    I tried the search but couldn't find much. Would running 265/70/16 wheels look too small or funny with a 3" lift? I've got the rear tsb done and I'm probably going to go with 5100s all around in a month or so. Does anyone have pics?

    Here is Pics of mine with the Full OME Kit. Its not quite a full 3" kit but I stayed with the stock tires,(265-70R16) cause of all the Hwy driving I do and the bigger tires effected the fuel mileage a lot. I do have taller tires for when I go to the snow or mud. They are 255-85R16 BFG KM2. Good tire.

    Thanks guys. My truck isn't a daily driver, but I don't have the funds to do everything all at once so I'm just piece mealing things here and there. Ultimately I'd like to run 33's but that won't be till my rugged fails wear out, at which time I may consider bigger wheels.

    I believe "bajamoon" was running 265/70/17 with longtravel, and it still looked really sweet.

    But i know what you mean, im kinda in the same boat, either buy better suspension or go with 33s, but im pretty sure im going with the suspension first.
