    You mite have to trim the fenders as well. I run a 2.5 with a 1in body and I run 35 BFG's on 15x10 wheels I had to trim the fenders.

    They'll fit for driving on the road. You should probably do some trimming for when you go wheelin.

    First i'll say
    WELCOME to the board /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
    they will fit for the road, but trimming may have to be done if you plan on wheeling. The wheel well openings in the front are only 35" wide. so they may hit when compressed and turning.

    Hell, 33s will rub even with a 6" lift if you flex it enough. No tire really clears IMO unless you can flex it all the way and stuff the tire all the way in the fender. I guess unless you lower your bumpstops and limit your flex.

    [/ QUOTE ] true, your suspension plays a big part in it. i rub my 36"s a little with with stiff A$$ pro-crap 4" springs and a 2" body lift.

    You could fit 40's without the body lift. Its just how bad you want it. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
