My daughter put 31's on an unlifted 1998 4x2 and they fit with very minor rubbing on full lock over bumps. You should be okay.

What kind of offroading do you do? Also, what backspacing did you get on those wheels?

I got the 4 inch backspacing. Only offroading i will do is down some fire roads and thru some little mud holes nothing really major its only 2wd i mainly wanted the wheels and tires for looks.

You should be fine. That's pretty close to stock backspacing really and Candice (the daughter) was using stock 15x7's on her truck. It toughens up the look considerably without pushing the tires out so far they're a problem.

You will lose some get up and go, though. Didn't hurt or help the mileage from what I could tell.

Another one of my son-in-law's has been driving the truck lately and he's beat the snot out of it and it's still chugging along.
