37\'s under a 4 in. lift?

How do you think 37's under my 4 in lift would perform? I want to keep my center of gravity low. How much fender hacking should i have to do? And wil it look good? I dont want oversized tires on a little lift. /forums/images/graemlins/hack.gif

anything bigger than 33s or 35s is oversized tires on 4" of lift. I'm going to run 40s on 4" of lift. How will it look? I don't care too much. Can it look good, damn sure.

Re: 37\'s under a 4 in. lift?

petersons put 37's with 4" lift on their army truck project. they said it only needed a small amount of trimming. im not sure how much they consider is a small amount. i think there is an article on the truck in this months mag. i dont think it would look oversized. i would do it if i had one tons.

I run that set up and love it. There is a lot more than a little fender trim to fit them however.

I think Peterson's has stiff springs since they have a diesel on top of them.

I hope I can I hope I can!

I'm planning on running 37's and 4" of lift, rear axle will be moved back 3.5" and if I need to run a zerorate upfront I'll push the front axle forward an 1" also. I dont mind the trimming, I have plans for tubbing out the rear a little and flat inner fenders at the body line /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif

Az-k5 Your truck (the white and blue one) only has 4 in lift? That truck is awesome! I want to get those goodyear mt/r also. But I still have 1/2 ton. I have rockcrusher gears and 30 spline upgrade. I think she should be ok. /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif

Here is mine with 37's on 5" I ran these with 4" but rubbed under full flex a bit so I added a zero rate and moved the axle an inch foward no more rubbing /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif /forums/images/graemlins/hack.gif
