    I left the overload in. Thanks for the compliment:thumbsup:

    I didn't notice much difference. I drove about 15 miles of freeway and back down the crappy pothole road home.

    But I did go beat on her a little last night and she was rubbing very slightly on the bottom of the flair in reverse so... Time for:sawzall:

    Thank for the nice words sand.

    Hey everyone...been reading and re-reading this thread for days, thanks to everyone posting. I have also pinged several of you guys on the side with questions, thank you guys as well!

    I’m about to pull the trigger on this lift through wheelers on their Black Friday deal. My question now, is what size tire to go with.

    Will be putting them on a 17x8.5 0 offset wheel with 4.75 backspacing. I was originally looking to mount 285/70/17’s but have seen a few guys running into rubbing issues. Is there another size I should be looking at?

    I’d like to “beef” things up a bit, but not fill the wheel well so much that i can’t take the truck off the pavement. Ha

    Oh, and Happy Thanksgiving everyone.

    265/70-17, or run the 285s but be prepared to remove mud flaps, trim plastic, and maybe do a CMC.

    Already riding with no mud flaps and wouldn’t mind getting some of the plastic out of the way. Just really want to avoid getting involved with a CMC. Ha

    Been playing around on tiresize.com and trying to decide if the extra inch in height and width are worth the potential loss of capability when hitting the unexpected.

    You could run a 255/80-17. Those will fit on an 8.5" wheel, are 33" tall, but slightly skinnier than a 265, so you might not need a CMC.

    +1 to both, but also consider if you want to run load C or don't mind running load E tires as this will limit your tire sizing

    Yeah, could someone please hit me with the breakdown on the load ratings? I haven’t gotten that far in my “lift research” yet. Been buried with Bilstein vs. OME vs. Eibach vs. the WHOLE FRICKIN INTERNET.

    That's my setup, with the Eibach lift kit of course. No rubbing except for when it collapsed.

    Sorry if this has been asked before, but how does the ride compared to a stock trd sport? It is just as stiff or a little softer? Also when does the sale end? Thanks.

    It's really hard to describe. Handles much better, imo. Nose dive is eliminated and drives like the truck should from the factory. Sale ends Dec 6th.

    FWIW I had a '16 sport 4x2 prior to my '19 OR 4x4 and found that the sport oem susp was more stiff and firm than I had anticipated when I first got the '16. It was pretty harsh on rebound, didn't absorb bumps and dips as well as I thought it could/should. I get it, it's more of a "street" susp but still. Jumped into my '19 OR and the susp feeling was night and day from my '16. OEM OR susp was definitely way softer and more "bouncy" than the sport.

    Eibach PRO LIFT is like right in the middle of the two IMO. It's firm but provides a super comfortable ride. It soaks up the bumps and dips with confidence, it doesn't have those little rebound bounces as much as my stock OR susp. Handling is much improved from BOTH '16 sport and '19 OR.

    (not sure if your sport 4x4 uses same shocks as my 4x2 tho)
