Welcome to the forum. 31x10.5 is the limit. That is what I run on mine with stock suspension. I run the goodyear duratracs and they seem to be a great tire so far on my dd. I can't really say how they would hold up to "nails and stuff", I try to avoid that sort of thing.

Is it a dd? Do you offroad it? All things to think about when choosing a tire. I did a lot of research into tires before I bought mine. The Duratracs were new at the time so there was not a lot of ratings for them. They were in my price range, looked agressive and were rated for what I needed, DD, rain, mud, etc. They turned out to be exactly what I needed. Great road manners, low noise, excellent rain, mud and even snow (for what little we get here). Take all things into consideration before purchasing.

Yep. JD runs em on the stock Ravines. A wider tire would require wheel spacers or a wheel with more backspacing, like 3 3/4 to 4"

About the only gun forum I visit occasionally is the Ohioans for Concealed Carry site, but I'm really not that into talking about guns as much any more. They're just tools - I'm not in love with them - probably because I have to carry a GLOCK 17 all day everyday at work. So basically - I have what I need and I'll use them if I need to.
