For now I think these will be perfect. Clearence was probably the biggest issue, I still need to fit my sled in and all that jazz.
Damn forgot about the 3.27's.

These little guys are only .6" shorter than what my 35s measured out to, Im pretty happy with them. It is quite a big tire but even with the 3.27s the truck still moves pretty good. I think the whole thing with the 35s was that i was using huge 15x11 steel wheels, and the tires were wider, this setup probably weighs close to half of what my old setup weighed..gotta go try em out tonight

Buy a set of aluminum ones, sell your steel ones and almost break even.

yeah.. I really need to get a spare when i get back to florida.. I just dont know what wheels to get.. I am thinking about alcoas, but not sure.. When i get to Florida i will get 5 aluminum wheels and a spare tire..

I cant wait to feel the difference in power and gas mileage the aluminum wheels will make over the steel

Alcoas would be too skinny for your tires. If you wanted something along the lines of that style you could do like a lot of other people do and run Classic II's. Haha

Yeah youll notice a huge difference for sure, I can't wait to go 36s on this truck, lift and locker, 4.56s or 4.88s. I'll probably just end up doing 2" coils up front, 4in leafs, take my blocks out, shackle, and some bilsteins all around, and a bodylift. Im happy with these for the time being though

see you have the advantage of having the TTB and not the TB setup.. I wish i had the TTB setup. I guess i will just have to settle for the SAS or a coilover conversion

Got a few more pics for anyone that might be interested. Since the last pics I've added my hids, 07 rear bumper, a stinger bumper from my buddys yota(still have to modify), 15x8 procomp 7031s, 35x12.5 dick cepek crushers, djm shackles, 3 inch bodylift, took out my front sway bar(still have to do the rear), i think that's about it. i think it just looks better with wide tires. These things dig to china once you start getting stuck though..but i like them lol.

Looks way better with the wider tires. Need to get that rear bumper raised and get some lights in the front bumper and it'll be looking great. Not bad man, not bad.
