Thats a pretty nice lookling little truck, definately a step down in size from your trade in Ha. I would stick with a 235 I think, it will give you better mileage, bigger selection of tires, cheaper, and alot more common as well.

You're welcome. I think the spacers are probably cheapest and easiest to level the truck. I have been thinking of doing that to my truck also. My truck is just like yours except it's a 2006.

Spindles and shackles are the way to go.

Welcome to TRS...

I can see all the new truck pics (even on flikr) but only the last set of the old truck...which is newer than my old truck but mine is nicer because I'm not afraid of people whacking it with shopping carts (just kidding)...

Not sure if I would have downgraded to a single cab though...you're going to save plenty of money on gas though...
