    I installed a 1" body lift from ORD, and new tires on my 1985 K30 Duallie.

    The tires are 255/85/16 (33" diameter) A/T tires. I got all (Qty.6) of them for $680 (including shipping) from this company http://www.nebraskatire.com/. There was a small problem with the tires, but they cleared the problem up right away by crediting $50 back to my credit card and everything was cool.

    I also installed a set of Centramatic balancers on the truck too (cost $370 with shipping) http://www.centramatic.com/.

    A set of 1/4" spacers where installed between the rear tires, in order to make sure the over sized tires would not rub against each others side wall. I got them from this E-bay seller http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/e...ry=42614&item=7968123621&rd=1&ssPageName=WDVW

    I think (for now) this is as high as I am going to go with this truck.

    "That's a big 10-4 there Rubber Ducky." I bet you will be glad to get out of that beerless hell hole Iraq :D. You will get home just in time to go from Iraq's 120 Degree weather to Las Vegas's 120 degree weather, but at least you won't have anybody trying to kill you with exploding donkies and goats over here.
