well that lasted only about 230 miles, so i dropped the truck off @ Gas Pedal Industries in Houston and after changing out the stock keys to aftermarket keys, installing shock extenders, and getting it aligned, i was ready for bigger tires

Once i was done @ Gas Pedal i took it to a friend @ Discount Tire and traded my 265/60/20 Good years in and put some $$$ down on the 295/60/20 Trail Grapplers

the leveling keys were made by Pro Comp, and they were PN# 4327
