    im really getting the truck progressing a little bit now. I have decided what wheels im getting and the engine mods are starting to really statisfy me for what i want. The next question is before i get my lift (which will be a 4 inch lift) im going to buy my wheels and tires. Is it possible to run 33/12.50/ on a 15x10 wheel with out having the lift installed. I know i wont be able to go do any trails or anything but would that be ok for just driving on the streets for now? Also im going to go cheap i think and get the Kumho venture MT's. I have had some Kumhos on my car and i loved them but they cheaper than the bfgs which would be my first choice if i could afford them. Whats your opinions.

    They'll fit but may rub alittle on the front firewall side fenders when turning. Depends on how much your old front springs have de-arched. Go ahead and get you a set of zero rates and you should be fine.

    They're not much and your prob gonna end up with some in the end anyway. It will definately hit with sharp turning. You can take a hammer to that lip and it won't rub, and its hardly noticable.

    You will rub turning into driveways or parking lots. Get the zero rates. Center pin them for now. Later,when you do the military axle 1 ton swap you can move the axles out. LOL

    SELL IT NOW BEFORE IT CONSUMES YOU!!!!!!!1
