Running stock tire size, LOVE my Coopers, they grip better than my stock Goodyears and ride better too! Plus off road grip is pretty damn good for an all terrain. I got them at Discount with certs for like 220 a tire I think? Been over a year ago, ive put like 20000 on them and still look good. With my gears above 80 I maybe lost like a half mile per gallon, which really isnt much at all, was expecting a big difference but I can tell you cruising 70 75 i get the same

As soon as these wear out I'm gonna go 305/55/20 its .1" taller (basically same) and about an inch wider... But its a 3 ply so their like 330 a piece... Still deciding between staying with these tires which i love, or go to the Trail Grappler

No problem, not sure how 4.56 acts with the new Rams I would ask but seems like they would still be cool! Ya i was debating for a while 4.10 or 4.56 cuz I thought mine had 3.55 stock... I recited screw it ill get 4.56 and when my shop replaced them turns out i had 3.92 lol damn glad i didnt spend that money for 4.10 wouldn't really have been different

FYI if you drive with open headers the O2 sensors will most likely be ruined after the drive. Even a short drive. You need at least a few feet of pipe after the O2's.
