    Cool 315/75-16

    If you do serious off-roading stay away from body lifts. We had customers cab and bed rub together big time and others have gas filler tubes and underhood wiring torn apart. All body lift kits were installed exactly per kits instructions. Skyjacker makes a nice 3inch suspension lift that doesnt require dropping the front diff. Its more money than a body lift but alot better. Also 33s is the biggest you should install with 3inch lift if you go off-road . If you compress your suspension when the steering is at full lock anything bigger will rub and maybe bend a fender. Most of your suspension lift companies have recommended tire size/lift charts on-line.

    ive got a leveling kit on it and just ordered the add-a-leafs.so that part is about done.ive still got some room to crank the torsion bars a little more if needed.and i dont mind trimming a little plastic.(not planning on trading the truck in so im really not worried about resale value or anything like that) itll be a while before i do order larger tires cuz the ones ive got probably have a good 50k miles left on em..just tryin to plan ahead a little.the 285s seem to look smaller and smaller everytime i add somthin to the truck..but thanks everybody!

    Along the same lines of this topic... I plan on getting a 2" suspension lift kit. and i found some LT305/55/R20 Mickey Thompson tires... Does anyone know if these tires will still rub on a 2" lift kit? it's only a 33" tire...

    lucky you get to go to florida, i get to go to 29 plams california to do MOUNT Training and get shot at and them bullets hurt like hell. oh well its better than my unit they had to go to Benin, Africa for 2 1/2 weeks, i would have but they ****ed up my passport, what else is new ****in marines. have fun dude and i also heard from a guy yesterday the firestone's Destination M/T last along time and he said if you pay once at firestone for a aligmnet then you get free aligments for life and balance and rotate, he had a 06 silverado Z71 with 315/70/17 which is the sames size that me and you want on our rims and it looked so good too. really think about 35's it just looks too good
