    i have 38.5 inch tires on my truck for streat driving and 35 inch boggers for off roading. i want to remove my 3 inch body lift and just use my 6 inch susp. lift. i need to know how much i wll have to cut from the fenders to just fit the 38.5s, just for street driving, i use the boggers for offroad, so the 38.5s dont see much flexing. i just need to hack off just enough to fit the tires. anyone have any pics or know where any are? thanks.

    I run 38x12.5 TSL's with 6 inchs of lift.THe rear should clear with no trimming.The rears of the front fenders will need some trimming for street use.I had too remove maybe 4-5 inchs for trail use.

    You will have to hog out as much as possible with the boggers and 6" of lift. I use 35" boggers and a 6" lift offroad and even with the fenders trimmed UP TO THE CAB the tires mashed and were very very close to rubbing the floor of the cab! NO JOKE!
