    Nah not at all depending on the lift. I'd go with a lift and if you want to you could always upgrade to bigger tires. :thumbsup:

    I've seen it done before. It doesn't look too bad. Just get some bigger tires when it's time for some fresh rubber.

    Your truck looks great the way it is, but if you want to lift it, it should still look good with those tires as long as you don't go more that 3". With a 6" lift it might look wierd. JMO.

    I think you would be ok with a 3" lift. If you plan on going any bigger then that, I would plan on buying bigger tires. The stockers with a three inch look pretty good.

    I'm planning on getting a 3" lift and running stock for awhile. I've got Rugged Trail tires though so who knows how long they'll last before I need new ones.
