    So I'm stuck between buying a lift and buying tires :mad:. I have the stock 245/75/16 on it now eventually i want to have 285/75/16's but i don't want my truck to look like shit in the mean time...

    does anyone have a picture of a 3 inch lift on a truck with 245/75/16 so I can see if my truck will look terrible with a lift vs. just getting 265/75/16 tires.

    this is the lift i want. if it and only installed the 5100's i could keep the stock hight untill i got bigger tires than install the new springs and leafe pack right?

    No pic for you, but imo 245's will look funny. A lot of people run 265's with their 3" lift which don't look too bad.

    Check Craigslist for some used 285's if you don't have cash in the meantime
