'83 Jimmy. I 1st thought I was gonna do a 2.5" lift and run 33's. Now I'm leaning toward a 4" lift and running 35's. With 35's, will I have to cut the fenders? Will 35's put too much strain on corp 10 bolts or other parts? I've never run anything over 33's. I'm used to running a Jeep.
There are no rocks around here. Just lots of mud and sand. Every 4 or 5 years I go to West Texas...some rocks and mountains.
yes you will have to do minor triming on the front. that should be all you have to do. the axles are a nuther story. I have Know people who have no problems and more who have had problems alot depens on how much you like the right pedal.. good luck
yea most people have said you need to do mods to your truck to fit 33's in them wheel wells, i have 33x12.50s, they fit fine, but are all that will do with the way it sits stock. i could imagine you might have to cut for 35's with 4 in of lift if you flex it, ive flexed mine didnt rub, i dont know i would put the tires on the truck and do a visual check before you cut especially if you have good quater panels.
35s will rub with 4" of lift when stuffing the tire. Tim has nicely polished inner wheelwells and cut fenders with 4" of lift.
35s will be alright if you don't beat on it. The axle will actually last longer if you have a crappy ratio like 3.08 or 2.73 since with a large pinion gear you're less likely to have your ring gear spit teeth.
A pair of channel locks, a dremel tool, and a hammer. She's still a tight fit. If I have the wheels turned to just the right spot, stomp on the brakes, and hit a bump she'll rub. I didn't have any rubbing offroad though.
