    holy shit. and spindles you cannot get for your truck. you would need to get Total chaos UCAs and some new coilovers and some rear shocks and you would prolly need even more than that. if you are trying to fit those helo maxxs i wanna see this happen

    Wow, didn't even know you had a 5 lug. Nevermind, there is no way you are getting 35's under there without serious modifications.

    That little 4 banger with 35's is going to be such a dog you may as well just walk to work. Can it technically be done? Yes. You're looking at major suspension and drivetrain modifications though. $$$$$

    I don't know exactly what ratios are available for your axle but yes, those are the kind of numbers that you are going to need.

    With that being said, if you've got enough money or fab skills, you can turn that truck into anything you want.

    What is the goal of running 35's? If you don't mind me asking. Why not just run 33's?

    That's what I would do.

    What you saved on the wheels/ tires will cost you thousands in suspension and other parts.
