    I have searched the forums and still can't find the answers I want so here we go. I have a 14 DCLB MGM TRD sport. This is the lift kit I have: http://pages.ebay.com/link/?nav=item.view&alt=web&id=250853639116&globalID=EBAY-US
    I have 265/70/r17 BFG AT KO (8k mikes on them) with fuel krank 17" rims. I think the offset is -1. I just don't think I have the look I want with my current setup. I feel like my tires are too small and I don't like the sidewall of the regular KOs. (Should have gotten the KO2s). I would like to get a little bigger tire in the BFG MTs KM2s. I'm thinking 285/70/r17 (33s). Would it be as simple as adding wheel spacers and putting the new tires on and getting an alignment done? Please help me

    I think it looks sick! You could probably go a little bit higher, because you have a longbed.

    armor, lift, 35's, prinsu,
    More like this? You're wanting slightly more aggressive tires, go with the 33's and a lower offset wheel. I'm running 285/75/16 with 16x10 wheels. Tires are Goodyear duratrac

    Bowhunter, I installed the same basic lift kit but after installing the 3" front lift I put a level along the truck bed rails and it was perfectly level so I left out the 2" rear spacer. You installed the rear lift and it looks fairly level so I'm wondering whether to do the rear too. Comments please.

    Yes exactly Seth. Looks good. I'd like to keep my same rims and just put spacers so I don't rub the UCAs

    Yea James I'd go for it. Mine sits a little higher in the back but I like that look. Not really noticeable but I do a lot of towing

    OP, your truck looks great in my opinion. Would also look nice going up a size and with some spacers though.

    I'm a touch nose high with the front lifted 1.75", it's hard to imagine that you're setting level with 3" lift in the front. I would add the rear lift...you already paid for it anyways.

    Would like to hear some other people's opinions on my current setup. Do I need bigger tires or does it look fine? Thanks
