    I'm getting all new swamper tsl/sx tires and was wondering if anyone had 38-12.5-15s on a rig with only a 4 inch lift... I know I need to trim my fenders but will they fit without going bigger? Also, what gears should I go for, right now I have a 350 turbo tranny and a 205 transfer case, 35 inch tires and need more power... any info would help... thanks in advace..

    IMHO yer gonna have to trim the sheeitz out of the fenders to fit them without rubbing if you plan to wheel at all..... and if you rock crawl with them get some 5.38 gears yeehaw! [​IMG]

    You're going to need at least 4.56 gears I'd say. Just because you didn't mention your rearend gear I'm thinking that it's not quite 4.56.

    You'll just about need a 3" body lift and still have to trim your fenders.

    I think it would work fine with some triming

    Stuck? Isn't that a bird!
