If you wanna drive alittle check out Matanzas state forest. You have to call and get a permit to go there, which is just asking the person on the phone to drive there and they give you the gate code and you let yourself in and lock the gate behind you. So theres usually no one in there and its some fun little trails nothing crazy. I have see lots of hogs back there.

Interesting...I might check that out...I was a little hesitant at first with the 2wd but it seemed to do alright. I just didn't know how good it would do offroad since 1 hour after I bought the truck last June I was stuck offroading in North Jax for like 3hrs until my finace's dad could come pull me out lol...all during that time I kept thinking, "should have got the 4x4" lol

Ok guys so been looking around trying to find a decent tire for a decent price and still upgrade to a bigger tire and not have any rubbing issues.

Well I took my first step to figuring out what i want.

First off i decided to stick with the stock rims. Its a money issue so for now unless i just run across a deal i cant refuse im going to stick with the stock steelies.

Was walking sround the beach blvd flea market and they got this tire store there selling new and used tires. (Great price and sevice) I was shocked.

So to start out i bought a set of tires and put them on the back they are Goodyear Wrangler Radials. I went with 235/75/15 there 2 inches taller than stock. Old tires were 26 inches new ones are 28's. And of course I want bigger. So im going to put these on the fronts drive around for a while and make sure I dont have any rubbing issues. If so (and I dont suspect to have any issues) Im going to keep them up front and see how big of a tire i can wedge on the back with no issues.

Does anyone know if a 31/10.50/15 will fit the rear. Also is that 2 wide of a tire for our stock steelies.

Ok i was able to upload some pics. heres whats going on so far. Pic one is stock tires that came on the truck when i bought it. Pic to is old fronts new backs. Pic 3 new tire on rear. I want to move it to the front check for rubbing issues. Then see what i can shoe horn under that rear fender with no issues.
I actually just went through this. I just bought 4 Blistein 5100's all around set at 2.0 in the back and 2.75 in the front. The fronts are adjustable. I was told by Extreme Truck Stuff on St. Johns Bluff, I could clear 285/70/17 on the stock rims. I tried putting on some Goodyear Duratracs and they ended up rubbing pretty bad on the "stock UCA's" so I down graded to 265/70/17 BFG all-terrains. And there is no rubbing at all even at full lock. I ended up putting 55,000 miles on the stock tires. Next I think I gonna get some Total Chaos UCAs. The truck rides a lot stiffer but I don't really notice it and it feels 4" higher

If you have "base access" and can get on Camp Blanding. There is TONs of trails on the south side of the camp towards Keystone. I remember driving back there last year and had to pull over for a national guard training convoy of Humvees to pass. They all looked at me funny. Lol I was running stock tires and ended up turing around out by "Lowe Lake" on some humvee trail as the ruts were too deep and it was mostly sand. It was kinda hard navigating with GPS as there is limited to no cell reception.

No such thing as setting rear 5100s at 2", they are not adjustable,, there is no way to get lift from rear shocks. And I believe the front only goes to 2.5".

The front are max'd out at 2.75 (adjustable) and the rear (non adjustable) comes in either 1.0 and 2.0. They were both the same price so I went with the 2.0's. Don't get me wrong the ride is almost too stiff. There is 2" blocks on the rear. About to swap those out for a AAL

Good day of fishing Friday on the river. I went down to the end of Baymeadows near Hooters and put in the kayak. Caught some nice trout and the weather couldn't have been better.
