    After putting my lift on over a year ago, my bridgestone duelers were finally worn down enough to justify dropping the cash on some new rubber. I went from 265/70/r16's to the 285/75/r16 Duratracs. Will have to do a little trimming of the plastic inner fender, but other that they ride great paired with the OME suspension. I will say, for anybody lookimg at the dueler ATs, I highly recommend them. Never had any issues, got close to 65k miles out of them

    Nothing at the moment, just got her with 235,000 miles. Bringing her back to beauty.
    What gear ratio does your SR5 run? How much did the 285's bog it down? Looks awesome, congrats.

    Thanks. Its pretty close to the cab mount but I don't wheel too often. I will do it eventually, but for now there's no rub for what I do with the truck. From the write-ups on here it doesn't look too difficult.

    Stock gears. I was actually surprised that there was only a slight difference from take off, barely noticeable. I only drove it home from the shop so I'll report back if I start noticing it more. Thanks man!

    What is the stock ratio on an SR5. I think it's 3.73 on the TRD since they come with a slightly taller tire, but I didn't know about the SR5.

    Thanks for the replies guys. I'm pumped, they've been a long time comin. I feel like the guys at the shop thought i was weird because I negged the waiting room and stood at the entrance of the bay watching the process haha. Just trimmed the plastic. Piece of cake with a razor blade, no more rub at full lock, at least on flat land...
