    I figured this would be a good thread to see what kind of clearance with what tires yall are getting under your diffs.
    Please post:
    axle type
    tire type and size
    rim size

    Ill start with my pro comp MT 35's mounted on 15x10 rims and a 10b front and a 14b that is shaved to the bottom bolt hole.
    In the front I have 10 1/2"
    In the rear I have 10"

    Ya, but the 14bf pumpkin is way wider then a 10 bolt pumpkin. That is a big part of the hanging up on the 14bff issue beside the lower ground clearence.

    It's usually 1.5" of difference between a 10 bolt and a 14 bolt. You figure it has to be at least 1" different because the ring gear is 2" bigger.
