    Ok I have a 3" lift, right now running 265/75/16's

    Now I know you have to trim to run bigger. My question is what's the biggest I can run with my ARB bumper? Because it looks like it would hinder on my tire if I get it to big, I don't think I can really trim my ARB.

    I do mild off roading, I think I've only fully stuffed a tire once.

    If I do HAVE to trim, is it possible to trim my ARB without making it look like garbage? I can get pics if needed of what I'm talking about it.

    Possibly, I want something that looks good but still leaves me capable to go off roading with some flex.

    Right now I'm not sure if it's the bumpers that make my tires look small or what, but my truck just looks odd LOL


    Also considering getting some XD rims, as I think mine doesn't have much back spacing... Think mine are .5 off of the stock ones.

    Why can't you trim your ARB?
    All it would take is an angle grinder and 20 mins of your time.

    Should you? Well, if the tires hit it, and you really want to fit the tires, then yes you should.
    I'm not too familiar with the arb's on those trucks, but I don't think you'll have to. I've seen people run those bumpers with similar sized tires without issues.
    Hopefully someone with more experience will chime in.

    Yeah that's a good point, I think I'm just over thinking it. It just looks close is all...


    Time to think about what size I want to go with if trim is needed itll get trimmed!


    Thinking of going with ATs again or maybe michy lt at2s

    Don't do a lot of offroading mainly road but when I get time I go.

    Anyone have a suggestion for tire and size that you'd think would look good? I'll get additional pics up tomorrow how she sits right now.

    285s would look great for sure but look into 295s...little taller and wider. Would look mean! I'm kinda wishing I got 295s right now because with my tubed bumper there's a lot of open space up front. Still looks good though :)

    There was a thread on here about 1-2 months ago. Somebody hitting 285s on a ARB. I don't remember what size lift he had and what he was running for wheels. I'll try and look but keep digging in here too.

    Alright thanks! I was thinking 285s. I'm running stock UCAs don't want to replace.

    Don't think I'd rub until I wheel because of bumper.


    Thoughts?
