you'll rip your flares right off of the truck off roading and rub lol

IDK if dave remembers me putting like 4 layers of gorilla tape on my bedside so my tires wouldn't get chewed up by the metal last time we all went wheeling....i was lifted 5" in the rear and rubbed pretty bad when i was in the trails lol

oh yeah i had to trim my valence with a dremel so i wouldn't rip it off at full lock too even with a body lift and maxed bars. (brand new mud terrains have BIG lugs)

here we go again with tire size...but we will play nice..get 31x10.5 with a 33 your flares will be gone. play it save keep the new tires looking new not like Pedro slapping on tape ( i remember.. and you beating the skid) you may also scrub the sway bar

i'd just stick with a 31 if you don't plan to lift it. you could fit a 32 and it will look like daves truck did after we lowered the bed that day if you cranked your torsion bars. i have a pair of torsion bars with 60k miles (less than your 190k ones) you can have for free if you wanted them. they'll give u more lift than the ones you have now since they're not as old OR you can throw in a bit longer of a bolt but i've never done that but know of a few who have

you have more options in both wheels and tires for a 15" wheel but its up to you if you wanna spend the money on new tires. I'll bring the bars on sunday if all goes as planned.
