A quick update (im headed out of town and wont post up better photos until end of next week)

1. Most everything Desert Rat suggested is spot on. PEROID
2. The tire change is not as bad as everyone says (as long as you have the Time and Tools)
3. 38x14.5’s (Goodyear Wranglers with Kevlar)
1” taller, 2” wider
My springs are in good shape, so I have plenty of clearance.
after I installed them back on the truck the True height is 37.5” ... “BOO”
* they are tucked under the truck very nicely

I ended going to with the new TOYO Open Country R/T tires. Hadn't heard much about them, but I am really pleased. They are a nice blend between a A/T and M/T tire. Had no problem balancing them. I have had many of the factory rubber on my truck, Goodyear MT, GSA, and MTR and have not enjoyed the ride better than with these R/Ts.

I painted those rims myself. They came out alright, my local powder coating shop was 3 weeks behind and I couldn't wait that long.

My truck is so happy to have the runflats gone! I can definitely tell the difference.
