Running 35's, stock susp. or body lift, pics?

hey all

i was trying to see if anyone has pics of this...

my tbars are cranked and i have brackets in the rear for lift...

i was wondering if it's possible to run 35's with my suspension, or would i have to get a body lift...and how exactly would that look? in both cases?

thanks all

I put front 'glass and cut the rear fenders. But i could have fit 37's without rubbing that way. With a 3" b/l and some trimming on the front you shouldn't have to touch the rear unless you REALLY flex it out and wheel it hard like i did.

You cannot fit them with stock suspension. You will need atleast a bodylift. Do you just want 35's for looks, cause I know you dont wheel that hard to need 35's.

dont do it there is no way it will work unless you do what 034x4 did, my 33s come real close to rubbing with 3inch body lift.

You could always run 'glass front and rear with no lift and 35's. That would be sweet, lowest COG possible with highest minimum ground clearance compared to alot of other trucks....
