    No rubbing problems, they're only 9.5" wide though.

    How much noise did the BFG 255/85R16s make? I've been thinking about an upgrade for my truck.

    Tacovendor, did you have any driveline vibration from lifting your truck? I've seen where some of the regular cabs have them from the 1-piece driveshaft. I'm going to look at picking up an '06 Reg. Cab 4x4 tomorrow.

    just read your whole thread!! I have so many ideas for my truck now it's ridiculous!!!! great to see what the 4cyl can do I was almost thinking I should have held out but I'm convinced anything the 6 can do the 4 can do to !!!

    Always come back to check out your truck...love this build! Saw that Jason is updating his front bumper and I am sure you will have to get one to put it through the paces?! I'd be happy to take the old one off your hands:D

    love the truck OP! I have a 2010 regular cab 4x4 and I'm setting it up for overlanding as well so this thread is a good inspiration!

    Just curious though, did you experience any driveline vibrations after your lift was installed? If so did you address the vibrations and how?

    The vibrations might be taken care of with a really good alignment.

    Amen. I hope Tacovendor doesn't mind me copying some aspects for my upcoming build.

    Such a nice setup! I know you have gone with aftermarket rims now but going to stick my stock steelies for now also and go with the BFG KM2 255/85/r16's. Love the clean look!

    Yes it had a vibration, lowered the transfer case 1.5" and that took care of it. The one piece drive shaft is the culprit.
