Hate to say it im not a lifted guy but those would be to big for your truck even if you lifted it more.

I would say like 38's or so and your fine.

yeah but I'll be pushing it really hard to handle those tires. D44 and 8.8 are kinda weak for 40s...

EB D44 and EB9" will do the trick. Run 5.13's.

Why waste the money on 4.88's if your going to run 37s for a while, then your going to want to swtich to 40's after a while...

Do it once, do it right.



Aw, screw it, might as well just get a set of rockwells and 44's...I would if I was planning on my truck mudding a lot.

Mine gets abused on the street alot too.

I mean its not uncommon for me to hook 4000lbs on the back and drag it into town. Its not the same as wheeling but its just as hard on stuff.

Plus I do plan to wheel it more as time goes on.

I think an 8.8 is fine. D44 is plenty, when your towing it's not in use! It's just for steering

I say get 40's and run em until you break something. But you definetly should get 5.13's...

40s are just a pipe dream, i would love to have them but its overkill. prolly 37s is best.
