    4" and a little trimming will fit them right in there but you'll have to loose the chrome. I ran 35" on my old 75 like this and they polished the frame/inner fenders a little but that was all. No damage at all.

    Good luck, gonna look sweet.

    Ok, the running boards are gonna fly. The Dana 60 and 14ff are sitting on the front porch along with the new front springs and other stuff. All I need is my shackel flip and a few other things from ORD, wheels, and brake lines and u-joints.

    Re: Don\'t think they\'ll fit. YET!!!

    10-4. I am running TSL 35x15.50x15's..... I have the fenders trimmed.. On normal road driving, I dont hit, but when flexing I do.

    I am running 6" superlift superride front springs....

    I had 4" HD Superlift before with 35x12.50x15 Kelly DTR's before. They rubbed some when wheelin but nothing during road driving.

    The 15.50 rub 100 times more than the 12.50's........

    I ran both on 10" rims...

    Re: Don\'t think they\'ll fit. YET!!!

    My plan is to run them on 15x10's with 3 and a 1/2 backspace steel wheels. As soon as the wheels get here I can fit them to the Dana 60. I am not sure on how much I will have to grind off the calipers but they have plenty of meat on them so I don't think there will be a strength issue.

    10-4.

    Ya, there is quite a bit of meat on the calipers... I have heard of alot of people runnign a similar combo on POR.

    Re: Don\'t think they\'ll fit. YET!!!

    Yeah, now that I think about it, my 35s with the 4" were 12.5 (I think, it's been a while). They were also BFGs so they were not fully 35" tall. Seems like they really measured 33-34 or something. Funny how you NEVER get more than advertised but often less...
