x2 if you have been having so many transmission problems the last thing you need to do is put bigger tires on it. I would leave it be and either sell it or drive it.

Truck is solid. Just hubs left. They have been bad all along they just don't bother me because they are easy. not selling it soon was the final decision. I am in to deep to sell it. i would be loosing money on a trade in either way i would be loosing 4-5k. Anyways i would rather spend my money having it all done up rather than paying a 5 or 7 year loan out on a brand new truck Get what I'm saying. I'd rather have theses small little payments (investments) into my truck to have it the way i want. (this is how i see it) Either you can agree or disagree.

Yea i ran my 33's before I did my BL. It's tight and might require a small crank but you'll be fine if you aren't flying over bumps or wheeling it. I got my rims/tires before hand. It looks silly to run a BL'ed truck with small tires.

Your front end is going to explode, and your transmission and gonna catch fire and burn the whole truck to the ground. You're asking for trouble

Buy the tires and mount them the day after. You could run them now but you'll need to max your bars

If you're going to go in that order, make sure you have the money set aside, or the tires purchased before the body lift goes on.

There's a Chevy running around my town lifted 5"-6" and has had stock tires on it for a year now, lol.

Korey doesn't have to jinx him.
Either way, buy tires after or before the lift. Just don't drive around in Bigfoot trailer mode too long.
