    New Pioneer stereo, and all 4 speakers with Infinity components. Sirius satellite radio. Deckplate mod done. Door buzzer silenced forever thank God, tinted windows, vent visors, hood protector(bug guard), ceramic pads and new rotors, dechromed EVERYTHING. 2" Lift front 3" rear. Skyjacker AAL's and replacement leafs(and front spacers) from Fatbobsgarage.com. Skyjacker 7000 Hydro rear shocks, those Bilstein 5100 fronts are coming soon!
    The 4x4 shop by me told me with my 2" lift 32 was as big as I want to go. You may get to 33, but a little rub.

    a 265/75/16 is basically a 32 inch tire, so yes........a 32 inch tire will fit stock suspension on the 6 lug tacos.

    Yes. 32"s are the biggest you can go on stock suspension...there will be a little bit of rubbing though.

    you will feel a little loss of power, and loose 1-2mpg's
    But Its not enough to where you NEED to regear.

    i notice the power loss, it was not that bad, I usually try to drive it easy. Also be prepare to get a running start when approaching hills. I loss about 3-4 mpg. I will be re-gearing soon, either 4.56 or 4.88 not sure yet.

    All I know is that my truck has all stock suspension and it's running 31x10.50R15's. I plan on the 1.5" spacers up front and a 3" or 4" block in the rear with 33x12.50R15's

    so, the rear is already 2 inches higher from the factory, your going to go up 4 inches in the back and only 1.5 up front... bad idea.

    the rear will sit like 4.5 inches higher than the front...
