    Only 33's on a 10" lift!? You could put some 38" meats under a lift like that! lol. Not sure how that wold work on a dually though.

    Unprofessional looking? I guess that's on you. I don't think so, but this here is the land of trucks. If you lost a customer because they think your truck is too lifted, well I'm thinking yu wouldn't want them as a customer anyway.

    Only buy the truck if you are going to remove the lift and put smaller tires on it. You can sell the lift and put the money towards new tires. You want your work truck to be as simple as possible and cost you as little as possible on fuel and maintenance while still doing what you need it to do. If you need a dually to support your trailer weight and payload then go for it. If you don't need a dually then don't get it. Four tires are much cheaper than six tires. "Work truck" models come from the factory with minimal options for a reason. Look at your budget, see what you can afford and buy a work truck. If you work hard you will have the money to buy yourself a "look-at-me" truck before you know it.
