Good Bye \'98 Sub, Hello 2005 2500HD CrewCab!

I am getting rid of my beloved '98 Suburban and getting a truck. I have purchased a 2005 2500HD WT with a 6.0l, 4.10 gears, and locking rear diff. I am looking for suggestions on Mods while keeping the suspension stock. I am going to throw on some beadlocks and maybe 285/75r16 BFG AT's. Can you fit 295 or 305's on the 2500HD stock. Any suggestion would be cool.

My buddy ran 305/70 r 16 (33x12.5) on his stock wheels on a 2002 duramax 2500. They didnt rub, even flexed up or runnin it hard. He has 35x12.5s [img]images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img] (315/70 r 17) on 17x8.5 Hummer-II wheels on it now with just t bar cranking and trimming the plastic junk under the bumper. The only thing they hit is the plastic inner fenderwell whnen your beating it, but thay can be held back with zip ties.

I have been looking at the Offroad Unlimited 2" leveling kit to bring the nose up. I am also thinking about Rickson 19.5" wheels and tires... We will see. Gotta get the Line-X done and get a feel for the truck.
