Well...that's partially true. My cousin put a set on his 2015 Jeep Wrangler less than a 1000 miles ago. He was trading it in today on a car (long story) and did not want the dealer to get the tires. So...I gave him my 4 stock tires to swap on to his truck. I took his 5 BFG's for $600 even after paying for mounting and balancing. I'll sell the 5th tire I don't need for a total upgrade cost of around $400. He called me at 10am and by 11:30am our trucks were at our tire guy making the swap.

Next up is either a 1.5" or 2" level. I can't make up my mind.

Truck looks great with this combo and sits really well! Do you have any type of lift/level kit now?

Thank you. I'm all stock suspension wise. I would leave it as is. I do like some rake, but I'm going to be getting my plow installed soon. I know the weight of the plow frame will pull the front end down some. Be a use of this I'm leaning on just a 1.5" level from autospring. I don't believe anyone else makes a 1.5" Then again I could be mistaken.

Can you post a picture from the back just to see how it stands and tire width.

Makes a huge difference! Looks sweet!
What's the tire size? May have to look at getting some when I pick up my Sport Lariat next week!

NICE ride!!!! Are you having any issues with rubbing with that size tire and no level or lift? Have the new ones changed the way it rides or drives? I'm wondering how bigger tires will affect my mph. I'm in the process right now trying to determine if I can put 275/60 or 285/65 size tires on mine now without having to worry about modifications. I've got the FX4 package and 20" wheels.

I really like the white raised lettering on the tires.

I wish you could get them like that in the 275 60 20 and 275 65 20 but Noooo.

I wonder why?

You can go to http://tire-size-conversion.com/tire-size-comparison/ and enter in your factory tire and the size of the tire you want to see how off your speedometer will be.

It also shows you side by side comparison so you can visualize how much taller/wider the new tire will be.

275/60/20 will easily fit your truck. That's only 1" taller than stock.

People on here have had success with 285/65/20 with no modifications.
