    Like everyone else, 5 lug lawnmower tires are bothering me. :(
    Don't need 4wd down south though, and I'm glad I saved $4k on the truck vs a prerunner :)

    I was wondering how much it should cost me to get a small lift installed (ReadyLift kit maybe? What's best?) plus some 16" wheels, and maybe 265/70R16 or so tires. What else would I need to do with this to do it "right"? Is regearing necessary for that tire size? (Calculator says +2.9" diameter)...

    Also, would a lift mess with the structural integrity of my suspension or anything?

    the only thing with the 15 inch rims is that with the backspacing the caliper rubs the inside of the rim but if you drive a couple blocks it sands the caliper just a hair, but 15 inch rims are cheaper and also 31's are cheaper and wider.
