Looks great, but the tires look a little small.

those are 265/75/16'*!! the stock size is an unbelievably narrow 225/75/16 lol

285/75/16'* look much better on the truck but they also kill what little mileage i get and take away some power, so i chose these cause they were cheap and already on the same rims i had

when the previous owner had the truck he always ran 245'* on it..this thing could tuck 35'* no problem (after the leveling kit of course)

but instead ill keep the peuny 265/75'* and regear to something in the taller 3 range vs the stock 3.55'* prolly somewhere around 3.75-3.92

THEN throw on a set of 285/75'* maybe even a set of 305'*

it is kinda funny how small those 265/75'* look under the truck LOL
