Lol, your front end is going to love you so much. I hope you have saved up for extra CV's and torsion bars.

I NEVER had an issue with my TREs.. my ball joints didn't last more than a month but the TREs were tight the day i took 'em off for the SAS


the 36x1350s, I'm assuming those are IROKS?
do it, why not.. if you can clear them, just learn how to swap CVs

No but ask Shane how his front end is holding up to abuse with his 35's. From what I hear, he is having trouble with his year old #1 t bars sagging.

A friend of mine is running 34's on a superlift. He bought the truck brand new 2 years ago, and he is now replacing both upper and lower ball joints, as well as TRE's. Everything squeeks on that front end, to the point were next weekend we are going to replace all of the bushings.

Both, there is ALOT of tire there. The width and height will put alot of leverage on your front end. Not to mention the weight and grip it is going to add.

the offset of the wheels will do it especially if you have a tire that wide and you throw it way out there

I have 35's and it's not terrible. I mean I have changed the ball joints 4 times since 06, so about 2 times a year, not a big deal to me...its whatever. You have to pay to play.

U guys that are experiencing ball joint problems prolly all the TTB suspension. If u have the 98 + IFS suspension... u'll be fine. Cv's... whatever i mud drag race with 35.5" tires... 4.10 and stock suspension. I have been bouncing at full throttle trying to get up a hill and nothing broke. It the width of the rims that are gonna wear on the ball joints. esspecially the backspacing. the wider the track width the more leverage on the BJ's.

Shane and JrPro130 are both 98+ IFS and are having parts wear out prematurely.

Hm I just thought about something talking about ball joints. I got ball joints done at Belle Tire back when my truck was stock. When I lift it (bout 6 inches) and put 33's do you think Belle Tire will replace my ball joints when they go out. I have a lifetime replacement on them lol. Just wondering while everyone talks about ball joints.

I ran 36X13.5XR20 Irocks for three years never had any problems. I Finally wore em out and got my 35x14.5xR15 Boggers had them for about six months before trading the truck in. My front end never gave me any issues.
