    Hey all! New User.
    Anyway I saw those killer 37x13x16" boggers and must have them. But I'm only running a 4" lift w/35x12.50x15 and slight fender trimming. My question is does anyone think that OffRoadDesign's 1" body lift kit would allow me to run the 37's without any more major body surgery?
    (I am working on Boyce Equipment Dana 60's but now running Dana44 and GM-12bolt)

    Welcome to the site! this place is awesome. I too am looking at getting the new boggers. Im getting a 6" lift(inthe process of building shackles), Im hoping this will fit them, but it may not be enough when flexed. I wouldnt recommend the 37s with only 4" of lift. I feel I will have to add a body lift even with a 6" suspension lift. On road may be OK, but I dont think it will work offroad.

    Even with a 1" body it probably wouldn't be able to have much articulation - upgrading to a 6" with a 1" body would probably do better.


    BTW - let's get that profile filled out!![​IMG]

    I am running a 6" lift with an ORD 1" body lift and the 37x13x16 Boggers and with fender trimming I am still making pretty serious contact when it is twisted up. I think that I just need to cut some more out and it will be OK though.

    National Tire & Wheel has a Fitment Guide that tells you what kind of a lift you need for a certain size. i'd prolly say that about 7-8" of lift would fit them pretty good.

    First off, Welcome to the site!

    The 37's may well if you do more trimming. If I am not mistake Steve, owner of this site, is running about %inches of lift with 37" SSR's..

    Boyce Dana 60's?? Damn, you must have a lot of money to throw away!!! :)

    There's a tire fitment table on the front page of this site - in the "technical" section.
