Is your truck a 2wd or 4wd? Either way, I would suggest you take it to your local tire shop and have them do a test fit for yah.

If you cranked the torsion bars already you should be able to stuff 35x12.5x20's with a Mud Terrain tire.

Thanks for your Service to protect our country.

I have an '03 with NO leveling kit and i put 33x12.50 and 20 inch rims on it. The front tires do rub a little if i crank the steering wheel all the way. But its only a problem if I have to make a really tight turn. I have heard that with a leveling kit 35x12.50 tires will fit no problem.

Also, right now (through the end of Sept. i think) Pro Comp is doing a buy 3 get 1 free on tires. If you are looking for 35" tires that hold a 20" rim you are gonna drop nearly $400 per tire. So this offer can save quite a bit of cash. Personnally, I like the Nitto Mud Grapplers (thats whats on my truck), they are VERY aggressive, but fun to tool around on, and they look pretty mean.

Thank you for serving! We really appreciate all of the sacrifice that you must make while you are away.

i dont think the 08's have torsion bars. also if you go with a 12.50" wide tire, you WILL need either backspaced rims or wheel spacers.
