    Ok heres the deal. Swapping in 3/4axles 10blt front and ff14blt. I'm gonna run 16x10 wheels w/14.5 width. Either 35"bogger or 36"tsl radials. Six or seven inches lift. What's the max. bs I can run with this combo without any rubbing on tierods and springs. Dnt plan on doing any hardcore wheeling. Just mellow trails mostly mud and towing a boat. Thanks for any help. Pics would be great too so I can see how your truck sits.:saweet:

    You're probably going to end up with 4-4.5" of backspacing.

    If you go with boggers I would suggest the 35x16, when I bought mine I saw both the 16 and 14.5 35" boggers and the 14.5 is puny next to the 16. The 16 has bigger shoulder lugs like the 39.5", the tread is deeper, the tire is a LOT wider, and it is slightly taller too. The 16 is a minature 39.5 and the 14.5 is an overgrown 33x14. I would run a 12" wide rim with a 14.50 tire or a 14" if like that look on the 16's. I would take a set of SSR's if you plan on towing and doing a lot of driving.

    My 16.5x14's have 4.25" BS IIRC.
