38's on a leveling kit

Quick question guys. I have a 2.5 leveling kit on my 06. I have 35x12.5r20's mud grapplers on now but found a guy that has a nice set of dick cepek 38x15.50r20's and he told me he had the 2.5 kit and these fit?. I really hate the noise of the grapplers and heard these were quieter? Thanks

Hell no the dick cepecs aren't going to be quieter. I have dick cepec radial 33s on mine and you cant hear the engine going even 30 mph. And I higly doubt those 38s will fit. 33's rub the wells on mine but it has no lift/leveling kit

They will fit with a 2-1/2 leveling kit after you cut off the fenders front and rear with the Sawzall.

DC Fun Country Radials were awesome tires. I had 4-5 sets in 36/15.50/15 and loved them over a 20 year span.
Wished I could get them in 18" wheels today. Never ran the Fun CountryII but imagine they are as nice as the earlier tires. 50K was easy to get out of them as long as you refrained from smokey burn outs.

No Way will those fit without 6" minimum lift 7" is what you really need. I have that stance now with 38/15.50/18 Toyo MT
