a $60 saving ... that's a tank of fuel!!

UPDATE:

The new sensor units showed up last week, and I got them installed today. The shop had to force a re-learn, but the system is now functioning normally.

NOTE: for anyone with a 5th Gen Ram, if you need to replace TPMS sensors, go for OEM units. Also, look to order them on-line. The shop charged $50/ea for aftermarket sensors. I ordered mine from a Mopar site for $38. The shop refunded the $200, and didn't charge me labor to put the new units in. Good shop; I will be taking my vehicle to them from now on. I was out of there in less than 90 minutes (TPMS install, re-learn, oil change while it was in the air). The dealership would have had me leave the truck there all day.
