    40's! Holy crap! I got 4"/3" and cutouts on my burb, and I think 38's would be the max. Even with those I'd be afraid of rubbin the fenders once in a while. But then again, a /forums/images/graemlins/burb.gif weighs a little more than a /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    with 4" suspension and 3" body I don't think that will fit. I have 7" suspension and 3" body and my 44's hit the flares when I turn. The widest part of the opening in the front is ONLY 40". and the rear is 42". so a 44 will NOT stuff into it. I am raising truck another 2" suspention and am gonna have to trim bottoms of fender flares to get them to fit, turn and stuff.

    My other truck had 6" suspension and no body lift(or body mount's left!) and I had 40's on it. But had to hog fenders alot. old truck pic
