    So I will be getting new tires for Christmas hopefully duratracs, and need to upgrade my suspension. (5100s) I really dont wanna worry about 285s (wheel spacers, rubbing) , but i do need ground clearance for hunting. So the question, with 265s, should I go 2.5 and get extra ground clearance , or 1.75 so it looks better and wheels fill out a little more. I know duratracs look bigger than normal tires. So what do ya'll think. Again I dont care about mileage, just need to get through some obstacles.

    1.75 - your alignment will still work and your ride will be better.

    Also, It's kinda pointless to do an extreme 2.5 front lift for ground clearance purposes when leaving the rear at stock height, considering the stock departure angle with all that overhang out there. In fact, if I personally were not doing anything with the rear, I wouldn't set the fronts higher than 0.85.

    i went 1.75 with nothing done to the rear, my front is a shade higher than the back but i'm getting ready to hang 110lbs of steel off the front of my truck so hopefully that will level it out

    Well now, some pics would be nice. I have 265 Cooper ATR's without the Rear TSB and an added ARB deluxe. I want to get some 5100's to bump up the front end. Has anyone that has gotten there's mind posting some pics and what they are set at?
