It looks like a combination 2"body and suspension lift will allow 32's or maybe 33's .Would a narrower tire eliminate
rubbing of the fenders?
And would I have to change the gears in the rear?
I also like the prerunner bumper and skidplate look,anybody have one ? or comments ?
I apoligize if I'm asking questions already addressed before.
Both the 32 and 33 would fit with even just one of the lifts you propose depending on the type of tire and wheel combination you get.
I know of one guy with a D21 (hardbody) that is running 33x9.50 BFG's on stock suspension with the t-bars cranked all the way up. He had to trim very little if at all. I have a 2 incn suspension lift, and I tried a new 33x10.50 and it fits with that and a little trim as well. I only have the 33x10.50 as a spare for now. I need to either reindex the t-bars since after putting the KMA bumper and winch on I lost an inch of lift, or a body lift. I will probably do both the t-bar and body.
A narrow tire (9.50 or 10.50) would tuck the tire inside of the fender provided you are running close to stock backspace on your rims. I am using 15x8 w/ 4 and 7/8 backspacing and my 31x10.50 slide in real nice inside of the fenders when flexing.
Gears would be nice to change, but not a requirement. Also, if you are running 4WD, you would need to change the front gears as well. It will put aditional strain on the driveline and engine w/ bigger tires. Any serious offroading would also have an increased chance of breaking the front CV axles, depending on your driving style and conditions.
Actually what Rob said is right. A slimmer tire (10.5") will tuck in better and on turning radius be less intrusive into the truck's body. I run 32x10.5 Swampers which measure exactly 32.1" tall on my 93 Pathy with a 2" $20 lift... The article should be up on next month. Going to a 12.5" wide tire will require trimming and depending on the true heighth of the tire may require the body lift. IMHO: Get the trailmaster lift. It's more than a ride height adjustment. When you compress you will be 4" lower than you are now. This is probably coming at ya a little late, I'm sorry. I've been extremely busy with work(s).
Best of luck to ya!!!
