    In the last 2 weeks my daily driver (75 3/4 ton) got a set of 2" Tuff Country EZ Rides, longer shackles, shackle moved forward about 3", and a set of 9.00R16 Michelin XL's, and a welded rearend. No trimming, no lift in the rear, and no rubbing! Tires measure 36x10.50 on the truck...and yes, this is my daily driver.

    The truck drives great. Tires are suprisingly quiet.
    The shackles started out being 7.25" hole to hole, but they were too long, so the holes were redrilled about 2" down and helped out a bunch. They were also moved forward on the frame about 3" to give me some shackle angle and help the ride out.

    hadent planned on siping them.... they do very well in the snow. They dont float by any means, but they do great in the slush.

    Just curious, where did you get those tires, and how much did you pay for them?
    when my 33's wear out, and I get some deeper gears, I might seriously think about getting some of those :bow:
    that truck looks awsome :bow:

    I called around and searched the web for an entire day before I found those for White-Rhyno. They arent on the Safari Gard website, you have to call and see if they have them in stock.
