I ran 285/70R17 with no lift...


Now I run it with a 2" lift.


The 285/75R17 is a 34" tire. And yes... toyo open country MTs are available in this size.
Here are the specifications from Toyo's site:

Ya, the 75 is an inch taller. That's what I'm looking for.

The fronts just do touch the air dam at full lock. I will need to do a little trimming on the air dam. The backs will get just on the inner fender liners at full stuff, so I need to add an inch or two of bump stop on the rear. Currently have no extra bump stops. BTW, i have TeraFlex 1.25 inch spacers and stock wheels.

are those trail or terra grapplers on your rig? i see you said trail, but checked out Nitto's sight (cause I like them on your rig) and they looked a helluva lot like the terra's pictured...
