    Get some 33s as the minumum, to make the 6" lift not look so wild. Maybe 35s.

    Noticing the 22re. Not sure if it will have enough to turn those tires effectively? Maybe just 33s. Others will chime in with their experience.

    33's would be fine, 35's would be a struggle.

    I ended up getting 33 13.50s and they work fine didnt see much difference in power loss. They just rough driveing on road cause there super swampers. But its mainly a off road truck only on road driveing is to get to the trails
