With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

I brought my truck to a local spring shop. They weighed every corner of the truck. I told them that I was looking for 3/4" to 1" of lift, without a harsh street ride. They took some messurements, and I left. Came back a week later, and they showed me what they made. Driver side had a little more arch than the Passeger side, and after I installed them, the ride was PERFECT. Truck sits perfectly level from left to right, the springs gave me 1" lift over the TSB springs, and I still get full flex when off roding. I think they were around $60.00, but I had to buy the longer center pins seperatly. As I had some laying around, it was a non issue.

I put the Pirelli Scorpion ATR's on my '08 DC in April. They have been in all kinds of weather conditions(1500 miles) and so far have performed better than I had even hoped. They balanced with no issues and are smooth running and nearly noiseless. Overall a big 10

Whose bright idea was it to put highway tires on a 4x4? I understand my base model truck probably has a lower profit margin than a loaded out double cab and the highway tires contribute to better fuel economy over all terrains,
but still. I haven't had my truck long enough to try out the 4WD (Quiet! I can't type with all of this booing!) but the factory tires look like they would have trouble with anything tougher than wet grass.

So, I need some input for alternative choices. I must admit I'm leaning towards BFG AT KO's, but I want to run the stock size and apparently they
only come in load range E (!!!). I love the way they look, but I think 10 ply
is a bit overkill for my needs.

Should I just go ahead and put 1 ton truck tires on my truck or should I find something else? I know appearance is subjective, but I love the 'classic' BFG AT look.

i just got the BFG ko tires 265/70/17 in load range C for $159 each $750 out the door installed, balanced and everything from American Tire Depot.
