    No offence, but the search feature does work now.

    This thread was replied to YESTERDAY, and is asking the same question you are.

    I have run 36's on a stock truck with just simple triming. After that you start getting into the inner fender and soon would be the firewall. But honestly I like a couple of inches of lift just for the extra uptravil. The usual 2 inches for an old stock truck is just not enough.
