    basicaly i want to go bigger but dont want to change the 4" lift i have. so im going to use zero rates a 1" body and bushwaker cutout flairs. but i have no idea how much room the cut outs will give me. can anyone tell me in an example say a truck running 35's add flairs can you fit a bigger tire without rubbing. i would like to run 37's or 38's i have 35's right now and if i was to get twisty im sure they would rub. by the way this wont be a hardcore trail truck but will see some trails and twisty sections. i know the flairs can crack when bumped but usualy the trails around here are wide enough i wont have to worry. and i like the looks of the rivet cut out flairs.

    anyone else? i dont suppose any one already has 4" with 1" zero rates and 1" body and the bushwacker flairs that can tell me how big a tire will fit? wishful thinking? or can tell me how big a tire will fit with that combo?

    I would think it would depend on the width of the tire and wheel... and back spacing. My 77K20 has a 3in body lift, 2.5 springs in the front (4in block in the rear) and bush wackers. It had 38x15.50 mudders on 16.5x9.75 rims when I got it, they cleared no problem. Currently I have my friends boggers on it, 39.5x18x16.5s on 16.5x9.75, and they barely clear, it rubs a little bit. I would think with a 1" body lift, zero rates and a 4in lift, thats 6in lift and bushwackers you could clear 38s no problem.

    I have the cutout flares and they suck....

    you can cut out 2" front and back of the rear wheel well... although my rear axle wasnt centered.. so I put the wacker up against the rear of the well and cut 4" off the front :haha:

    the front is where it sucks.... you can cut 1" in front and back of well.... that is what I did and I rub like a mofo.... took the fronts off so I can cut out more... gonna end up hacking the flare so it isnt a n anymore but more like a - ... so just the top will be there.. hopefully inspection dont give me a hard time... :doah:

    oh yeah...

    6" front leafs - 40" hawgs on 16.5x12 rims = 38.8" tall

    When I was running 39.5 tsl's on my burb I had 8" suspension 3" body lift, & bushwacker cut out flares. The tires still would rub offroad. The tires bashed in the front fender well :mad: The buswacker cutouts are pos. They are only for mall cruisers. They do not hold up offroading.I took mine off after they split and will now :hack: the fenders
