    Is your truck a 5 lug, or 6?

    I would search through past threads, but my guess would 265's tops without getting a lift kit or a leveling kit.

    With a 3" the biggest you can go is 31". I have 31x10.5x15. You'll have to remove the "black box," but you'll probably end up doing that anyway. It's just a few bolts, and they have no purpose.

    What is the limiting factor on the 5 luggers. Are they rubbing the control arms or just too much stuff to cut? Also what is the balck box? I don't have a 5 lug just curious.

    Not sure what makes the difference between the 5 lugs and 6. Chris can probably answer that.

    The black box is a small black metal box in the fender well, under the plastic. It pops out just enough to rub when you have bigger tires. You take out the bolts, trim the plastic, and you're done.

    Cool man thanks, I was curious as I haven't seen any 5 luggers in person that have been modded in any way.

    Your probably only going to be able to fit a tire 1 size larger than stock with no lift. 265 is a tire width, so more info on the tire is needed, i.e., 265/75/15, etc.
