22.5 Super singles installed, Yay or Nay?

hey guys, i finally got my 22.5's back from machining today and threw them on as quick as i could. keep in mind i only trimmed enough fat on the front to get me home so more fender work is required. what are your thoughts? and any suggestions on the best way to rework the fenders? thanks

Looks pretty sick man.

From looking that the pictures, I'd just flatten out the line on the rear of the wheel well to make it longer...

Or do a body lift on the utiity box.

Or a combination. do about an inch or so spacer under the box mounts, wouldn't put it up a whole lot higher on the truck and it'd give you a lot of tire clearance I think..

But whatever you figure out they look awesome!

Amazingly enough these run a lot smoother than my 19.5's ever did. Even running 90psi. A body lift on the bed would take no time at all it's just 6 big ol u bolts so that will be a good start on the bed.

I like the looks, but what about the ride if your truck is not loaded all the time?

honestly, to runa tire that large(diameter) and look good IMO, you would need a 4" lift.

just looks too tight without the lift.

Right now my utility bed is empty and the total truck is under 10k and I think it rides much better overall than the 19.5' especially over railroad tracks and on country roads. Also dropped my rpms at 60 from ~2600 to 1900rpm so hopefully I will see a fuel mileage increase.

I put pmf's hanger leveling kit on the front but was considering the bushwhacker cut out flares. Only problem is that they stick out the side so far I dunno what it would look like and there is no turnin back once I cut.
