Only if you have an aftermarket front bumper and are also filling to cut your fenders......not the fender plastic, the actual metal fenders....

Most who switch to 35's regear, but some are running them on stock gears....

And yes it's way more involved than just cutting plastic.

Check out these member's builds, they have all fit 35's on a 3" of lift

www.tirerack.com . Ive never ordered from there but i use it as a good source for info. I heard its about 50 cents per pound for shipping. I think those tires weight about 50 lbs each - so shipping will be about $100 for 4 tires

Might want to check tirecrawler.com as well. Crazy cheap prices and just about normal shipping costs, depending on your location.

My 285/70/17's are basically 33's. I think it converts to like 32.89 or something close to that.

Exactly, you removed your fender flares. I am talking about buying fiberglass, and the pinch weld is a given for 35s.

18"x10" wheels wrapped on 325/60/18 Mt (no rubbing)

Must do: Cut plastics/fender, remove flaps
Recommend: chop cab mount (Pic #3)
