    Only problem I see is that you'd have no fenders or rear quarter panels left /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif

    I ran 35''s on mine for a SHORT period of time with no lift OR cutting /forums/images/icons/grin.gif . I ran them for a long time with 7'' lift in the front and nothing in the back /forums/images/icons/grin.gif /forums/images/icons/cool.gif (teach them stupid prerunners!) Greg72 is running 35''s on his new K5 (88?) with no lift and a little cutting. Check his webshots for picks.

    Wally,

    Here's an 88 with 35's and no lift:

    OK, to be fair I did put in the ORD Zero-Rates in the back, but that was for "saggy butt", not to gain extra clearance. All of the clearance issues will be up front initially. I trimmed both the "leading edge" of the fender and the "trailing edge" of the fender to allow the tires to turn properly and not rub.

    The other disclaimer is that I will never "wheel" this truck, so I'm sure that there would be lots of OTHER rubbing going on, if I did. For street driving, and "mall posing"...this works fine for me.

    FWIW

    yeah now those are nice. I just put 1 tire on the back tonight on the stock rally wheels. Man does it ever look good. I am going to wheel this thing so there will be some rubbing, but i know a guy with a sawzall so i will try to hack out some fender. Thanks for the replies. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    have you considered just adding a zero rate front and maybe a add a leaf rear for a little extra room? this won't affect the way it drives much and would be under $100

    Yeah it looks a litte better now. I wish I had a step ladder... I split my work khakis yesterday climbing into the truck /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif So you wanna fab me up some rock sliders with a removable step?

    To get back on topic, you don't have to trim the rear fendes with 35's. Just the front corners need some work. Just do it... the SawsAll is your friend.

    Sure.....I could do that.

    If you have ideas, sketch 'em out on paper. Otherwise, I could draw up a cool way to do what you want......
