    I have pretty well settled my mind on going with these tires, because I want some extreme mud performance, but I feel like I would probably be pretty lugged down with my 3.73's if I went any larger..........

    I made a bunch of posts about a 4 inch lift, which would be good because, if nothing else, it would get me up above some of the mud.....
    But I was wondering,,,,, would it be a bad Idea to save up for the tires first, and try to clear them with a sawzall and maybe a 1" ORD body lift??? cutting a little would be a lot cheaper than a lift, and I could always get a lift later on so I wouldn't drag through the mud so much..

    How hard is it to clear Wide 33's with a sawzall??????????

    Am I simply retarded? :eek1:

    the width is the only prob i can see. clearing 33/12.5 is easy if you don't mind trimming. i'd try to get rims with extra backspacing to keep the lugs out of the springs and stuff.

    i think you can make it work. post pics. :laugh:

    if you're planning on lots of mud, build a healthy engine.

    i second the healthy engine part i seen several people get new boggers just to find out they dont have the power to spin them meat hooks through the goo
    i have a 4" and slight trimming and have been able to clear 38x12.50 but dont know about wider tires

    I would put on a little lift just so you have some uptravil.... I only have 2" of uptravil on my stock truck and even on the street it bottoms out every now and then. I would put a 2" or so lift on the rig so you arn't constantly aginst the bump stops.

    probably a good idea. I suppose I will just save up for a TC 4" lift, so I won't bottom out................ thanks for the help, sorry I keep on bothering yall with retard questions.

    I'm so indecisive :doah: :doah: :( :eek1:

    I have not cut anything yet, the lower corners on the fenders is all I got to
    cut, to make 33/12.5 fit.. Most won't even notice it is cut.
