Looking forward to watching your build. Have considered going bigger than 30" tires? Might look kinda small with a 3" body lift.

I don't get it, they just give you the left over then you have to pay it back?? That's kinds dumb to spend it on that stuff or even take it if you don't need it.....sorry, just my 30 years of experience has taught me better.

id go 2" BL and 30x9.50s, just because youll keep your CG lower and the overall weight of your wheels and tires will be less, although youll still be looking at around 60-65 lbs a piece. whats your gear ratio right now?
