You can fit 33" tires. Thats what I have. Oh and since that lift is only $700, you can buy tc uca's. New they are like $6oo shipped. But you can get a good used pair for cheaper.

285 75 16 or 285 70 17 with minor trimming.

Get a 3" with the 33's. I have a 2.5 and 265s and I regret it everyday. Online the 2.5" with 265s look good but when I did mine it barely looked different from stock seeing it in person. People who see my truck everyday haven't even realized I lifted it the 2.5 inches. I have seen 285s and 3" in real life and you can definately tell how much better it looks and it will perform better offroad

Theres a few recent threads on this. Basically if your like me, you dont offroad a whole bunch, and you know you want 3" of lift and dont need the adjustableness, go with the OME.

Do you have the 16" or 17"?

I am getting the 2.5" and was thinking about the 265/70/17's. I would like to get 285/70/17's but don't want rubbing problems.
