Would love to see a pic of the new setup once you get everything installed. Is there a reason why you went with ICON over some of the competing brands?

@wreedsvt don't forget to upsize your spare tire. Our spares are on 18" wheels. If you kept the spare having an 18" wheel, a 290/70R18 would be your closest match to the 295/60R20, but 290/70R18 is not offered in Toyo AT.

I'm assuming you are going with LT295/60R20's?

What is your plan for having a spare tire? I crawled and and looked a while back, and there isn't a lot of room in the spare carrying area for a significantly larger tire.

I dont ever mess with the spare. I leave it as it. Used a spare a couple times with different size tires and it was fine. Just use it to limp to tire shop to get other tire fixed.

Yeah, I could see that working driving around in Texas, but that approach doesn't work at all for me in Minnesota when I take my fishing road trips up to remote places in Northwest Ontario and am in off-road situations with no one around and no cell signal.

I had the misfortune in 2011 of getting 2 flat tires in the same day with only 1 spare tire up in NW Ontario, that was on GoodYear Wrangler SRA crap OEM tires that only had 27,xxx miles on them. After that experience I never drove with Passenger tires on my truck again and went over to GoodYear Duratrac LT's and never again had a flat--and those tires started with a tread depth of 18 and Discount Tire pulled out several screws and nails over the years without even needing to plug where they were removed. I even bought an extra King Ranch wheel from a junkyard in Georgia from a 2010 King Ranch that wrecked and went to a 5 tire rotation to keep the spare the same size as the rest (I am not going to do that with my new truck because that approach made the wheels look like crap after years of rotating them under the truck where rocks chipped away at the wheel).

Just goes to show that everybody uses their trucks a little differently and in different conditions and scenarios. I am actually debating whether I can trust these OEM tires for my Canada fishing trips this summer and I am seriously thinking about replacing all 5 of them with LT's before June--I tried doing that with Discount Tire right off the lot but they would only give me like $30-40 a piece for the take off's so I decided to drive them for the time being (yeah, I know, could have hassled with selling them as new on Craigs List). I also plan to upsize the tires slightly when I do replace them.

Want to talk about Ride quality, this thing went from very nice from the factory, to Riding on a CLOUD! Almost zero bump and jar now felt in the cab/seats. The suspension adsorbs it all. Extremely happy with ICON for far. Also tires fit with no rub.
