    Ok, so I don't do a lot of off roading and I do a ton of highway driving. I want 285/70/R17s on my truck. I don't want to spend a ton of money. What would you guys recommend?

    You can fit the 285's you will have to trim and cut though, as for tires i have duratracs and love them they are a bit on the hi side though, nitto terra grapplers are a good a/t tire as are hankook dynapro atms and they dont break the bank as much.

    The eibach coils with the 5100s , I think that would make the ride better than just preloading the 5100s on stock coils, then just through an aal in the rear shouldn't cost anymore than $400

    Thanks Man!

    If you go to toytec.com you'll see everything you need there, even some other different setups that might be better for what you want them exactly for
