    i'm thinking of getting some 285/75's put on but i'm worried i will lose a ton of power which the truck is lacking to begin with. Do you guys think it would be better to go with 32's instead or could the truck handle the 33's? Hopefully someone has done this with their 4 cyl and can tell me how it went for them

    I had 33x12.50s on my 98 2.7 auto and it did fine, hell at one point I had 33x14 boggers on it and it still did fine. All I had done to it were header, flowmaster muffler, and k&n air filter...

    i prob won't be regearing so thats the thing i am worried about, i wouldn't be getting mud terrain tires just all terrain so hopefully that will help a little, but it is harder to find 32's than it is to find the 33's and if i went with 265/75 then they would only be 31.5's and i want a little bigger than that
