Your overall diameter will be about 4" smaller - don't do it.

Do you want lower profile tyres? If so you will need bigger rims.

Correct,
only positive thing will be that the truck will be a lot quicker, but will look sillier.

It would accelerate faster but have a lower top speed and use more fuel.

The stock tyre diameter is 29". If you want lo-pro tyres you will need bigger rims to get back to that 29" diamter.
So a 255/50r19 would give you that 29" diameter. As would a 255/45r20.

Incidentally the L322 Range Rover runs on 30" tyres, 255/60r18, these will work on a p38.

Width wise, I believe you can go anywhere between 235 and 275. 275 assumes you buy a low pro tyre.
You might wish to search this forum for tyre related threads.

JK25.

Do you want to transform your truck into a low-rider to cruise the back streets of New York or drive in high mode everywhere ?

If you want to go the low-rider look than only Dunlop offer a specific tread pattern in a 235/50R18 size which is 2 inches smaller.

Otherwise stick to the original factory specification, including load rating and speed symbol so your car insurance is not invalid !
