    Just want to get an idea. I am thinking about swapping the 37's onto the crew cab just for fun. I need to grind the 60 for them anyway since it is going under the K5:wink1: I don't want to trim the pickup fenders. It has already been clearanced a little (that lip on the bottom is folded inside the fender, but you can't see that part. I know they may rub a little, but let me know how much. This truck won't be wheeled at all just driven back and forth to work. Let's see them:D

    Take a look at my crew cab in the ck5 galley, I've got 6" Rough Country w/ 35 BFG's on 12" wide Welds and no trimming at all. Mine will rub a little in a turn if I hit a bump/curb.

    Next time I intend to go with a wider 36 but I'm afraid that'll force me to use a 1" body lift.

    Yes I know of your truck:wink1: It's what started my V3500 fascination:D Those are on 12" wide welds huh. So a 37 on 10 inch wide with 4.25 bs should be close, but guess there is only one way to find out.:D

    4" and 37s only trimming is the front fangs and rear lower quarters. I know its not 6 but it will give you another look. They are cut to the firewall now.

    It did not rub unless I hit a curb or a large bump and then it hit hard. There was no such thing as a lite rub:D . This thread has pictures of what it looks like now.

    6" and 38's
    [​IMG]

    Only time i hit onroad was jumping a curb passing a drunk driver. I have now cut the front fangs, a little bit out of the rear fenders, and started cutting the back of the front fenders. Waiting to get the rear shaft back in so i can flex it out good and make the final cuts.
