Re: Truck Pics

I have no problem at with them rubbing they fit with plenty of room to spare. The nice thing is they fit on the factory rims nicely. I keep looking at it and thinking that a set of 35" would fit in there with some fender triming. But I think everone always thinks it looks to small and whats bigger rubber.

Re: Truck Pics

Looks good High Sierra, I'm in the same situation as you. I plan on running the 34x10.5 16 on the stock rims and from the flex testing I've done I think they'll fit perfectly under a 2" lift and some trimming.

Re: Truck Pics

Anthony runs 35" tires on 2" lift. He had stupid blockes on all 4 corners though. A decent amount of fender trimming too but since he has blck with factory springs they hit the bumpstops and he can't flex and so they don't hit too bad.

Re: Truck Pics

you would not believe how much I have preached to him about that. When he got 35's I told him there is gonna be more leverage and gonna pop them blocks out and your gonna kill someone. He didn't listen. Now he is saving upfor a Dana 60 front (like he really needs it, just caus e I am getting one) and I told him that 600 pound axle is gonna be even more leverage on those blocks and your gonna loose it. Still doesn't listen. I told him TC 2" front springs are $190 and it will give you tons better flex and ride but it goes is one ear and out the other. I'm debatting about 6" lift next summer when I go bigger tires, maybe if he is still running those blocks I can con my old 4" off to him. I think he is thinking he needs to spend his $$ on other upgrade to make his like Jos and my truck but doesn't realize the safety issue in this. He used to even make fun of trucks with front lift blocks, now he has them
