In the end its still a truck, but I dont want to feel like im bouncing down the road like one of the stance nation turds either.

Potholes and such now aren't already the most fun. gonna need new rubber before I can afford a real lift, so was thinking about 285s-305s and going up an inch or two on height

Here is the lift I got with actual leveling kit but is why I ended up replacing axles twice and got a real lift
I seen a truck today that looks damn near identical to your truck in Virginia. lol Looks great.

On the post I sent with my truck and a leveling kit I had 305/70s and they fit nice and since they were nitto dune grapplers they were the best ride I've ever seen on any of my trucks
