    I wouldn’t let that be my deciding factor. 16.00’s just look cool as all get out. When you air them down to 15-20 lbs for sand, they are going to get better traction in the sand, since your footprint is larger.

    Lots of plans and photos on here about dropped receiver hitches. There was even a winch thread with “hardhead” showing a well built dropped receiver hitch plate. Lots of guys have done them on deuce and 5 tons.

    Also, you might be able to change out your tongue to an adjustable height hitch. Add a drop hitch, and you are level!

    No offense to the 395’s out there, but ... well ... they look tiny. Don’t do that to your rig!

    I agree and there are a number of trucks out here running several differ tire sizes so what you are saying makes sense.. small tire big truck, might as well shine it and go cruise the mall.. ha ha ha ha

    Yes hearing protection is a must, I have seen numerous videos and all said the same thing.

    you guys are awesome and thank you for all the help and advice. I’m sure I’ll have more questions once I have the truck and I am going through it in my drive way.

    No problem. If I had the horsepower I would use them. I especially like them with a 4x4 809 series....but that is another MV dream. Darn it sucks to be cash poor.

    They do last about 50 to 55,000 miles on a 5 ton though. I never rotated them. Where it blew it had a sidewall slice.

    This is the reason I dont run beadlocks in the rear. It is easier to break the wheel down rather than a beaded alligator
