    hey guys. i was wondering if any of you are rocking a lift kit with 31s? im on kind of a budget and just thinking about getting some duratracs on stock rims? also i just ordered some fron 5100s and was wondering what coils you guys have and how they ride? right now its a toss up between eibachs and ome 881s. thanx

    had a spacer lift before i went LT, with 31's. it doesn't look too bad if everything else is stock!

    31 is my stock tire size, and currently what i have. you cannot run much bigger, 33's with some good backspacing but you will still have to do a little bit of trim.

    I have the 5100's front, 5125's rear. eibach coils up front, and the all pro expo's out back.

    i had 31s on my truck for a while when i got my 3 inch lift, it looked gay IMO. the second i got money the 33s dropped in and it made it look so much better.

    i can post pics for referance if you want

    mkay. i think ill just save up for some american eagle 185s that my buddy has. greensystemsgo- how do you like the ride of the eibachs? im leaning more towards those because i heard its better to run ome coils on ome 9004 shocks and not billies on ome. but ive also heard two different stories.

    Just installed my OME lift this week, so I probably have a little over 3" of lift at this point. The tires are 31x10.5-15. I was worried it would look goofy, but I kind of like it. i might go to a 32", but that will be it. I want to have full travel with no rub for rock crawling in CO.

    mine did too..

    i hated how my truck looked with 31s, but i didnt want to go to 33s without a regear since i drive fast off road i would lose tons of power..... so i dropped over 2 grand at one time just to go to 33s lol. well worth it

    I'd love to regear to 4.56's , i've got 4.10's factory and am a little worried about going to 33's and blowing a ring gear offroad. :notsure: how strong they are.
