    I just got a set of tires for free and want to know what I could do to get them under the truck?
    Money is tight and I would rather not fork it over for a lift kit yet. Would fender trimming and
    a 2" suspention lift fit them meats? Anyone else running these tires, and if so what lift/trimming
    did you have to do?

    2 inch suspension, then 1 inch body lift from ORD, then get 4 Zero rate adda leafs, that would put you at 4 inches, with some medium fender trimming you can clear those tires easily

    That's my first thought....SAWZALL!!!OK,maybe zero rates($30),extended shackles($30),and add-a-leafs($40).That's $100 plus you might need shocks($100).For $295 and shipping($50),you can get an Rough Country 4" lift with shocks.Otherwise use the sawzall!Mike

    If your going to wheel the truck then either fenders by sawzall or fenders by tires will happen. That is unless you lift it to the sky and put on 6" bump stop extensions.

    315/75 (35 x 12.50) on 16 x 10's, 2-1/2" lift and standard trimming. 14.50's will prob need more of both depending on wheel offset and how much rubbing you can live with. If its never off road, then never mind.

    Yeah, that too. But it takes the FUN out of it...easy to do (for most), nice clean cuts. At least with a sawzall you can really f*ck stuff up. Shocks, brake lines, bumpers, your arm.... /forums/images/icons/crazy.gif
