Thats what i was thinking. But you have 31's stock.? Did you have to trim anything or what? What year is it. I have a 2000 dodge durango. The wheel space seems very tight.
Mine's a 99, but my old neighbor also had 31's on his stock 2000. No trimming should be needed, but might not hurt.

You must be talking about the Petersons with Alpine Lock and Safe!

I helped them build their first office in American Fork after an old sporting goods store closed up. They were my neighbors for years before they moved.
