After switching over to 31s, did the truck feel a little bigger? Did it handle any different? How noticable was it when driving, or did it not make that big of a difference.

I didn't switch over, the truck came with them when I bought it in May of this year. I got her on eBay from a used car dealer near Philly.

The truck handles fine and sits up nicely. It is not too tall though. I installed the nerf bars myself shortly after I bought the truck, they just make getting in and out easier on the seats. I think the original equipment on my model year was for 265's which are practically the same size as the 31's anyway. The truck handles fine, the Yokohama's are great tires on dry and wet pavement.

Have any of you guys tried to fit 32s on your truck with out a lift, I might be able to get some pro comps mud terrains for cheap, any thoughts? I wouldnt mind a little rubbing.

I think that is exactly what you will get with the 32's, a little rubbing.
My 31's only just clear everything they need to clear..

Yes, but you have 3" lift, my truck is stock, no lift. Anything bigger than the 31's and I wouldn't be able to turn without serious rubbing.

Yea the body lift helps out but my tires still rub on my radius arms when I have the wheel turned alot. But nothing serious has occured from it besides some shinny metal. So Im not really concerned
