    I'm pretty sure you can make it if you dont' flex out at too many malls! /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    You might kill your chrome fender strips, I did with 35's and 2.5". You will probably rub too on decent turns but it shouldn't totally kill the sheetemetal if you take it easy.

    I have a question? can I put 1" zero rates in the front as well as the rear? I already have some for the rear but I have not put them on yet, maybe if I ordered another set I could put them up front for some extra clearance.

    Ya, I have a zero rate in my front spring pack. You will still rub though when you flex out. You will have to cut your fenders to not rub.

    There are pics of my truck I took today that are in my webshots in the Fab section that show my fenders. they are cut back to the rocker box, and this still isn't enough with 5" of lift. I still rub pretty hard.

    I am thinking of putting 35's on with the same lift. Could you post a picture when you are done with your cutting so I could see how much you cut? Thanks.
