    well I'm running 31's right now on a stock truck, did the RTI ramp last week and I had the rear stuffed most all the way and the wheel well was pretty full, as in no more than 2" more would have fit, looked like anything bigger I"d have to start cutting, seems like some of you are running 4 sus / 2 body or 6" suspension and haven't cut anything, those of you who have, how bad are yours rubbing

    I ran a 4" kit from Rancho, which was front springs, rear blocks. I also have 35"BFGs and had no major rubbing I only cut the front edge of the rear fender a small amount and at full steering lock the front would rub at compression. But not enough to cut the front fenders. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif Oh and the tires are mounted on 10" wide wheels

    I've got em on 10" rims on 6" of susp. lift and have no bad problems. The only place that rubs at on the front fender right behind the bumper at full compression but it's not bad enough for me to do any cutting.

    Re: who all is running 35\'s and did you have to get the ol sawzall out

    Mine hit is two spots. The rear of the front wheel well and the front of the rear wheel well. I have 35x12.50-15 SSRs on 15x10wheels. Running 3"bodylift 4" Rancho up front and 5 1/2"Superlift springs in the rear. I have already done some trimming and they still rub so I have a bit more to trim. I do some peerty twisty stuff so they only hit on the super flexy stuff... /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I'm running 8" rear/ 6" front skyjacker softride springs, and 35x12.50x15 BFG muds on 15x10 rims. They don't rub in the rear at all, the drivers side front will rub the rear part of the fenderwell when really flexed.

    Re: who all is running 35\'s and did you have to get the ol sawzall out

    I have 35 x 12.50s on 10" wheels with no lift (I have the 1" lift solid 14BFF perches from a member here)> BUT...I wasn't bashful when it came to cutting any metal. I used a sawzall and die grinder/cut-off wheel to "trim" the Jimmy. I rub just a little in the front on the driver's side, but that is because my inner fender hangs down just a little. Don't be afraid to cut...it's what all the "cool" kids are doing!!
