Just remember when adding bigger tires you change the overall gear ratio. So a gear swap may be needed to keep the trucks power in line. Also if you tow a lot of weight you need to be careful that the tires you buy can handle the weight load. I have a F350 4x4 dualy that I have pulled way over 20,000lbs and it handle it fine but there may be some ssues with larger stuff. But remember larger wheels and tires puts more load on the brakes also so stoping could be more of an issue with a large load..... I know people with lifted trucks that tow plenty, just remember to buy a tire with the right load rating and don't go over board on the lift.

If you do lift it look at the donahue racing edge kits. You can also goto www.sdhq.com and look there as well for some lifted trucks and ideas. My friend had a 8" lift on 39 parnelli dirts towed a 38 scarab no problem. When you order the rear springs let them know you plan to tow with it. Also opt for the double to tripple shock mounts fron and rear make it a little nice along with some king or fox resivor shocks.

If you want to lift it and go the super swamper route you won't be able to tow anything more than a jetski safely....If I were in your shoes I would even out the front end and put some 22.5s on and be happy.

www.chromewheel.com will give you the best deal

He is right!!! This seems to be the ONLY way to go!!! All the trucks in Key West seemed to be set up this way!! I post my pic.'s!!

I talked to the guy with the White truck, he said he is on the second truck but the same set of tires!!! The tires have 70k miles on them and still look great!!! He has a 6in lift and said it rides great with 80lbs of air in the tires instead of 120lbs!!! (I had asked him if it rode worse with the SEMI tires and wheels!)
