What are you planning on using the truck for? Offroading or mallcrawling?

toyo all tererains are good, duratracs, bfg a/t's as well.

if your 2wd i would stay the same size, no real use of going any bigger...loss of power, speedo will be off, and less mpg

I like my Toyo A/T's for driving on the road, and they are decent off road, but If you decide to do some trails etc, I would get something with a little more meat on it.

I really like my BFG a/t's, fairly quiet on the highway and also good allrounder for off road in mud or trails and even in a bit of snow, I wouldnt say they wear really well though from mine and a buddys experience. but that doesnt really matter as much to me.
