with a 3" body lift, and if you get 'glass like i read in your other post. you have to get 35's. You don't need new rims. 15x8's are better than 10's for off-roading.

Tires will rub about 1.5 turns on wheel without 'glass or trimming. I drove my truck for about a month without glass. Just don't make alot of u-turns lol

Those are the exact fenders i bought. Hannemann. Very good quality. Took about 2 weeks to get here. (come from california). Make sure you call the guy on the phone and check your order to keep him up on it.

I got about 13-14 MPG with 35's 3.0 and 4.10's with auto tranny.

BTW: thanks for the compliment zach. Hopefully it'll look better with glass and 38's
