    Hey guys,

    I know the "how big of tires can I run with X lift" has been beat to death....

    But.....

    I Have a 3" toytec lift, and I run 16" wheels and 33" tires.... I am looking to go to probably a 20" wheel (whatever deal I can find on Craigslist, Maybe 22", just whatever deal I can find)....

    Anyway, I want to know has anyone ran a 34" or 35" tire with just a 3" lift?? if so, what did you have to cut away to make them fit???? Just curious - I know the right way to do it is to get a 6" lift - but that is more $$$ than I want to spend right now.....

    So..... for all you guys out there with a 3" lift, and 20s or 22s..... what size tires you running????

    THANKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Thanks,

    I have the toytec 3" lift. The front is just the spacer/suspension lift, with the extra lift spring.

    I personally like 3" and 6" lifts. Would love a 6", but they are mucho $$$$

    Several folks have run 35s on a 3". It requires an aftermarket front bumper, and for you to cut your fenders. The actual fender, not the lining.
