what gear ratio do you have?

and the cheapest BL may be drilling holes through some hockey pucks.

Yeah, and so is Chris, but you can never know when they'll fail. The truck's only as strong as it's weakest link.

if you have the right backspacing on the wheels, you shouldnt have to worry about too much contact.

I'd say 35s will definitely fit. I wouldn't go much larger than that though... 36s would be the biggest I'd run on my rig. With that, I'd regear to atleast 4.88. Also, a locker would help you out a ton. And what size axle do you have? If you have a 7.5" I'd strongly suggest an 8.8" which can be found in many rangers and explorers. If you get it off an explorer, you might even be able to do a disc brake conversion also!
