    1ST OFF THANKS FOR YOUR SERVICE. I often say it but I could never do the work that you guys do! They are great. People either love em or hate em and Im on the love side. They are loud going down the road at 60+ it sounds like a high pitched jet going by. I use my truck like a giant toy and so far have only been stuck one time with them. They will dig until you are buried to the frame which is a curse and a blessing. The one time I did get stuck was because I just didnt have enough power to keep them turning as fast as I needed in 3' of snow. Now that its winter in Iowa they are even doing pretty well on the ice. Over all they are probably the best tire for a truck that mileage isnt the goal on. The only complaint I have is that since the lugs are sooo deep and soft they seem to float or be a little more squishy than my BFG's did. Nothing major but I did notice the truck seems to float a bit more going down the highway, but you get used to it. You will love them!

    They will for sure have to do the toe adjustment and Camber. Typically anytime you "move" suspension components it will pull the tires inward at the bottom so Camber is always wack. On your truck they will have to use either cam bolts or nuts to correct it if its too bad. Generally this only runs $30-45 per side for the new hardware and install (way more expensive than what it should be). The toe is just set by turning the tie rod adjuster in or out. So worst case scenario....they will have to replace the cam bolt/nut but on most of the 04-07s they usually do have to so Id say probably expect it. Shouldnt be anything too hard or far out of wack if you used the leveling kit. Did quite a few of those back in the day and they are a cake walk but do require new hardware to get it all straitened back out.

    What are all the mods that you have made to your suspension on the truck to get it where it is currently?
