What do yall think??

I just bought my first truck in January. It is a 2003 f250 6.0 and I have finally gathered enough money to start looking at tires and lifts. I am wanting to go with around 37 inch tires and a 8 inch lift. What are good tires as far as tread wear. I have seen BFG's with positive reviews and i'm considering them. Also with this size tires and lift do I need a gear reduction. I'm only 16 and don't have much experience, but want a lifted truck without tearing stuff up.

should take a look at goodyear or procomp tires, BFG's are not the best,

If you're going 37s, I strongly recommend a 4.30 gear to go with them. My friend had 38s on his '03 with 3.73s, it was a pooch. 37s won't be much different.

In fact for the amount that you will spend on JUST an 8 inch lift, you could get a 4" lift AND a set of 35s.

TRICO Force wiper blades
Yellow Military Aircraft Valve Stem Caps
Offensive "Stick Family" Decal
Big Ol'Honkin 1 1/4" Shank Receiver Hitch


WHAT!?! I was trying to list stuff that everyone else
hasn't already listed for their truck!
