How did you like the road ride? I'm looking at getting a lift for my RR. Cannot decide between a 2inch or a 2 1/2inch lift.
I went 2 inch in order to avoid replacing break lines, hoses etc.. i definitely have more very noticeable body roll, and stiffer ride. I got the stiffer ride to compensate for winch, roof rack and additional gear when traveling. This is not a daily, so overall im pretty happy. One thing people seem to forget when lifting their rig is even with just a 2inch lift, loading the rack or working under the hood can become an issue. I came out of a 79 gmc jimmy on 37s with 6inch lift..everything including driving was a chore. Hope this helps.

One other thing, i definitely need spacer to stop front tires from rubbing on the inside when turning, but i also hope by pushing all four whells out will help with handling.

Awesome. Thanks. We found out (the not so nice way) that we need a lift. Bigger tires will also go in.

How big of spacers do you plan on putting on?

America's Tire in Auburn swapped out my P-metric Wildpeak A/T3W for Load Range E. So far so good but I only have 20 miles on them so far. At 33psi (35psi on dash display) they didn't feel much different than the SL versions. I notice a little more impact sharpness on potholes but it's not bad. I do notice it takes a bit more effort to slow down and maintain speed on steep hills but the change isn't as big as it was when going from the Geolandar 32's to the heavier 33" AT3Ws. That said, anyone going from the paper thin lightweight 30.5" OEM tires to this setup will feel a pretty large difference and not for the better. A tune and new gearing will fix all of that though. It's the price you pay to play... :grin2:

After about 8,500 miles my P285s had about 10 32nds tread left. I used them pretty hard and according to other forum reports the first few 32nds of tread goes fast then wear slows down. With these freshies I'm happy to see about 17 32nds tread depth (claimed is 18) which means much better traction off-road at the expense of a little wet traction on road. I live where it only rains 3 or so months of the year so..... Falken over-rates their tread depth. My P285s were only about 13 32nds when new although they claim 14. I've been very happy with these tires and even the vibration issue was rather mild. It's mostly gone with the new tires but there is still a little there and I have a feeling it's related to something other than the wheels/tires as this truck was never as smooth riding as my old '16 All-Terrain.
