My truck is leveled out. well actually 1.5 over level. im willing to crank tbar a round or two more and a 1 inch block under the rearend. I want to get trail grapplers or another agressive tire like that if i can find cheaper. So can i fit them? a slight bit of scrubbing wont bother me

My BFG all terrains fit with a 2 inch level. No rubbing at all on stock 17 inch rims.

I either want the 315-70-17 trail grapplers or 305-70-17 terra grapplers. its a tough decision due to the 400 dollar difference between the two

Really? No rubbing with just a 2" leveling kit with a 34.3" tall x 12.4" wide tire. I have a 295/65/18 (34 x 11.5) and they have chopped out the bottom corners of the plastic inner liner of the wheel well. Whatever.

I think they have the GMT 800 and you got the GMT 900 which is why they can run a bigger tire. Those trucks have more wheel well room.

I don't study the acronyms and model numbers, but I do know that they both have different model years than each other and myself. Three different posters, three different years. I've owned all three models and the one prior to that; there was no way I could have fit a nearly 35" tire under any of those trucks, even with a 3" body lift. Believe me, I know the trucks!

Gmt 800 is model years 99-07 GMT 900 is model years 07.5-current. It is possible to fit them tires on those trucks, some brands run smaller than others, and they could have trimmed a lot of metal to make them fit.
