Thanks! They got good reviews on Discount Tire. It'* between those tires and BFG A/T'*. Basically whichever they have in stock when it'* time to get the rims put on.

Found a great way to figure out what this beast could look like when I'm close to done. This is from the wheel website. 10 inch lift in this pic, I don't think I'll go that high.

Welp, just found out it'* not a Z71, but rather a Z85 spec'd truck. Oh well, doesn't matter anyway, since I'm gonna be lifting it and all.

Z85-Z71=14

There'* you're difference. lol


I think one has/is a towing package, while the other is more of an off-road package. I may be wrong.

You're right. The Z85 is the HD-ish towing package. Z71 is the offroad package. The only real difference is the Z71 gets bigger shocks, and bigger sway bar, and skid plates.
