That's probably about like what I'll do. I'm thinking 295/70r18 Trail Grapplers. Getting the 2.5" leveling kit on tomorrow and will probably try to get about 10k more miles out of the stock tires if possible.

I saw your question on Dave's "members build" page the other day, but no reply from him. By the way your truck looks BAD *****!!! How or what did you do for the trimming? I installed the AS 2.5" from and 3" block in the back a couple months ago, and am looking to do a similar set up with wheels and different tires. His post was hard to understand what exactly needed to be trimmed. I appreciate any help you can give me, Thanks!

Talk to the shop. They gave me $125 for each of my tires with about 8500 on them. I got the level/alignment and new tires all for just about $700.

leveling mine here in the next few weeks. So torn between 2.5 or 1.5 level. I don't want to be riding with my nose up, but I don't want to level with 1.5 and be .5 inches from level either. ugh

If you get a leveling kit you should receive the rear blocks as well... I did 2.5" in the front and 3" rear. (Rear has 1.5" blocks from factory so your taking those out and only going up 1.5") you will have a slight rake towards the front which you probably want but it's ever so slight. If you put a dirt bike in the back it's pretty much level. I like it because I haul light stuff and I don't want the *** to be sagging when I have my bike in the back or boat trailer attached.

I got a 2" Pro Comp leveling kit with stock rear. Sits a little lower in the front but hardly noticeable at all. I love it!

And that picture doesn't do it much justice. I'd like to get some more pics of it later today.
