The 38s wont looked stuffed but the wider tire should look better. The 40s might looked stuffed but then again I'll run a small 40 and the front still has 2" it can go up. Rear doesnt have any coil spacers so that can go up as well. In the end it'd prolly look just like it does now only a bigger version

The m16 is another cheap option. The BFG 40" weigh 86lbs, like 15 less than that m16. Plus it will probably actually balance hahaha

As for the Toyo, i was told if he seen Toyos on it he'd personally slash my tires...

Right! Their only $800 a tire, no big deal

Its got Kore cvs. Picking up the Readylift tie rods from him and the rear 5165 resovoir shocks. It will get UCAs when it gets new tires as well as the other goodies. Wont do it unless its built right. Damn trck has everything except for engine work and a system! Even withoutthe the engine work Im suprised it's so fast. Truck will move for being so big!!

And for your 2 more inches up front... i would not max those bilsteins if i were you. i would also not run 40s if you plan to use your truck as a truck... You do have those cv's and tie rods and 4.56's (not sure if you have uca's or not) which do strengthen your front end very much, but 40s on a IFS half ton light duty pick up truck would be a recipe for disaster if you ever plan on doing anything off of the road less traveled, your half shafts would eat shit in minutes.... As a pavement pounder, you'd have a better shot!

That statement is really confusing. Why woulsnt you raise them? Not that I am, but say I wanted to raise them up, why shouldnt I?

You also say use my truck as a truck, do you mean payload and towing? Because I dont do either. As for off the pavement, I have been known to bury a truck or two haha.

You say half ton light duty ifs truck is a no go on 40s. Is it because it half ton or ifs or stock components? I only have stock tie rods up front for now, that would be my only light duty ifs part. Btw the half shafts are cvs, mine are chromoly steel. I dont fit any of the criteria it seems. Well I am half ton but Im beefed up aftermarket IFS. Plus the km2 would be 2 more lbs that I have now....

You'll be fine either way imo. Probably be better off with the 40" KM2 than the 38" Mud Graps to be honest. Just depends on what you wanna spend.

Yea, dont let me catch any Toyos on that truck...

Wanna buy another truck?

I'd do the 38" Mud Grapps for killer looks and KM2 for a lighter weighed tire

He sold you his truck and you didn't negotiate for his username to be thrown in for free.
That would be a trip for sure
