    I run 35's on my 10bolts. Not a problem yet but I dont wheel it very hard because of the 10bolts. Try to move up to at least 3/4 ton gear at least if you plan on wheeling it at all.

    I would guess about 7-8 inchs ground clearence to the diff. I have 35s on my 10 bolts and they are holding up (knock on wood) they have been on there for about 5k miles, The previous owner had 36s on it best I can tell beacuse that is what the speedo was calibrated for, had 31s when I got it though.

    I'm running 315/75x16 MTRs, they measure 34.5" on a 8" wide rim and 33.5" with the weight of the truck on it and at 34psi. Ground clearance under the front diff is 10.25"; rear is different since I'm running a D60 back there.

    Re: 35\'s with 10 bolts?

    10 bolts will work on 35's. IF you plan on wheeling it hard I would suggest going with a GOOD QUALITY ring and pinion setup by a good shop with an aftermarket carrier like a Detroit, or an ARB. Aftermarket shafts dont hurt either, Moser's seem to be pretty good. O yeah I wheel the piss out of my 10 bolt front, lots of wheel spin and throttle involved and all i have broken is a chitty superwinch hub. I did blow up the rear Govloc, but that is because its a horrible design.

    I beat the piss out of my truck with 35" tires for years with a 10 bolt front and never had any issues. My rear was a 14 bolt though, destroyed the 10 bolt with 31s on the road even before I lifted it.
