clearing 35s

Hey guys, hope everyone is having a good monday. Ive been saving up for a set of 33s, but my brothers a badass and got a hold of a used set of 35s for me. He should be coming up to visit next weekend and will bring them to see if they will fit.

Do you think i will be able to clear 35s. The truck came with a 3 inch lift. here it is sitting on 33" mud terrains

Since them i cranked the torsion bars 3 turns. there is still thread left, so i should be able to get some more lift out of them. I also put on a set of chevy drop shackles on the rear end. I cant really do a body lift right now. heres how im sitting now, what do you all think?

stepsides usually can get away with it better. I think you can just have to find where it rubs if you take it off road any

I'm rocking 35's w/ just a BL. I rub just a little in the front, just on the plastic wheel well where the mudflaps used to be.

Looks killer like Roach's truck.
