As soon as I go back outside, I'll grab a pic of my 295/70/17 terra grapplers, but someone will have to photochop the stock rims on it. I've been running around like a clown all day trying to get my bilstein 5100s put on, but theres been come confusion with part numbers and if they will actually fit or not so im a little PO'd at the moment.

Click the image to open in full size. These are 285x70x17 Toyo AT's. Click the image to open in full size. 295x70x17 Toyo MT's. 32.7 vs. 33.5 inches in height. The 295's are also close to 1/2 inch wider. Sorry no stock wheels to show them on.

GATORB8, thats one pretty truck you linked to. LOL . The 295s is the way to go. I do get a very slight rub on the front stabilizer bar at full click. But it is very slight. That truck has the 2.5" level kit on it. I may have lost about 2 mpg with those tires. Its really hard for me to get an exact reading because my wife hardly ever lets me drive it. Oh well, i have the 07 Lariet to drive every day

The Kelly Safari's measured 33 1/3 on the wheel properly inflated. They wree just a little bit taller then a 33/1250/15 GY MTR that was being installed at the same time as my tires, just not quite as wide.
