i dont understand it either. big tires on small rims im thinking would have more of a chance than that. considering the "Sway" in the sidewalls. corner too fast or land sideways....Boom.

No you can't. That'd be incredibly ugly and incredibly dangerous.

You're using bad logic.

Why can't you shoot two bullets from a gun? You can shoot one bullet and its safe.

Why cant you stick a fork in a power outlet? You can stick a gumwrapper in and not get shocked.


It's not worth explaining in depth, since you don't understand the large difference between 3 and 5 inches of body lift. There's not enough room, but maybe if your body lift pucks were 5 inches wide it'd be sortof safe. And then you're going to have a GIGANTIC gap between your bed and your frame. And your frame is going to be immensely visible. plus your bumpers will be super low and to remount them you'll have to make super weak brackets.

Also, your steering shaft will have to be lengthened..a lot.

Anyways, what do you need a 5 inch body lift for? I have 35 inch tires and a 3 inch body lift...

stepside bed they will be stuffed and be close and probably rub at full lock..

standard bed no way you can fit em without trimming..because of the fender flares..

I c ouldn't fit 35's on my 3'' SL with a slight torsion crank. Plus putting 35's on a 3'' lift looks to stuffed imo. 6" and 35's ftw.

Not too big looking at all. One member had them but he totaled his truck and I think they went with it. I haven't seen another. If someone can find it you will get a chub.
hey now i had 34" TIRES ON STOCK suspension..they were stuffed but worked

With all do respect here.... THOSE PICS ARE DISGUSTING. You are going to buy full out chrome rims with 33" off road tires. I BET YOU that you will NEVER take it off road! That is a waste of money, and doesn't even look right, much less good. You can't even call those show trucks... EHHHHH

I'd rock them, and offroad them occasionally.

I think this truck looks really sweet..

i would too take it off road. i just wont go extreme. i take my truck now on trails. but i dont wanna go thru a bunch of crap and get hydrolocked or tipped over or anything really extreme. i just want it to look good on and off road. thats why im going with the ATs. i think that look is of big rims and big tires looks awesome.
