recommended tire?

hey guys, it's been a while since i was here. about to get my cab fixed, because, if you'll remember, i rolled it last january. but i have a bigger question. i'm looking at a set of 35 inch TSL SuperSwampers. i'm running a 3 inch body lift, and stock 2wd transmission and driveline, with 4.10 gearing in the rear. CAN i do this? the guy's selling the tires for 500 dollars. i do not want to cut anything or remove the stock bumpers. the tires are in excellent shape, have plenty of tread left, and have not been re-grooved. advice and tips would be greatly appreciated

Probably not without rubbing. You'll be sluggish on take-off with 4.10s but people have done it. I would suggest since you are 2wd (unless you're an edge) doing a spindle lift and something else in the rear to give you some more clearance.

CAN you? With enough cranking of the t-bars (assuming you have them), sure, you probably can. 35s have been done before with just a BL. SHOULD you? No. You need more lift (spindles up front, shackles or lift springs in the rear) and you need to regear (I'd recommend 4.88s).

No. Intercoms sizing is more accurate than anyone else. So their 35 is bigger than most other 35's. And most other 35's won't fit. So definite no to the swampers. Especially with 4.10's

Didn't notice the Interco part from OP. I just noticed 35s. You're right about them being true to size.

Most 35s are really about 34.5-34.8" tall, but you're much more likely to get a true 35 with Interco. May not sound like much difference, but it means a lot when you're talking about whether or not you rub while turning.

I would lift the truck a little more than just a body lift. Unless you are okay with cutting/trimming.
