Agreed. Your truck will look fine with 31s, a BL is cheap and it'll make us happy.

The stepsides look really good with the mud flaps off. Kind of accentuates the curve of the bed. You could also update the tails.

Don't do explorer buckets, especially in a regular cab. I'm 6'5" and I lost a lot of legroom with my Explorer buckets in my extended cab.

i would recommend some easy mods, like for instance one of alon's maglight mount, or possibly some LED door locks...

body lift it also... 31's are god size tires, they won't look dumb... and eventually you will be able to sell them and buy some 33's
