Interco makes a 27" SSR and a 28" TSL for a 14" rim.

Quit looking in your Haynes manual for tires sizes. lol Go check what size tires is on your truck now. Then see how much more room you have in your fenders before your tires are too big. Then get a bigger size based on that.

And if you are planning on putting a body lift on your truck, put it on before you decide tire size.

on the stock 14 inch rims, the biggest size you can put on there so you dont rub is a 215/70/14 (or 75 i think)

First post here, but IMHO that should work . I know mine has a body lift (2 inch) and a 2 inch suspension lift and 33's fit it... barely. doesnt seem to rub. Dunno how, but they don't.

Hey nightwalker1977, you said you got 2 inches with a body lift and 2 inches with suspension lift. How'd you do that? Thought they didnt make suspension lifts for luvs? i wanna lift mine about 2 or 3 inches without cranking the t-bars. I already have 3 inches of lift due to a body lift. all in all i want about 5 or 6 inches to clear some 33's or 35's. Please reply back. :D

to answer this... (I know the truck nightwalker is referring to) the body lift was done redneck style with bushings from a toyota truck. grind/trimmed as needed. the suspension was done by air shocks in the back and t-bar crank with an alignment up front... and cut fenders.

in retrospect (since I told him to do it that way) it turned out like crap and essentially tore itself apart, that is, the truck itself... but... the lift did work.
