Depends on what you want really. People run 33's or 35's with the dl. Personally i like the way my 33's look right now. What size wheel will you go with?
Here is my truck with 33's and 15x10 wheels with 3.63 backspacing

im gonna be running 35-37s on my 2.9. Im having difficultly choosing between km2, toyo m/t, and good year wranglers. im probably gonna go wranglers cuz i get a huge discount, but i hear they hold up better than km2s and toyos for lead foot drivers

Just remember that the new goodyear mt/rs are directional tread which makes it a bitch to rotate. I say get KM2s and be done with it. They're a 50K mud tire
