    I lost track thousands of dollars ago.
    i don't know about terrible but bigger tires would look better. I rolled on 265's for about 2 mounts after my lift it did look funny at first.

    nah thats cool, no worries. i got mine done with linex....its nice...no chips and its not like rhino liner when you touch it, it makes your hands black. the linex doesnt do that. plus you can get the linex in any color you want. im sure they could even match it to the dark red on your truck. its sick stuff.:)

    It will look OK. I have a 3 inch with 265's but its because I'm to cheap to upgrade to 285's at this time. Mine is a 2nd Gen though. I bet they would look bigger on a 1st Gen.

    IMO, it's not so much the width as it is the heighth, say if you're at 265/65/16, not quite sure, I guess that would look fine, but don't go any smaller. Someone said you're at 265/70/16, so that's good. Width wise, no problem, in my opinion.
