    it's an ongoing thread post joke,,,,,when we start seeing threads being posted up, asking the same or very similar questions, sometimes some of the guys that have been here for awhile will do this with extremely worn out questions,,,,,,,

    I am already running 35's with a 4" lift anyways,,,BTW:D :p: :doah: :haha:

    you cant do that. Thats a no-no. every lift company will tell you that the recommended tire size for a 4" lift is 33x12.50 :deal:
    Seriously people thats two inches taller than the recommended size! thats like putting a small jock strap on (for the gifted) and asking if it chafes!!! If you do put those 35's on your going to hell!!!:angry1: :angry1: :angry1:

    use megabloks. they're cheaper, and they're even cooler, since they mispell "block" on purpose.

    you can only run 33's if you lift the front and rear with railroad ties and homemade u-bolts that are 4 feet long.

    but seriously i got a 4" overall lift and cut fenders... and run 39's

    yes but you are going to need a 60 and a 14 bolt or your axles will break in your driveway.

    stock rims from a 10b will be fine on a 60 with adaptive lug nuts....my cousin the hi tech redneck told me about it.

    Dont get adaptive lug nuts. Get hyperactive adaptive lug nuts.. they stay snug forever! They retail for about 3 bucks a nut at AutoPwn

    Also remember if your going in the mud 10 bolt is the way to go..any other axle will lockup and melt the gears jamming it forever =(

    IMHO 6" Lego lift 42' Irok bias is the way to go.. remember to use a hammer to beat the fenders in so you dont have any rubbing.

    AlWAYS run in 1st gear! Hitting the rev limiter is the key to beating the trail!
