Icon5 33's or 35's

Ok, Im going to order my tires today. My question is, with my lift what size should I get. I am putting on 3" BL, 3" spindles, 2"aal, 2" shackles, 2" blocks.

Its torsion. The reason I ask, is because I have seen good looking trucks with 33"s that have the same setup, But in my opinion he bigger the better.

Most of my offroading is dirt trails, with some uneven terrain. There is a little mud but not alot. The only problem with the mud is it is Georgia red clay and that stuff is sticky. I found some BFG's and Goodyears for about 185 a piece. If anyone finds any cheaper let me know.

But you already have 2" blocks, that wouldn't make a difference.

For 35s you need to run 4.88 gears and you can fit 35s with a BL but I would double lift it.

Summitracing.com has everything you'll need. Look at the sticky on the Drivetrain section and you can figure out what axle you have.
