    Considering these tires over 305/70R17s Buckshots, but I'm worried as to how much trimming I'm going to have to do with only a 4 inch lift. I was planning on installing a 1 inch body lift in a month or so.

    My truck is a DD/mild trail/mud/camping(1000 mile trips). What's the consensus?

    35's shouldn't need much trimming at all with a 4" lift. And with a 1" body lift it'll be even less. But if you're flexing it out all the time, you'll want to trim more just to be safe.

    probably won't be doing a whole lot of flexing with my 4 inch leaf springs and blocks in the back, but this is good news!
