Thats what I have on my truck. Rancho 6" lift, 33" Nitto Terra Grapplers:







I had 35" BFG AT's before this set of tires, and I wish I had gone with 35's again, because in my opinion my 33's look too small. I was hoping that 33's would give me better fuel efficiency, but it didnt make any difference. I'm definitely going with 35's again when these tires need replacing.

You'd get better mileage if you took those Lund's off your tail lights, dumped your exhaust and tinted your windows.

thats kinda what i was thinking, is that 33s would get better gas, but i guess it doesnt make that much of a diff.

Call me crazy, but I like the taillight covers. And no more dumped exhausts for me. Been there, done that. It drove me insane because it resonated so bad in the cab. The tailpipes mellow it out just right.

Here is mine with a Superlift 6-7.5" lift set at 6" with 285/75R16(33x10.50). They would look better if they were 305/70s(33x12.5). My next set will either be 35s or 36s depending on if I crank the lift up or not. They don't look bad on there but I like to run the biggest tire that I can without massive amounts of trimming so my next set will definitely be bigger. The upside to it is I get 19 mpg on the highway.

Those pics remind me of when I first got my Rancho installed... I had a set of 285/75-16 BFG AT's and ran them for a while until I could afford bigger tires.



Ignore all the crap (brushguard, bedrails, nerf bars), they are long gone. Back in the day I thought that stuff was "cool".
