    Debating on moving up to 35's. what did u do to get them to fit. Any rubbing? I've chopped body mount back a little already. Like the look better with 35's but don't want to spend the money if they're gonna drive me nuts and create problems

    I got 35's nitto mud grapplers... lots of tread. I believe if they are 35x10.5 u shouldn't rub it depends on the lift you have. mine is 35x12.5 and they rub pretty bad on a pro comp mx6 6in lift, im cranking my coilovers to the max in a few weeks to try to minimize the rubbing but i know there really isn't much i can do unless i add an additional spacer or body lift (which im not going to do because i dont like body lifts at all.

    hope this helps a little


    Oh and i didn't cut anything. the previous owner cut a little in the front side of the front finders but not much. i just let em rub.....

    and it only rubs when im taking sharp turns in reverse or making sharp turns and breaking.

    If you're not comfortable taking a sawzall to lots of stuff, it's not worth the headache.

    Every truck fits differently (lift, UCAs, alignment, random tweaks in the build, etc.) so it's unique to your setup. It's simply a matter of mounting them and keeping a saw and large hammer in the truck to take care of issues as they come up.

    You will want to do quite a bit of clearancing, the cab mount is a good start.... pinch weld will need to be beaten back, and you may need to beat the firewall back a bit. Looks like you have a front bumper, so you wont have to worry about much up there. Fiberglass fenders aren't a bad idea either.

    It's a good idea, but it isn't an absolute requirement...

    agreed i haven't re-geared... the 4.0 is pretty good at pulling 35's but you will feel a big difference thats for sure
