    They would probably be 285/75/16's that you will need. If you run that big of a tire you will need to do some trimming no matter what.

    If you are running OEM wheels, the 285's are gonna rub the upper control arms. You will either need wheels spacers, or new Upper Control Arms.

    I think the spacer is a Spidertrax 1.25" spacer.

    Yeah. You will be fine, but the rear shocks will top out over speed bumps, and the like. THe front shocks are not up to the task of dampening the OME springs, so it may ride a little stiff.

    Chirs4x4,

    What UCA's do you recommend? Will all of the after market like TC, cambridge, light racing and so on not rub the 33in tires?

    I'm getting ready for the toytec ultimate kit, new tires and new uca's...
