    Forged off road is the place to go for 2.5 rebuild and work - that shop is top notch. They did my 2.5s about a year ago - great guy (Paul)
    Keep in mind, mid perch is easy to do yourself - but will not clear 37s (if you off road)
    re valving is not necessary either (unless your pushing it real hard off road and in that case the 37s will rip your front fenders to shreds.

    Also - the Cooper weighs 66lb
    The Toyo 80LB

    I can tell you from experience, the heavier the tire Will effect your gas mileage more than you think.
    I have Nitto trail Grapplers (78lb) on mine, love the tire but lost 2mpg across the board. We all know that we didn't buy these trucks for fuel economy but if your getting 11.3 around town, 9.3 will shock you

    yep - search 37s on this forum - this topic is nothing new for sure - for a street truck - you can get away with it - off road - gonna hit :)

    Roger that... Have read a ton, but from my view it's far from a consensus opinion. At any rate, I'm primarily a pavement-pounder so I'm g2g.

    Very good point about the weight. Had the Trail Grapplers on my Silverado. Loved that tire but way too heavy... hit my gas mileage pretty hard.
