First BIG mod, need quick opinion

Although I am very new to trucks, I can't keep mine stock for long. I am curious if this setup is okay for daily driving on stock suspension. I drive '04 XL 2WD.I do not plan on off-roading much, just local trips to the beach. All opinions are welcome. Thanks R-F !

The tires might be ok with out a lift. I ran 31x10.5x15 on mine stock and didnt rub but yours is an inch wider so I dont know. I dont know how long they will last if you are highway driving alot.

Yeah I would go ahead and BL it. Beware though those tires are going to ride like crap on the road.

BL it is going to be a must. Like Trent said "Beware though those tires are going to ride like crap on the road". I had a set and my truck rode like a limber wagon on pavement but was awesome in the mud.

If you don't go offroading that much then don't get those tires. Save up for some BFG All Terrain's. Good on road and off and they last forever.

You will have rubbing issues...and those are pretty aggressive for not offroading much.

^^ get some spindles. There like 300-400 and get 3 inches of lift. Then they wont rub and it will look better.
