18" factory wheels with ~33" tire. These are 17" with ~33" tire. It's about the max you can/should go without lifting it. Tires for a 17 are a heck of a lot easier to get than 18. There a wee bit cheaper as well.
Not likely, but I'll let you set them straight if it comes up I look at it this way, the more of these beaTlocks (i.e. fake) that are mounted, the more they start to look normal and no one will get hassled.
I hope you dont get a ticket for having "beadlocks".
The step rails are more for my wife and step mom, but yah they are kind of goofy. As far as leveling the truck goes--you should have seen the rake before I did level it (The front sat about 3" lower if you can believe it)
Think kindly of me though, most vehicles I've had, all the running gear/add-ons were done with POR-15 with liberal black rattle-can touch up. I guess I'm taking a break from that and putting as many shiny things as possible on this one...
As an aside: lifting this truck costs most people ~$5,000 to do correctly with a 6-8" lift (ProComp and CST). Sure, I could run 35's (maybe 37's with trimming/hacking), but at that point performance would suck, the Nissan spec'd 'Dana 44' would be nuked and need a possible re-gear...just not worth it.
