    Two questions one about how to use search & other on fitting 35" tires.
    I have tried to use the search function and it seems to look up individual words not the complete text. So when i ask the how to fit 35" tires it has no answer or 100's of pages with each word selected out. Not really what i was looking for either. What will it take to install 35" tires with little to no lift. And please dont say ssawall. I know i will have to cut but how much and what is involved, like the inside tub needing cut. If the search function worked for me i would not ask this but i need to know.

    you can fit 35" inch tires easily with a 4" lift and a little bit trimming.:laugh:

    you sound like you don't want to trim a lot. this kit would be perfect for you.
    if you don't want to trim at all, get a 6" lift.:laugh:

    with the 4" lift, you only have to trim a little bit at the bottom of the fenders. i didn't find it noticeable from the pictures i saw.

    for the search, try typing in less words.

    example: type 35" tires instead of how to fit 35" tires.

    I do want to cut. Less money spent on lift = more to blow elsewhere. Like tires and GAS. I just want to know how involved it is to cut the fenders. I know the front seems straight forward but the rear i am unsure of. I will be stuffing the tires into the wheel wells so i dont want jagged metal messing my new tires up.

    to search more than 1 word, put quotes around it... instead of: custom dash use "custom dash"

    run a 4"... springs up front, flip out back.. you can always sneak another inch or 2 with a zero rate or 1" body..

    I used his pics to make a template but have not cut mine yet. With his measurements I do not think it is possible to keep the inners. If you can it is real close I pulled mine out cause I dont run mud. I have a 4" lift with a flip in the rear and I am runnin 37s.

    shackle flip rear (ORD/DIY/etc all costs about the same) and 4" lift up front is about your cheapest.

    Want another inch or two? Use ORD's Zero-Rate springs or a body lift (or both).

    Little to no lift would be zero rates and a body lift... but we all just love the body lifts :|

    Look in the photo gallery to get an idea about what people do to their fenders

    I run a 2" rancho with 35's and I didn't have to trim the inner fenderwell just the "excess" metal on the outer fender. My best tip to you is to trim the fender in front of the tire level with the top of the front bumper. Saves time and looks better when you finally decide to ditch the front bumper.
