    ...but its a dick measuring contest or right of passage.

    37s are the next big thing
    Or gears and lockers
    Or crawlbox
    Or LT
    Or solid axles


    ...it never ends






    :)



    Sounds like he should go 285x75r17
    To be exact (.5) in most tires difference from a 35.

    Sure you get more width, but that is what brings the :sawzall::welder:

    My 2c.



    Let the shit storm commence!

    Shit bolted onto other shit, and junk.
    It is 100% possible to DD with minor trim and CMC. Aftermarket UCAs and as much positive caster as possible will help center the wheel. There are numerous factors that affect it all and not just lift will provide a simple answer. IIRC, spacers will exacerbate the need to trim and cut so I would advise against.

    Great post above, I concur 100%. My dick isn't as big as everyone else since I am only running 315/75-16, but they were the right price and I love em.

    What tool did you all use to trim your fenders?

    IMO for the average Joe a jigsaw is the best most controllable tool to use for both the flares and the fenders. Tape everything off, use a compass to mark your lines and go for it. Trailtoys sells the nice pinch molding to put on your fenders and the flares you can sand to a perfect clean edge.

    Just a metal cutting blade. Did fine with me. Used painters tape and went to town

    I was just going to put a max depth block on a cutting wheel perpendicular to the wheel well and then just run it down the fender line.

    Nope, a nice Bosch metal blade cuts the fender beautifully. The trick to cutting the flares is to use the saw at slow speed or feather the trigger. If you keep the blade cool it does not melt the plastic at all and leaves a perfect cut. A wood blade actually cuts the plastic cleaner and stays cooler in my experience.

    A cut off wheel transfers a lot of heat to the fender and tends to lift the paint just a hair at the edge. Later down the road rust bubbles will happen under there. Also not as precise. A jig saw is a nice clean cold cut. Cut off wheel makes a mess of the flare too.

    I just used some 120 on a flexible block to knock the burr off, you can drag your finger along my cuts and never get cut. Another cool trick with abs is that if you ever do anything that turns it white like cutting or sanding simply hit it lightly with a heat gun and it self heals back to its core color. That trick works with scratches in your interior too as long as the abs is a solid color IE: not painted or dyed etc.

    Here is how clean my came out from doing that :

    Nope. Pop flares off then cut one or the other first. You'll have to buy new clips
