4.5-5.0 bs works with that on RCX kits. The uca's and tie rods would be a must, plus cvs if you use 4wd. Its not thats its 6 lbs heaviers, its the fact its over a 100lbs. Your truck will be screaming for help!! Then you have tire diameter, what gears do you have?

I wouldnt do that setup without upgrading. Hell I wouldnt do 37s, even my setup without upgrading and their 84lbs. Just had to wait bc of the rearend, but had all parts on hand.

Ask some of the bigger guys, they'll tell you. If they aren't downgrading supsension and tires their upgrading all the above My advice, don't do it till you can do it right.

Personally I won't go over 90lbs a tire either

Those are the UCA's I've got, if you're military he'll hook you up too! I like their ball joints over the Kore's as well! Hadn't got tie rods bc I'm waiting on some competition for Ready lift so they lower that god awful price. My buddy has those tires and stock gears and hates his life haha. Ram275's truck is about the perfect combo of tire and lift!

I sure don't. Easy man, even your 3.92(if thats what you have) and 94lbs tires will be horrible All that extra weight and now a ratio of 3.49

Theirs alot of options. Toyo is a good all around tire I guess. Those SSR's will last you awhile. I have 32k on mine and still 8/32 left....thats 35% tread with only 3 rotations and alignments haha
