    My stock BFG's are worn out and I want to buy the tires you did . I'm on mid perch in the front so a little more clearance. Any noticeable changes in acceleration or braking? I will also be keeping the stock wheels. Truck looks great.

    Guys, do yourself a favor and at least do the pinch weld mod. It only takes a few hours to do correctly and will make things safer for your tires and wheel wells. If you are running stock wheels, you could even get into some moderate off roading without any worries. You will gain about an inch of additional clearance that will come in handy down the road.

    Just my $.02.....

    Both "feel" minimally altered, braking more so. After all these really are only 36" tires. My speedo was only 1 mph high at 75mph.

    I'll get a head on shot up tomorrow.

    @daveypetey

    Were you able to fit a 37" KO2 in the spare location? Stock exhaust and stock diff cover?

    I never tried. Have the tire in the bed now. I might be able to give it a shot later this week. I'll post the results.

    looks like next set are 37s.

    i need to build a cage in the bed for the spare, idk why anyone would want to pull the spare tire from under the bed while stuck somewhere offroad. its a huge pain in the fucking ass and i wouldnt wish it on anyone. put your spare properly mounted in the bed for sure.

    I camp out of the bed, so the bed space is a priority for me. The chances of needing the spare are a lot slimmer than using the bed space. I already know it's a bitch to get out but it's a price I'm willing to pay.
