You can put 32s. Just check and make sure that the tires are not rubbing against anything. Sometimes it happens and sometimes it doesn't.

You need a 2" lift to run 32x11.5 ... 32.10.5 might work.

Mud terrains usually run slightly larger with their larger tread, so you're pretty much stuck at 31s with no lift if you want absolutely no rub.

So the rear shackle lift and a TB adjustment and I could run 32x11.5x15?

You don't need shackles. You could fit 35s back there right now if you wanted.

Yeah...the clearance issues are in the front because the wheels have to turn...the back is never a concern...but it does look dumb if you crank the TB's to fit bigger tires and don't do shackles to level the back to the front.

A few cranks will level the truck. My setup keeps the forward rake. Then there's those that put on shackles and max out their TBs in an attempt to level the truck.

33s, TB crank, stock shackles:
