rock on! I'd rather see someone cut out the fenders on the truck to run big tires then to lift it a ridiculous amount. This way is much safer... It keeps the center of gravity low. I cut the fenders on my truck to run 35's with a 3 inch body lift but on a gen II which cant even run 31s stock.

u guys are really that friggen dense that u cant figure out why the OP is doing what he did. but, to most here the idea of wheelin is splashin through a 3" deep water puddle so u can get ur truck a little dirty.

and just to add a little more fuel to this threads fire here is a 98 ranger with 36's on it... hahaha


oh and to the OP I don't think it looks that bad.. if you get a set of fender flares to go over where you cut it i bet it would look pretty nice...

It looks cool...but...it just doesnt look like it can do anything but a straight, flat line without hanging up on itself.

You know, it's like guys with bagged and juiced trucks. Yeah they drive em slammed on the ground with the wheels tucked in the fenders, but when they go to turn, they air up and give themselves some clearance so they dont rub.

we just stuck them on there to see what they would look like... you could turn the front wheels about 15 degrees before the tires hit the mud flap.... but i thought it looked pretty neat... but surprisingly the back seemed to fit pretty well...

I say that you do with it what you want to do with it and don't listen to anyone else. I personally think it will look pretty cool without a BL and then cut fenders or just take the bed off completley and put a diamond plate flat bed on.
