    I know exactly what kinda truck you are talking about and i don't think you'd have a problem in the back of the truck... but you should be able to fit a 245 no problem. Paybe even go with a 265. That way you'd have about 2 more inches to play with in the front. I've heard those timberns are worth every penny.... those would help too. Good luck.
