Doesn’t look bad at all with 33’s …. I’m not a fan of stuffed wheel wells …. How much lift in the rear with the BDS kit ? And finally, ya think that shark fin would slide into an 83” garage door ?

I had the 4” BDS with 35s and I usually got 12 city and 16 hwy. Now I upgraded to 37s and I still get the exact same mileage although I do think I’m driving a bit more calm now lol.

37’s under a 4” ? Now that’s stuffed !!!

Yep, I do a combined drive and my meter sits around 14.3. My heavy foot keeps the number closer to the floorboard though.

Go big or go home!

@millerdd Are you happy with the 33s? If you are, keep rocking them. If not throw on bigger meat! Brother, it's your way overpriced pickup truck (remember when they were $500 and used as much oil as gas?). Don't look to us bunch of swinging Richards for approval. Make it yours and be proud baby!

That’s great! It’s kinda crazy to me how a lot of people with 33s, 35s & 37s all get about the same mpg. I feel like the gearing matters more than tire size on these trucks.

I will be picking mine up tomorrow 4inch air on 35's on 20 inch wheels. I think a lot of factor goes into besides just the tire size. like rim size, rim width heck even the rim color helps with the over all visual aspect of the wheel and tire combo. Also some tires are bigger or smaller than others even tho they claim a certain "size"

CrewCab (CC) and a 6'4 Bed looks balanced on these 5th gens. Since the Cabs are nice and big. I went with the same combo for my limited

Yup, but 242” tip to tail takes a good size garage to put these boys to bed

I agree! I always wanted the 6’4 bed but they’re pretty hard to come by so I reluctantly settled for a regular bed…it wasn’t til AFTER I signed the paper work that I went out to look at it again and realized it actually IS the 6’4 bed 😂 I felt like an idiot but I was super happy!

4” BDS with 35s is 83” tall. I only lifted the rear 2” instead of 3” that comes with the BDS kit when I had 35s and my truck was 82” tall at the shark fin. Here’s the proportions of 4” BDS front & 2” spacer in the rear with 35s 79578B47-50B5-47D2-A482-DC46805F17D9.jpeg

Thanks so much for the info …. I’ll never have another house without an 8’ garage door …. Otherwise I’d be lookin at a BDS 6” and 325/60R20’s
