    Even with the wheel at the stock backspacing?

    In that case I'm totally happy with the 32's. I was just looking at it from the gearing being more beneficial to 33's v. 32's standpoint.

    I'm happy with the 32's, I really don't want to go cutting into the truck for bigger wheels.

    In the end, this is my daily driver truck that's 90% used for commuting, hauling, and towing my trailer state-to-state. I'm not doing crazy wheeling every weekend that would necessitate big ass wheels and tires.

    I would say you probably don't need a locker then.

    That could change in the future, like I said I plan on keeping this thing forever and who knows maybe this'll turn into a wheeling rig instead of my daily driver.

    I'm trying to future proof here, since I'm getting the rear torn apart might as well put a locker in.

    @turbodb

    Your website is beautiful, I don't know how I've never taken a look at it before. So much information in such an organized and compact package. I don't know if you made that graphic with the different tire sizes under different lifts, but it's excellent.

    Thanks, I did make it. :cheers:

    Most of the content there is also on TW, but sometimes I need to post things for friends and family, and I think this site would be a little overwhelming for them, hahahha.

    Nothing.

    You've barely used it. Once. In almost a year...

    So..you made it heavier i guess...


    If you don't want to trim anything. Don't start offroading.

    Nope.

    Frankenstein didn't have lockers until 2016.
