Ok, thanks for the explanation DiggerDerrik and The Evil Twin. So that would explain why my truck sits level once I hook up my trailer to it. It 'grunts' a bit when I lower the tongue onto the hitch, but it pulls it like there's nothing back there.

Guess I didnt refresh the thread and see that your question was answered. Lol.
Yeah. A lot of folks like them to be level unloaded. I'm going to do a leveling kit first. If I dont like the look then I'll just add a leaf to the rear.

Y'alls rides look good. This my 2012 F-350 295/65R20 ridge grapplers. No lifting and no rubbing. I like the level look just don't like spending money I don't need to.

How are those tires on the highway? Do they have a lot of road noise? They have been on my wish list. I know whatever I get is going to be louder than stock. The Terra Grapplers I had on the Grand Cherokee increased road noise some, but not as much as those will I bet.

With the windows up and the ac or heat on I donít hear them. With the windows down the only time I hear them is when I am close to a concrete wall, solid fence or something similar. IMO not enough to worry about. They have done well in the snow and mud. I hear more noise in my wifeís 13 expedition with the terra grapples G2 than I do in my truck. Just keep in mind my wife says I have selective hearing.

Our GC was still pretty quiet with the TG on it. Then again, it has much more sound deadening insulation than the truck does. On the other hand, the pleasant diesel sound may cancel out any additional noise from tires.
How about clearance when turning up a hill? Like into a steep driveway or over a curb? I dont off road hard core but do flex the suspension on occasion. Fire roads and such.
Sorry for all the questions. Just want to make sure I know whats what. This size is looking to be a likely addition.

I don't do hard core off roading like I did when I was younger. I have flexed the suspension quite a bit and never had any rubbing. Hope this helps.
