Hi Pat,
I have done extensive homework on this and decided to go the whole hog - 4 link, 9", new tank, no spare. I needed 17" rims to cover my 13" rotors and a 17"rim and tyre will not fit in the nomad spare tire carrier. With a TCI 4 link the nomad tank will not fit but you can lay down any Tri Five tank between the rails. I have laid a flat piece of sheet metal in the cargo area.

The wheel scenario is dictated by the chassis rail and inside lip of wheel arch. Most suppliers suggest if you move the springs inboard you can fit 10" of rubber which translates to a 9.5" wheel with the appropriate tyre. I'm not sure a 12" rim will fit unless you tub it. Good luck with your project.
