    will 36\" swampers fit ?

    I now have a 4" trailmaster lift and 33"x12.5" dunlops and wanted you guys' opinions.....

    I'm thinking on buying 36"x12.5" super swampers, so the question is.....

    Will they fit with the lift I've got ? How about with a 2" body lift added ?

    Any help will be appreciated. Thanx.

    Re: will 36\" swampers fit ?

    I will be trying the same setup soon. I found a set of 36"x12.5"/15 Super Swampers for a good price. Does anyone know how Bias tires ride on the highway. I am also looking for pictures of a 4" lifted Blazer/Jimmy with the tires mentioned above. I know the 35" tires I have at this time rub some on the front fenders. I plan to install a longer set of shackles and taller bump stops soon. I will let you know...

    check out Steve's Project UAV in the project vehicles page at the top. He now runs 36x12.5x16 swampers with a 4 inch lift and minor front fender trimming. the only differance with what you wnat is the 15 inch rims vs. the 16's, but its close enough.

    Just some minor fender trimming for serious articulation situations. The swampers do a nice job on the freeway. Like any large tire they will catch a rut or two but track nicely
