2012 Lariat 5.0

295/65r20 trail grapplers. I have about 2500 miles on them so far.

6.5" McGaughys lift kit.

These tires have been great so far. Sure they've got some road noise, and sure you can "feel" the road more, but they still handle great in my opinion and look incredible. I had seen people say they suck in wet conditions but I drove home through an awful storm yesterday on some back country roads and these tires did great in those conditions. My old toyo open country a/ts would've been sliding all over the place every time I hit a big puddle.

With lift and tires I lost about 4mpg but brought it back up about 2mpg with an SCT tuner.

Will I purchase these same tires again next time? Absolutely. I get compliments constantly on them and honestly feel the truck wouldn't look nearly the same without them...

My 38's I recently put on! Replaced a set of toyo's that I liked but the difference was well worth it. Imo the Toyo was quieter on the highway (not by much) but it wondered a little. The Nitto holds the road so much better as far as holding your lane. With the toyo it felt like I was constantly making corrections to stay in lane. As far as off road they are both good and you can't go wrong w with either. But the price being lower on the Nitto just puts it over the top!

Is that all suspension lift? Looks like rize, right?

Yes it is all suspension and yes it is a Rize. I have put King coil overs on the front since the picture. To busy lately to clean her up and take some good pics.

So are you at 8" or have you stretched it up? It looks to be around 10" or so.
