    everyone will tell ya diff. Basically it comes down to the fact they PROBABLY wont on the street, but the first bump you take while turning, they will eat the fender.
    also, please fill out your profile, someone might be right around the corner

    that should work, im gonna hafta do a 2" but my tires are 14.5 wide, so it should work, you could always extended the front shackles 2" to give a 1" lift in the front if you need it.

    I have a 6" lift with quick disconnect and the first weekend out my front tires ate my fenders. I dont know how much trimming is needed for a 4" but light to moderate is needed for a 6". I have 35/12.5 MTR's

    as do i, i was about to rip it out because i couldnt get a bolt back in, but i managed to, took a hour and a half and 3 guys and i was gunna melt the bushing out of the sway bar end, but we got it in, 35X10.50's might get you by, but they might look awful goofy going down the road, of corse that is what i might buy, so i guess you gotta do what you gotta do to get it on. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
