that doenst change the fact that he has way to much lift for those tires. specially not going fullwidth. that truck is going to be super tipsy.

I'm kinda thinking the same thing although I'm gonna hold off judgement until I see pics of all four tires on and it's setting on it's own weight.

im just guesstimating but rough measurements from the picture with estamiting the tire to be 37" tall, would make roughly 25" inbetween the fender and tire. That is rediculous. Lets say im a little large on the dim. so say 22" to be on the lower side. that is still rediculous.

yes that is with the small tires, BUT the 37's will still not be much different.....

the front looks like it has A LOT more because of the fiberglass fenders.........the rear will only be around 15-17" above the tire, and any less than that, the tire and bedside would meet when it was flexed...

if its 52" on 30's then say you put on a 37" on that adds 3.5" to the height. so 55.5. then subtract the 37". that equals 18.5", granted this is all rough measurements, but thats still ALOT of space in there.

that is to the TOP of the fender well......it will be A LOT closer to the fender at the edges.....trust me.....it will be.....

for example.....i have almost 12" to the TOP of my fender well from the tire and about 3" at the bottom of the opening..........

last time we talked about it, he wasn't puttting on glass bedsides....

nah it would look fine you trim the bottom. Trimming or not still doesnt take away from the fact that it is too tall and not wide enough

So heres what I and a fellow member discussed on AIM last night. One of the points of lifting a truck is too increase the freaking wheel gap. Quit argueing that he has too much. For craps sake, its his truck, let him set it up how he wants. If he wanted decreased fender gap he would have lowered it. Sure lifting a vehicle is to be able to fit bigger tires, but if someone wants to lift it, fit bigger tires, AND increase the fender gap to how they like it then quit trying to dictate his decisions. I personally think a lifted truck, with huge tires stuffed in there with little fender gap looks hideous, Hello McFly, its lifted for more than just fitting the biggest tire in there with the least amount of fender gap. Gap should compliment tire size, if he runs the 38.5's he mentioned earlier his truck would sit about perfect with the gap/tire ratio.

Just dropping my two pennies in the well.
