Price isn't necessarily a factor lol. If it's a couple bucks more, no big deal.

I'm going to ask a question, which is going to be completely noobish but oh well. Does the front end only have torsion bars to crank? So if I wanted to put 285's on, I just crank those bars and do nothing to the rear? How much lift should I add to the front-end for them to fit?

I may go 285s! lol

You probably won't need any lift since you don't have fender flares. The rear is already higher than the front so your fine.

Oh whoops I thought this was a different thread lol. On your gen the valance is much smaller than the 01+ so you'll be fine too. Redneckstone has the same truck you did and he ran 32x11.5 with no rubbing problems with no t-bar crank.

So I won't have to crank the t-bars to fit in 285's? 32x11.5's are also for a 15" rim.. I have 16" rims, so would that increase chances of it rubbing?

Cool man cool. Doesn't seem too difficult to crank a t-bar anyways, so why not? lol. One last question; about the sizes. When looking at that chart on bfg's website, there's some difference in rim widths.

For example, the LT285/75R16s say 11.4 on 8, while the rugged trails i have now say P245/75R16 9.6 on 7... will those ta's fit on my rims width wise?

I'm guessing; if the rugged trails say they fit on a 7" width. I don't think I'd be able to use them seeing that the 285's say they will fit rim width from 7.5 - 9

I just want to be sure they'd fit before I spent $700+ dollars and have them not fit lol. I have no problem dropping $700 for some good tires.

About running 285/75/R16

Would they rub at all with a stock rim because they seem to have more back-spacing than most of the aftermarket rims you guys run.
