    Can I put 35's under 2 1/2" suspension lift on my 87? How much cutting will I have to do? Will I be able to do any good wheelin with that setup? I am looking for the biggest tire/lowest lift combo and still be able to crawl and mud some. Thanks for any info

    you can put any size tire on if you are willing to part with enuff sheetmetal. I would run 44" with a 4" lift and put the sheetmetal on a massive diet.
    Bob the rear, totally cut out the front and (like posts have shown here) and trim the flare in the front of the rear wheel well. should give the clearence.

    You will definetly be trimming! Alot of guys have a 4" setup and it will rub a bit. It also depends howmuch you are flex'n.

    I would definitely recommend against it. I've got a 4" lift and 35s. It ain't cool if your tires rub. Get at least a 4".
