That is one fuuuuuullllllllll fender!
Yes, I'm not bored anymore! Keep the flares whatever you do...
Thanks guys. I like the look of the flares but it sure would be nice shaving 4-5" of width off the truck for the trails. I might just let nature decide... lol
UPDATE - Nov 24, 2014
As promised, I got the wheels and tires mounted today. Pretty stoked how it came out, I think it looks pretty cool being so low. I'm stock height in the rear and +1" in the front with my leveling kit. I might end up adding some wheel spacers in the rear to poke the rear out a little more but it will depend if I can clean the fender during articulation.

I drove the truck around town a little bit and was very surprised at how well it drove. I always hear people say that when upgrading tire size "they felt no difference" but I know thats not true. You will ALWAYS lose power with additional rotational mass and bigger tires, the question was how bad would it be? Very liveable in its current form. Honestly I could probably lock it and leave it with the current gears. It will be a different story when I start adding weight but SO much more driveable than my 80 on 35's or my 4Runner on 33's. Gotta love the torque from the 2UZ!
A couple more:

So far zero rub except at full lock on the frame. WIN.
