    So to answer a couple questions, no I haven’t had any issues with the tss, yes I had to trim the skid plate and remove the front flap. They are 5100’s on middle setting, with two cb shims on the drivers side and one on passenger side. The truck drives way better than stock and I have seen maybe .5 mpg less.

    I like the look of that size, had no idea Duratracs came in a 285/75R18?

    Must be a pretty new addition to their size lineup.

    Yes, the ridge grapplers also come in that size, but they were back ordered:-/

    Yes I want to see a full frontal of your truck ;)! I am still stewing the idea of new rims and tires or just adding bigger tires

    Looks great, how did they balance out? One of my friends has had some issues keeping his Duratrac 315/70/17s balanced.

    So far so good, they may have to be road forced at a later date

    Looks great! That's a perfect size as well. Probably the size I'll go with next. Keep us updated on those Duratracs.

    Awesome. If you only knew how much debating I have done over this exact tire. Had duratracs on my tacoma and absolutely loved them. Ever since I seen they had this size I have wanted them for the tundra. How is your clearance on the UCA's and are they stock? I have the Toytec/Eibach 3" coilovers so I may be very close to your same lift, and had concerns they would fit. Thanks for sharing the info and pics.

    It looks like you were able to get those in there without spacers?

    Looks great. Well done, sir.

    I have a good amount of clearance all around, the guys at the tire shop didn’t think they were going to fit... but they did! I just trimmed the skid plate about 2”, and took off the front flap

    Those look great. I'm curious how much space you have between the tire and UCA?

    Any update after having this size in regard to power, rubbing, or mpg now that you've had them for a few months now? thanks

    I've had them on mine for close to 5k miles. Just ran 3500 miles to Banff/Jasper and back to CO. Had some rubbing with Fox 2.5 DSC and JBA UCAs. But all good now. What pressure do you run?

    I’m averaging 15mpg so far, no rubbing still, and I honestly didn’t notice a large drop in power, maybe a smidge, but not a lot.

    Had mine on for about 3k miles so far. Toytec/Eibach 3&1 with stock UCA's. Alignment in spec. Slight loss on power, but not very noticeable. Had to remove the little front flap and trim skid plate corner. Very slight rub full lock in reverse, but that is all. Finger width clearance on UCA. MPG is 12, but I live in the mountains and climb 3 on my way to work everyday. Definitely recommend and wouldn't go back. Need to get pics uploaded at some point.

    Edit: Pic below.

    This looks great! I'm hoping to install OME BP-51 and the SPC UCA, with a Dakar spring pack, on my 2018 LTD. Hopefully the tolerances are close enough to yours, that I can pull off putting the same 285/75R18s on with only slight mods.

    I’ve had the 285/75 duratrac for 4k now. I’m on 6112 coilovers (top setting). Also an Expedition 1 front bumper and RCI skids so no issues with the rub and no trimming. I’m on stock UCAs and have less than an index finger’s width between tire sidewall and UCA.

    It’s a little less peppy than with the little tires, but still has plenty of pep. I don’t have a speedo calibrator and am still registering 15.2mpg.

    Good luck.

    I'm a newbie but from what I'm seeing here I'm wondering if these 285/75s would work on a 12' DC with 5100 bilsteins on the top 2.5" setting?

    I'm not 100% sure but I would think they would fit depending on what wheels you're running. Some tire shops will mount one up so you can try before you buy.
