wheel spacers but just find wheels that stick out, dont get wheel spacers. I don't remember my backspacing but my tires dont stick out as much as they used to.

So what's gonna happen with the old wheels? You have no idea how long i've been looking for those wheels, or something similar.

Which would be better to get, 20x8 or 20x10 inch rims for my 35x12.50 mud grapplers. And is the backspacing the same on 10" rims as on 8" rims? What backspacing would i need on 10" wheels if i want my tires to stick out about 1-1.5" past my fender flares?

20x10 will probably be what you want for a 12.50 tire and as for backspacing i think 5 inches would have you around 1-2 inches of tire stickout out of the wells. anyone feel free to correct me if im wrong

Everybody is telling me that 35x12.50 with 20x10s with 4-4.5" bs wont fit on my ranger with the RCD 5" lift and the coilovers turned up about some in the front. They said i need 7-9" of lift to clear them. Is this true bc i really want 35s. Do i need to get a 1" bl to go with them to be safe?

dude i think theyll fit just fine. i have a 33x13.50 on a 18x10 with 5" backspacing and 0 offset my tires sit flush with side of my truck, they only rub the swaybar at full lock and im only bodylifted and keyed. so if you get a 4-4.5 backspacing on a 10 wide rim i think youll have that inch sitting outside your wheel well.

Tell them they dont know anything about trucks. You'll run into idiots who think they know more about your truck than you do. My truck used to have 35x12.50 with a 3 inch bodylift. You will have no problem at all fitting 35s. Also, i dont think they make a 1 inch bodylift, you have to buy a 3 inch bodylift and mangle/modify it.

here's 35s and 3 inch bodylift


2 trucks with 35s and 3 inch bodylift


Both Andy and I offroad the crap out of our trucks. Mine sometimes run, before i double lifted.

You can piece together your own 1" BL Aaron, just get the blocks on ebay and the bolts at Lowe's.

If you're gonna body lift go the full 3 inches. You dont need 1 inch and youll be bummed you didnt go bigger. I like my double lift! As to the 1 inch lift, i was just thinking about the hardware that would need to be 1 inch, like relocation bracket for radiator and whatnot.

Nah you don't need any of that stuff, the 1" isn't enough to cause trouble. I agree though, all the work to lift the cab and bed just go ahead and do the 3", its worth it.
