my truck is identical to yours and i got 35s (315/75/16) to clear, you have to trim the lower plastic valance under your front bumper and ziptie your e brake cable behind your driver front wheel well so its not pushing on the inner fender liner. i havent had rubing issues yet but i havent taken the truck out wheeling yet either. it did drop my rpms down 400 at highway speeds.

Im not gonna be mudding at all, I just think the stock tires look kinda whimpy, I think im gonna do the leveling kit and check out what the (315/75/16) look like.

yah the bfg's are the best ones to go with. they are a good all around tire. you can do a simple add a leaf for under 150.00.. or you can do a hanger kit for around 250.00

add a leaf: Stealth Automotive. Super LIft Add-A-Leaf kit (Front)
hanger kit: Stealth Automotive. 2" Shackle Leveling Kit
