    U'll probably get some rubbage. Guys with 6" lifts even rub with 35s from what I've heard.

    Body lift is dangerous. Remember the only thing holding the body to the frame is 4 pieces of plastic. Other than that you should clear fine. The issue with rubbing is the cab m

    You'll never get bigger tires to clear with a body lift. Period. The cab mount under the A pillar would have to be relocated. Do that, and you will clear 35's on 6" lift with no rubbing whatsoever. Not gonna happen with your idea though.

    I'm running a 3" lift and the tires I have are positively as big as you can go on 3". 285/70/17's. They're meaty so much bigger than they seem. I trimmed almost all my plastic fender insert out and I rubbed for quite awhile until they wore down a little.

    Get a 6" and you can 'clear' 35's but you will still run into rubbage in the same spots.

    i already have a 3" levelin kit and i clear my 285/70R17's with not problem, no matter what the terrain is. Absolutely no rubbing. How would i not be able to clear 2" more of tire by adding a 3" body.
