Have a friend that runs 8" and 40" toyo's, know another guy who has 12.5" and 40's. I'm thinking 10" lift, 40x15.50x22 toyos and 4.88 gears. pics would be awesome so i can get some ideas.

Any suggestions on wheels. been looking and i can't decide. I really like the mkw m26's but cant find them. Bmf are expensive and i see them more and more everyday. So tell me what you think would look good.

Also sould i paint the grille and bumper chrome all white???

I have a buddy that runs 12.5" on 40's and 4.56's, I will be running 15" on 40's and 3.73's until next year when I regear to 4.88's...and we have another buddy that runs 15.5" on 40's... it all depends on the tire clearance you want.

Going that tall makes a truck pretty useless. If you really want to run 40s ($$$$$$ tires), then I'd go with cutout flares and a 4-6" lift.

What about it being lifted makes it worthless? I'll drive it everyday and tow with like I do. I paid 1600 for my tires with 95% like tread. Bought Revtek 8" springs brand new with a custom cross member for the indexing ring for 395. Crossover knuckle and traction blocks are next along with drop spring hanger not too bad.

Just looking for pics for ride height thanks

I have my truck lifted 8" right now and it's used all the time. I haul almost 2-3k lbs in the bed to the dump all the time. almost every other weekend. when it gets lifted to 15" it won't be AS much but the only reason I won't is because of the fact that I'll have new paint. it's all in the owner of the truck and if they choose to use it still....either way OUO makes some awesome drop hitches too.....and my tires are only 2400 for all four.

where did you get the crossmember and the indexing ring for 395? I need one but I will probably order the PMF crossmember and index ring for 495.

but still where'd you get it?

if you're looking for ideas for the rear I'd suggest Trevor ( PMF ) traction blocks or even blocks. he has EXCELLENT quality products and even better customer service! he'll take care of you for sure. I just ordered about 1900 dollars worth of components from him.
( crossover steering, 7" custom built lift hanger/shackles, remote track bar mount, extended sway bar links, trans crossmember, trans clocking ring, 8" rear blocks and u bolts ( I already have traction bars ). in the near future I'll be ordering his hub kit ( similar to dynatrac )....probably with taxes.

Nobody makes a 40x12.50. A few offer a 40x13.5, but to run on a DRW you would need spacers between the duals. It also makes your truck completely worthless for towing, which is the reason its a DRW in the first place.

If I was going to make the jump to run 40s, I'd buck up and get a OUO 12" 500 kit.
