35 inch tires

so i have a bl on my 03 4x4 right now. I had 33 x 12.5 mtrs on for a while, and had no issues. My question is if i put new fiberglass fenders on the front and new aals in the back would i be able to run 35 x 12.5s? would these big tires wear out my stock steering components ? power loss? thanks dudes...

you should regear but you prolly wont have to if you have the 4.0........you should be able to run the 35's with fiberglass fenders on both the front and the rear

not really zabeard is running around 2800 rpm's at 80mph with his 35's and 4.56's....that is alot of rpm for using your truck daily.....i would stick with the 4.10's adn the 35's because of fuel milage ......they will keep your rpm's down at normal speeds...

you could do aal's but you will have the *** end of the truck sitting 2" higher than the front end and it would look funky.....unless you also added lift spindles and aal's, and a chevy shackle to the mix then all you would prolly need is front fenders.

i get the same mpg as bill and he has 4.10s with a manual.

i dont think mine is out of DD range. im still gettign the factory rated city MPG for my truck.

only place bill will get me is on long highway trips with high speeds involved.

i think gearing is a must, but some people can handle the slower speeds.

there is a fine line between boggin the engine, optimum mpg, and too many rpms. the SOHC likes a little more rpm.


but then agian i could really careless what mpg i get. which is why i wanted the torque back, becasue i have a lead foot

Yea around the city it will be fine with 4.56's....Bill said he got either 16.2 or 17.2 mpg on the way down here the friday before the 4th......that is pretty good with 4.10's......

i didn't know he had 4x4 sorry..........

Honestly with a 5 speed manual I dont think its really needed. With an automatic I would say yes it is needed. I had the thought of doing it but after this last trip I dont think that I will.
