    Bro my 35's rubbed bad, especially when off-roading on the body mount & the Bushwhackers. I ended up swapping them for 33" MTZ. In the end, 35's look better but they rob power from the engine, mileage went from 16 to 14mpg, turning radius is decreased and they're not ripping my truck wheel wells apart.

    I'm still bummed to have taken them off though, cause 35's look legit w/a 6"lift

    FABTECH IS F'ING JUNK!!!! if you want the ball joints to rip out of the spindles because their a crappy cast then buy one but for warning iv installed theis kits for a living on installation instructions it reads "NOT FOR OFFROAD USE" they will not cover it when it breaks and u get hurt or killed because the truck touched dirt!

    Ya, I really dont feel like chopping up the wheel wells. I might have to settle with 33's as well and learn from both of yours story. Im still about $1400 away from getting everything, so still have time.

    Explain this ball joint ripping out of the spindles thing. Looks like you have a 1st gen so is this the case with 1st and 2nd gen Fabtech lifts? Haven't heard of this problem before.
