    First world torture is UPS delivering THREE out of four of your new tires.

    I have done some research on the biggest tire to run stock for the pro. 285/75's are the biggest AT, from what others have reviewed. Being in Rooty, sloppy North Carolina woods, I wanted an MT. No problem right? Well, I did a quick search on BFG's site this morning and found that an AT OD is 32.8" while the MT is 33.1". :eek:

    Too late now. I guess we will see what happens once I get that last tire in. Any suggestions if I do rub? I do not want to change shocks on truck. I want to keep it as low as possible. Thanks in advance!

    Nice, I think if youre wanting to keep it low, you'll just need to do more trimming and more than likely a cab mount chop

    Right, I think I may have to invest in a heat gun and try moving some plastic around a bit. Whats the deal with the cab mount chop? Thanks!

    Heres a good thread for the gen3 cab mount chop. It gives you a better idea as to what is needed. But pretty much its just an area in the rear of the wheel well that is a common problem spot that bigger tires rub on when turning. Most who want no rubbing just take a grinder, cut out alot of the mount, and then weld it back up with new fill plates. Its a relatively easy way to gain more clearance in the rear of the wheel well

    you might be real close to the upper a-arm as well. When i measured, i had about 1-1/2" from the a-arm to the stock 265 tire. Keep us posted.

    Yes.
    Hi OP.

    Welcome to the club.....If you want pics or want to see in person what you need to do to the plastic inner fender wells just lmk.

    BTW - no CMC required or major trimming necessary.

    @JimboAnz can attest that they work just fine on my truck and rub very minimally.

    ETA -

    Why does that bed rack look too short?

    Thanks! Yeah that would be great if you could share what needs to be trimmed. Have you had it flexed out? I get the tires mounted today! The other one should be coming today! We will have to meet up soon. I'm in Lincolnton every Tuesday for work.

    Just the way she goes. I have seen some put a long bed rack on a short bed. But the short one is all I need.

    Yes.
    Yep, been to URE a couple times now and gave it a good workout, no issues with rubbing the UCAs or cab mounts.

    I'll PM you a bit later with more info.

    They fit great! No rubbing from what I can tell. Looks to be plenty of room too at full lock! Very excited.

    Yes.
    285's do not fit without a 3" lift, 4.5" backspacing, CMC, and caster pushed all the way forward!!!!!!!!!

    You are clearly doing it wrong...TW told me so

    Truck looks good! No rubbing at all with no trimming? Even all the way cranked in reverse?
