If you want big wheels and no lift, then get low pros and lower it. It'll be just as useless as it is now.

I'm surprised with some of the comments from people here. ESPECIALLY Downeys.

I bet if you had a 3 inch body lift, it wouldn't look silly at all.

31's fit with no rubbing on my 00 STOCK 2WD XLT... much less a stock 4WD.

The older models... well, they might rub... but you said "ALL STOCK RUB"...

Looks alright man, what are your plans with your truck? I dont see much use as it sits now (flex wise). Looks like it would go good in a straight line

You have no clearance, that's all. You have no room for the wheels to turn left or right, you have no usable suspension travel.

Maybe if you live out on the Salt Flats you'll be okay.

Without $1000 worth of fiber glass, and $75,000 in suspension technology.

i dont understand all the negativity here. a lot of budget wheeling trim to fit larger tires. with the front trimmed it looks like a normal 93-97 with 31" tires. ya it'll rub but he fit 35s with no lift and so what? its not like the TTB flex's that much anyway.

we have 285/75/16s on my gals ranger and the gaps are a lot closer then his trimmed pics and they dont rub but on the sway bar at full lock. *shrug* i give ya props for trying something sort of unusual here, most of the people here are sheep. go over on pirate4x4 and u'll see a lot of trimming with minimal lift to fit bigger tires. hell, a guy has a 70s F250 with 44s on it a 2" lift and cut fenders...is that stupid and no room for flex?

Yes, yes it is. I mean I guess it depends on what you are doing. If it is pure mud, then you don't need alot of flex, but if you are doing any trails, then you are going to need it. And TTB has flex, a hell of alot more than our torsion setup. I can see trimming the fenders if your in Moab or if its a crawling only vehicle, just cause it gives you a lower COG, but on a TTB equipped vehicle, you need a solid axel to do any serious wheeling.

I dunno, it just doesn't appeal to me, hacking up a perfectly good truck that much, when all you have to do is add a $200 body lift, and trim a little.
