Body lift?

I am thinking about getting a 3 inch body lift on my truck and I was wondering what size tires could I fit with no rubbing?

Its not that bad. I had it for a year. Could still get up and go just not 'wicked' fast. You just have to know how to drive and when to shift.

33's and 3.73's and 4 cylinders FTW!

Wasnt that what he was asking?
I think he has 31's right now, and with a body lift, he should be able to fit 33's no?

A good friend of mine has the terra's, but he switched to a set of Procomp X=terrains. The are good in the snow/ice, but they do not look aggressive enough for a lifted truck IMO. I would look at the BFG KM2's or the Nitto Mud Grapplers, or the Nitto Dune Grapplers.
As far as rims go, search till you find something you like, post it up, and then we will give it the Yay or Nay. lol jk, just look around alot, and try searching around here.

gain it is your truck, but I like a meaty tire for a lifted truck.





But 17's would look good with that combo,

I really really like these rims
