    Your truck looks great...I'm loving the look of the 265 Duratrecs with your lift. Your truck makes me reconsider 33s and going with 32s. Keep up the good work.

    Thanks dave, next set for me will be 285/70/17's though. Not enough tire when wheeling and aired down in my opinion, otherwise the 265/70/17's are great!!!
