Pull out the ole measuring tape, it varies truck to truck. If you're in between sizes, I'd round to the lower size.

Most people recommend using the top of the fender arch as a reference point, measure from the center of the hub to the top of the fender.

2.5 should be fine, thats what I had on mine. But I did not like it at all!!! It brought the front wheels closer together. Made the truck look like it needed wide rims really bad!!! I had just purchased new tires & did not want rims. I ended up lowering the rear 2" with shackles and lifting the front about 3/4" to level the truck. Looks like thats the way it should have been from the factory, not extreme at all. Plus I would always get flashed when I was running my fog lights, not anymore.
