So, do these fit a stock truck on the stock steel wheels? If not, is there a "guide" on what needs to be done to get them to fit?
Bump, curious as well. I thought they'd fit but I'm hearing otherwise. Anyone know for sure?

You will rub. The general consensus is at least a 2" lift.

Yeah, I saw his response, but then he said to add spacers which (if they would rub to begin with) would only make it worse.

I'm lifted a little but if they clear at stock height, they'd clear with me lifted

What lift do you have? I would check but I'm on my phone, sorry. If you have close to 2", you may be able to clear with some plastic trimming, also some fender trimming at that little piece at the bottom of the fenders closer to the cab.

Who all is running this size with a 2nd gen V6 Automatic? Seems like majority of you guys running this size drive a manual but I am just curious if anyone has experience with this size in combo with an auto. I seem to recall some people claiming their transmissions didn't like the swap in sizes.. Vaguely remember a possible solution would be to flash the transmission electronics to let it relearn the new size. Comments?

Excellent news! Also would you agree I should be okay running my stock off road alloy rims with a 2.5-3" lift and the 255/85r16? Would go with new UCA's as well obviously.

Yes there gateway buckshot mudders. I found them on eBay. Just type in mud blem and the should come up. You can't beat the deal. $556 with free shipping so anyone that wants a set you better get them, I imagine they won't last long.

I run FJ Cruiser TRD black alloy wheels and an ICON lift and all is good.
