255/75r17's fit with flying colors

i did 2.25 inch front lift and 1.75 inch rear lift with 1.25 inch wheel spacers, all pretty affordable stuff on ebay or other sites you are going to want to make sure you have a spring compressor to get front struts in easier i dont do any hard wheeling with this little truck but it is damn good in deep snow and for hunting the tires i put on were a 255/75 r 17 only thing that wanted to rub was inner fender on the front of the wheel well but after a few minutes of looking at it there was spacers holding inner fender back...removed it and put new plastic push pins in now looks like i can go a full inch taller tire and maybe 3/4 inch wider without ever having a problem its looking hard to find a 33.5 that narrow the stock rear shocks worked just fine while my wife drove it but i find they top out really hard the minute you hop off the pavement im doing some research now to find some longer ones and about 15,000 miles away from putting alot more rubber under it im thinking a 285/70 r 17 should fit just fine with minimal trimming of the front air damn

you should also note that any lift spacer that installs outside of the strut assembly will cause over travel and damage the front disconnect and ball joints.
those style lift spacers are mostly sold on ebay.

1.25" wheel spacers are fine but you need to grind the factory lug studs for the wheel to mount flush to the hub.
you get what you pay for....
