315/70-R17 which translates to 34.4" but measures 33" on the truck.
No lift, and I believe the torsion bars may have been tightened to raise the front a little and the rear leaf springs appear to be sagging a little. The overall effect is the truck looks level.

Ron, I have yet to see ANY tire measure to it's advertised height, even at 100% PSI. Some are off by well over an inch, some fairly close. My 35x12.5x17 FCIIs measure just a hair over 34 1/4"...

Stock size 33" with Cooper LTZ's.
They measured out at 32.75" when brand new.
I have airbags in the back lifting the rear up about 3/4" because I was hauling firewood. Front is stock.

Had Pro-Comp A/T's on my truck (in that picture), and they were great for the first quarter of tread life, or so. Then they go south quickly. I had somewhere between 40-50,000 (mostly highway) miles on them with about quarter tread life LEFT when I finally got rid of them, and they might as well have been completely bald for quite some time. The tread compound hardened significantly (I'd guess so they can make that 60,000 miles they promise) and stopping sucked, starting was dangerous (especially in the wet), and cornering was no fun.

Not sure if their other newer tires are the same, but I don't think I'll be buying another set of ProComp tires.

Thats not bad mileage out of those pro comps. I wiped out a set of grabber a/t in 40,000 kms. Good tires but gravel, and loads of hwy miles destroys any a/t or m/t tires. just been my experience.

nitto m/t are awesome in the mud. My buddy has a set on his 07 qc 2500 ram (cummins). Noisy as all hell on the pavement. I can hear him coming down the rod three blocks away. Nothing like the sound of those big ol tread blocks on pavement lol
Absolute garbage tire on ice tho.

A tire I had alot of experience with is the hankook dynapro m/t. Good in deep snow, decent on ice, and good in deep mud, not too noisy on the hwy, and good tread life. win win in my books

I'm not complaining about the mileage I got out of them, just that their performance faded rather quickly.
