    Looking back through some old pictures, and I found this one when my truck had the winch and 33’s.

    When we re did the truck I took the lift springs out of the front and put it on 31’s. Stock bumper as well. I have a line on some old 33’s, and recently picked up these wagon wheels. It looks to me like I can clear 33’s, but I still have the extra leaves from the front. So what do y’all think, leave it stock, or go back to 33’s, lift, and winch? I personally think the truck looks more proportional on the bigger tires. Anyway, let me know what everyone thinks. I might even run the 33’s with my stock wheels.

    I don't like the white.
    Prefer factory chrome bumper +rallys. I bet you could clear 33s okay most times without much or any lift but that's too tall. I don't even like ridin 31s / no lift...wish Ida bought 255/70s instead of 31x10.50. That be mo bettah

    At first glance at top pic I thought you had it squatted in the back. Lol

    After a second look I realized that it wasn't. Almost spit out my coffee.

    I like wagon wheels on it.

    Lift and 33s = mo betta than stock height.
    Unless it a true high mile dd vehicle, then stock w pizza cutters for efficiency.

    I sold the rally wheels. My only options right now are steel wheels or wagon wheels. I like the 31’s, but my truck seems to sit higher than most other 4x4’s for some reason. They don’t quite fill out the wheel well.

    It’s not a DD. It’s just a pound around, haul crap truck. I have a Toyota for DD duty.
