Yes they would but RCD doesn't make a 4" lift. They USED to make a 5.5" kit. But that is discontinued. You might be able to find it. And you could clear 37's with that setup.

you CAN clear but its not recommended at all. if you plan on never wheeling it sure clearness on is good for a mall crawler. you want 35's fits great.

plus as we all know the stock RCD coil overs suck and putting 37's on them i woudnt do... also there is the problem of the diff support bracket that needs to be fixed before install or it will brake...


pretty much go order yourself a Superlift they work dont have the problems an RCD does coming out of the box..

well hate to tell you but most 35x12.5x what ever are 34.5 or larger so untill you can buy a size thats a true size they are what they are called. here is BFG's website with the measurements. even a 35 inch tall tire is not a 35 inch tall tire. and a 33 is not really a 33.

and your mtz are really 34.8

I'm saying he fits those 34.4" tires ALOT better then a 34.8" '35' because it's half an inch shorter!!!
