That'* a great price. Whenever I need to buy new tires for the truck I plan on buying from http://www.treadwright.com

They do re-treads that are just as good as the real thing. This is based on umpteen reviews I've read/watched online. They have a tread pattern that copies the BFGs too! $512 for a set plus shipping. Way better than real BFGs!

I forget, is your truck leveled or is it still stock? If it'* stock you'll probably wanna level it before putting those tires on, mine has 285/70/R17s on it now and they were there when we bought it. It'* leveled though.

I'm getting the tires put on right now, were gonna crank the torsion bars and bring it up about an inch no sense in buying a leveling kit when I can do the bars at home.

Leveling kit, cranked bars, it'* all the same. You'll want to upgrade the keys eventually though, especially out on the dunes. The stock keys can't take the extra stress too long.
