Mine too..plasti-dipped but with a twist. Truck is way too murdered out now for the polished look, plus I don't feel like redoing the clear coat. That "twist" I will not be saying until it is complete and pictures are posted! Sorry for the wait..but even though I started a new full time job, I am still going to wait for my free Falkens with 80% tread left...meanwhile I am looking at my late fall/winter tires. 265 75 16 Cooper AT3's

Ok, not to be the sticky thrasher but trimming the tires and body to get tires to fit SHOULD come with the recommendation of gearing change and speedometer fixes as well as driveline changes?

That's a 33" tire, that doesn't look good for your truck. Try one on the front and you'll see.

I'm pretty sure he means the stock suspension. The trimming involved varies from truck to truck, and there is less trimming with the 7" wide steel wheels compared to the 8" wide alloy wheels.
