What size are you going with? My picture is the current stance with the winter set of 235/75/15 tires on it. Getting some 33's for the summer set.

I just put 32-11.5r15 on mine and they rub at full lock on stock wheels. If going with 33" wider rims would be needed

Stock 235/75r15 2.5" lift


32-11.5r15 with 2" lift

I have been thinking about 33x10.5x15 actually. If I went with 12.50's then I would get some wider rims.

got my alignment done today. the adjustable bushings were needed to align it correctly. the alignment cost me $35 and they charged $50 to install the bushings so i dont think $85 was too bad.

My alignment cost me about $250 after I had the Moog CC844 (F250) coil springs installed.

I think it looks great. What size tires on on it now? I'd much rather have 32 11.50 than 33 10.50.
