but yes.. those tires a VERY loud.. i had 38x15.5x20's on my 03 w/ 8" Lift.. 20x12 wheels.. they were very loud, even with the windows up, it sounded like i was in airplane 30K feet up
Exactly what it sounds like. I don't like all the looks I get just because of the sound lol. Doesn't help that I got a 5" exhaust. I have offers already and I'm going with a 38" tire on 22's so I will do that.

I installed 2" spears on my old truck in my driveway with the factory bottle jack, a small craftsman floor jack for cars, and 8 concrete slabs to hold the frame up. Would have been much easier with just a lift and a good floor jack.
That's what I wanted, but figured I would save for a new set. Those or the toyos.
The lift worked out great. Would definitely do things differently this time though. I only got the front done today. Not bad for not knowing where all the tools were in the shop, and I had to run out and find something to pull the pitman arm off because theirs was too small. Also had to run to a shop next door and get a socket big enough to pull the nut off. The rear will be cake. Also, I had no help, because all the guys were on customer cars. If I was to do it again, I would say 3hrs for the front. It's actuall an easy job.... But then again, I'm on a lift.
