    Ok so I'll be orderin my lift from wheelers sometime this week, pretty sure anyways. So tires will be soon after. I'm goin with 881 and the 10mm spacer with wheelers 5 leaf in back. Anyways, I've heard some good stuff bout treadwright's guard dog mt's, and you can't beat the price. And I wanna run 285/70/17's...but the treadwrights are 33.3". That's pretty tall for a 285, think that's too much for stock gears? Or should I go with 265/70/17's? They're pretty tall 32's at 32.25 so it wouldnt look too bad, not very wide tho. Opinions please :)

    Hey, you're pretty close by. :cool:

    I've got several friends running 33's on their 1st gens with stock gears, with the v6 you should be fine. Even with the slightly larger 33.3. A friend of mine just threw some 295/70/17's on his truck, i'll have to ask what he thinks of it now that he just upgraded Friday afternoon.

    Where you at in southern oregon? But thanks for the reply that's what I was hoping to hear :D. 285's are gonna look sick. And yeah that'd be good to know how the 295's worked out.

    Here are some guard dogs I just put on my truck. They seem nice so far, except for one of them has a leak in the sidewall and they are sending me a new tire this week. Be sure to check your local laws for retreads. I found out after mine were mounted that in CO it's illegal to have retreads on the front of your vehicle, so hopefully I dont get pulled over and have a nosy cop. They dont put it on their website so you might want to check that. I put on eibach 3" springs and a custom leaf pack. I rub on my front mud flaps a little and at full lock I rub the frame a little and I have 265/75/16's with rims at 4" bs.

    285 is the width, not the height.

    Would it make more sense if he said 75s or 70s? He stated the tire size in the original post anyways...

    Those look pretty sweet have anymore pics of the tires? I have tundra/sequoia wheels so my BS is 5"....got some spidertrax on the way though to help with rubbing. I'm still stuck b/w 285/70/17 and 265/70/17's so I need more pics of your tires for convincing lol.
