    35\" tires and no lift?

    Has anyone ever done with just trimming the body a lot. And if anyone has would the rear tire whells be in the way. Its just an idea but if I ever did do it i would still have to be able to drive my truck on the road.

    Stuck? Isn't that a bird!

    do you think when it flexed that the rear tires would hit the rear tire wels because those would have to stay but the front ones i could probally just make some custum ones up.

    I just fit my old bfg 35's on my buddies k20 camper special pick up. He has no lift. We just had to cut the front fenders in the front and back of the wheel well. We just took it offroad and it did not rub at all, but he has 3/4 ton springs so they don't flex a whole he!! of allot. He has really low center of gravity so it actually worked really well. The tires fill up the wheel wells very nice too.

    Yeah there would be a reall low center of gravity this way and if i did do this then when i get my 4" lift i would probally be able to stuff some 39" tires under it.

    I did it for awhile. Tires first, then lift. I trimmed the metal moderatley. Never did take it wheeling like that though. They would have rubbed. But I think that you could trim enough metal to make it work.

    Keep it simple!

    I was running 35x14.5 Boggers with no lift. I did some triming on the front only and it would rub if I turned the wheel all the way. And belive it or not I actually wheeled it... and it rubbed like hell. Here are some pics:
