37's are a tall order, you may have to go fiber fenders, not huge prerunner ones, but 3up and 3 out.

Ill take the Compliment on basing your trukc off mine. lol. 37's are a dream of mine too. It is "doable" but not practicle. you will chew up tires fitting by cranking tbar or run glass fenders like mentioned before. unless you get the BTF A-arm that corrects the camber if i am not mistake.

i think you might be misguided. 37" tires spindle lift and bl a ***** to the wall street truck does not make. your gonna be going everywhere slower. take longer to get going longer to stop and will not corner nearly as well. painting under the hood and interior pieces body color is rice. idk which cherry bomb muffler you mean but if you put a glass pack right next to your cat when that thing burns clean itll melt your muffler out quick.

woah dude, calm down! he's speaking the truth! 37's are big and heavy... your truck was not designed to turn wheels that big, nor stop them... your brakes are going to have a hard time keeping up with the size of those tires... you are adding 10" roughly, of vertical height on your tires... to do that properly, you would have to upgrade your disks, probably put 4 piston calipers on, rear disk brakes... and what size motor do you have? it's a lot of power to turn those....
