33x12.5R15 on steal rims. Lift is about 3.5” I moved the stock shackle locations to gain more lift. I will add air bags in the future.
MPG is 17-22 but I only have two tanks so far into that range.

31x10.50x15 with a 2" Ironman lift. I am thinking last time I checked around 13 mixed.

Sure I swapped a LQ4 6.0L engine partnered with a H55f transmission. Using stock gearing at 3.73. 70 MPH at 2300 RPM. Air fuel ratio is 14.1 but hoping to tune this down into the 12-13 range for freeway speeds.

35x12.5r16 Maxxis Creepies on Mickey Thompson 16” Classic 2’s with 3.65” BS. I think the wheel is NLA now in these specs. I did the MAF shackle reversal, OME medium duty lift, Bilstein 5100’s, dropped sway bars and bumps, custom fitted an Icon steering damper, Marlin Crawler highsteer (yup SuA with highsteer), cut & turned front axle to set caster at 4.5*, pointed front diff pinion at tcase and ran a DC front shaft, welded on new RS front leaf perches to the axle, extended shackles in rear to level the stance at the end.

35’s, SuA, flexed real well, zero rub any where, tracked and drove absolutely stellar. Cost about $5k plus my time. Best riding and driving leaf sprung truck I have ever been in.

Cheers

Curious, what is your rim width? I have some 15x5.5 rims available but 5.5 seems narrow for a 10.5 tire.

I looked at my wheels, they are 5.5”

So I put on new 31x10.5 r15 Yokohama Geolanders. I actually got a good deal on ‘em and I like the tread. I measured hub center to bottom of fender and I see 2” over stock, though the rear springs are a bit saggy with a full 40 gals of fuel and that 4+ bumper, with little other gear. Next step is to get the rear air bags to adjust rear suspention height based on load. Best, least expensive option for the rear, methinks.
Also, seriously considering powdercoating the OG chrome rims (not shown) black and dumping the AR aluminums.

The 70 series wheels are making a strong presence as 15 inch tires get harder to find in proper sizes.

Same truck, 2 different wheel/tire combos.

Old Man Emu Heavy 2.5" lift with 285/75r16 Nitto Terra Grapplers on 16x8 American Racing alloy wheels.

Old Man Emu 2.5" lift with 255/85r16 Toyo Open Country MT's on 16x6 70 series wheels

Stock 2F with an H55 and 4.88's. Speedo and odometer are corrected for tires/gears and I average around 12-14 mpg. I always drive easy but it's happy at 65-70mph and just under 3000rpm.

Here's my old one. No lift, 31x10.50 bfg at's on stock 15" wheels

Hey @HemiAlex I need to move from 15’s to 16’s or 17’s. Those 16x7 wheels you are running, do those fit w/o any issues and no spacers?

My 60 is basically stock with OME, Heavys on both the front & rear. I like the way yours stands.

They’re 16x6. A 235/85-16 31.8 or 255/85-16 32.8 will fit with zero issues. They don’t need a spacer. I run one, but not for any other reason than looks.

I run 255 km3. Be aware, most 255 available are MT or a really aggressive AT hybrid. 235 had 4x as many tire choices.

I’m on 005/005 heavy springs front and rear. It levels out at about 250 lbs in the back.

426016026203 $157 each at the Toyota dealer last i checked. You may want to shop around.
