    there are people on this board running 6" suspension + 3" body for a total of 9" of lift, with 35s and still rubbing. i would think if you keep it on the street 4" susp and 3" body will house the 37s alright...

    ya alot of trimming front and rear. the tires are 38.5/14.5/16.5s on a 9"(roughly)wide rim. if you look you can see the front of the front fender is gone and the rear of the rear quarter is gone. this is not exactly necissary but it helps.

    I run 36" x 14.5" with a 4" suspension lift and 2" body lift.

    I still needed to do some trimming or I would destroy the edges of my tires and fold my fenders

    do you ever plan on wheeling? 6" on 38's will clear on the street without a ton of trimming.

    but the way i see it, if you plan on using the truck you might as well figure out the stance you like, buy the equipment you want to run and trim accordingly.

    here's my 79 with 4" lift and 37x1250x16 ssrs on 16x10's

    ive only done enough trimming to clear on the street so far. ive basically trimmed back to the inner fender on the front and rear of the front fenders. haven't touched the rears yet. i know ill rub when i leave the pavement so ill be doing good bit more soon.

    yes i do plan on wheeling. i already have 35s but they look little thats why i want bigger tires and the 35s dont rub with the 4in lift only.so what tire do you recommand to run if i put a 2in body lift?

    4" lift with 13/38-16 TSL's on 16x10 rims.........these tires are on the short and narrow side of a "38". Prior to this I had 35x12.50's on 15x10 rims and had to do a moderate amount of trimming to make the 35's fit while flexing on the trail......after installing the 38's I couldn't even turn on flat ground without the fronts fitting sheetmetal.

    If you can currently run 35's with 4" lift and no rubbing, than you are probably only running on the street and can get away with more tire than most. However, even with 6" of lift total I doubt you could get away with more than a 36" tire. Keep in mind that the stock fender openings are only so wide no matter how high you lift it. Also, a very small and almost unnoticable amount of trimming on the lower edges can make a big difference.
