Will 31's fit stock?

Ok, I just bought my 31's. Will they fit in my 2wd truck stock or do I have to lift it first?

i've been under the impression that they do fit a stock 2wd coil sprung truck....but.....they are big compared to stock 28". Most run a spacer or taller springs.

All I want is 31's and a 3 inch lift. I don't want 33's. I already have the 31's that I want. I just want to know if I can go ahead and put them on before the lift. I plan on buying a bl from a member on here.

I have a friend with a 3 inch lift and 33's. I would rather just have 31's. Less tire to move so hopefully not as worse mileage with 33's. That and I don't think you should go bigger than 31's or 32's on a 2wd. There is no point in my book. I don't mean that it doesn't look awesome but thats what I think.

Of course they did, you have torsion bars. His truck is 2" lower than yours is from the factory. He has a coil sprung suspension.

I was wondering the same thing. My stock Firestones are worn out, and I would like to replace them with 31's w/o a lift. How bad is the rubbing while turning?

Got the tires on today and they are awesome. They are so much better than the other ones I had. I will take a picture with my phone when I get the chance today after i get done cleaning the truck. They ride better than my stock ones. Not as much vibration in the steering wheel. They sound good to going down the road. A nice little hum. The truck will look even better when I get that bl from a member. I am like a little kid at christmas right now.
