    285/75/16 will fit no problem, if you get just a simple spacer to level the front end out, you will be able to go bigger

    I would like to get the front higher as well. My 2WD 2001 is alot lower in the front.

    I did the procomp level kit and have 285/75/18. There was some rubbing but I trimmed out some plastic and a bit of metal.
    If you slap on the 285's without a level kit you'll mostlikely have the kit installed the next day.
    4 wheel parts did mine for about 500 bucks or so - including parts and labor witht the lifetime allignment. Take a look at my albums.

    level it

    if all you want to do is get the front end higher then i recomend going with a rough country leveling kit ($100). or if you want to go up all arround i recomend going with the the truxxx leveling/lift kit($290). 3 inch front and 2 inch rear. both will clear 285/75R16's but the truxxx i think is a better deal. both can be found at www.rockmountainsusp.com or www.4wheelonline.com.

    x2 on the leveling kit, very smart way to go. it's easy to take off and put on, and does wonders for your truck. if you get the right one, it may not even void your foactory warranty
