Tires on my F250?

Beefing up my 89 F250 and am looking for tires. If I put a 3 inch body lift and 2 inch suspension lift, what is the biggest tires I can fit? 37's?

Awesome! those trucks are wicked mean! man I love Ford. Alright thanks man that's good news. I was hoping I wasn't going to have to put much more of a lift. I should have plenty then with 3inch body and 2 inch suspension

Yeah these trucks have amazing fender well room stock

The bumper is from bronco graveyard in their winch bumper section. I paid like 650 for it shipped when it first came out. But now they are almost 1000 to get to my door or else all my trucks would have them

Ya I am making the stock bumper I had on mine a bit tougher by reinforcing right behind the front of it and also from top to bottom. We have a lot of old skidder trails that my buddies and I open back up and my F250 comes in handy when I need to snap an 8 inch tree and push it out of the way. stock bumper wouldn't hold up too long with me.

No the stock bumpers offer little actual protection. The red truck in my photos met its demise from a 14 inch spruce going about 50mph. My friend didnt know about a T in the road while he was driving it. I miss that truck a lot

Being drunk could have saved you, you were probably a lot more relaxed when the truck hit.

It didnt hurt me being drunk I can say that much. The catch of it all is I was actually being responsible for a change and letting someone else drive since I was drinking. Well had I been driving we would have never been going that fast nor would I have even been on that road.
